Whether we like to admit it or not, Christmas isn’t exactly the most relaxing of holidays. Between last minute shopping and (often times obligatory) family events, there’s hardly even a second to stop and breathe. With this in mind, our lifestyle contributor, Carrie, crafted a late season coffee social event for her closest gals to bring them all some much needed calm reflection time. A delicious locally-sourced cake, pretty blooms and one-of-a-kind vintage treasures brought the entire Saturday soirée together with just a bit of thoughtful styling.

“When I first started planning the event, I considered a full spread of food and cocktails. But the intimidation of coordinating gave way to a more simplified, late-afternoon coffee party. I set up my Mini Keurig alongside a couple of bite-sized treats and called it done! It turned out to be all we needed to celebrate the season.”
