The holiday season is always an excuse for me to surround myself with the people I love, shower them with presents, and of course enjoy festive cocktails. I finally got my Christmas tree so I am really getting into the holiday spirit over here. To celebrate, I’m so excited to partner with Ecco Domani this season. I love that they inspire me to add a special touch to upgrade my every day. This time, it’s all about gift wrap! I wanted to share my spin on a Holiday Wrapping Happy Hour,not just your average gift wrapping session. Usually I’m sitting in my office wrapping gifts for family and friends by myself. What’s the fun in that?! Invite your friends over for a wrapping party and some cocktails.
The Trimmings // Stocking up – pun not intended – on wrapping paper is a given. What gives that extra special touch? Luxe bows and ribbons. Collecting different textures – and glitter – is always a good idea. Want to create some great texture? Mix different sized ribbons together to get a cool layered look. Press-on ready-made bows are also a great option for your friends that might not be the best at wrapping
The Cocktail // When I think festive, I think fizzy. So naturally that means it’s time to pop the prosecco! Ecco Domani recently launched the newest addition to their collection, their Ecco Domani Prosecco. I am ALWAYS on the hunt for new prosecco to stock my fridge so I was excited to try it out. For a daytime cocktail, nothing beats a classic mimosa. So I call this drink my Mimosa with a Holiday Twist. Place 3-4 fresh cranberries in the bottom of your champagne flute. Pour a splash of orange juice into your flute. Next, open your prosecco bottle and top off your glass. Finally, garnish with a fresh sprig of rosemary for a great spicy twist. This drink is so light and refreshing and is the perfect midday treat with my girlfriends.
The Treats // Nothing pairs better with prosecco than some sweet treats. I picked up some mini cheesecakes for my friends to enjoy. All these elements create the perfect wrapping party that you can throw with your friends. Stay tuned for another holiday post with Ecco Domani next week!

I take every opportunity to throw on a jacket. What’s better than a jacket with a hood?! The weather has been so up and down these past few weeks. Rain, hot, cold. It’s all over the place. At least now we have a little chilly blast to make it feel more like December. Wearing some of my go-to pieces. This leather tote is a new addition and I am kind of obsessed. It’s that soft buttery leather that I can’t help but keep touching. For days I need to pack a lot with me, I always grab for a bigger bag. It’s nice to get out of my black bag rut.
