Hosting For The Holidays

Whether a catered dinner or a cocktail party, hosting elegant holiday gatherings should be more fun than stressful. Here are a few tips for putting together a delightful party to celebrate winter holidays with family and friends.

 

Make a list

From guests to groceries, write down all the details and preparations for the party, including the type of event. This will help you stay organized and ease the stress of last-minute loose ends.

 

Menu prep

Create a holiday menu (think easy-prep recipes) and cook ahead of time. Less time in the kitchen means more time mingling with guests. For catering, ensure orders are placed and confirmed well in advance.

 

Sips for all

Set up a self-serve beverage station complete with sodas, garnishes, infused liquors, recipes and nonalcoholic options for guests to help themselves.

 

Deck the halls

Decide on decorations — less is more in the name of serving space — like small accents, festive florals, bowls of ribbons or seasonal ornaments and a string or two of twinkle lights for good measure.

 

Play some tunes, open your home and enjoy good company!

Joyful Journey With Kristi Kennimer


_DMP3143

When Kristi Kennimer became a gallery-represented artist (before her own gallery), she says it was bittersweet. She had the recognition, but felt uncomfortable in the pretense of the art scene. She wondered if there was a way to be a serious artist creating seemingly unserious work and selling to serious collectors who don’t take the art scene seriously.

With her own experience in mind, Kennimer has made Scarlet Reagan a place others like her feel comfortable.

Screen Shot 2019-11-20 at 10.19.17 AM

Her original group are women who are incredible artists and who have a positive outlook and bright shining spirit.

They are also the kind of people who are game for trying new things. For example, Kennimer has asked them all to create a limited series of gift-able art for this holiday season. She’s passionate about offering her customers affordable original art to give to their loved ones instead of forgettable China-made trinkets. 

_DMP3003

“Come see us this holiday,” Kennimer lights up. “My family and I have been working for months creating an interactive anamorphic art installation with gifts you can buy right off the installation for under $30. It’s going to be such a fun shopping experience, but I’m most excited about the meaning behind it!”
