Hosting the Holidays Essentials

This year is a little different than last year. Events are opening up and we are enjoy more get togethers. This is such an exciting time. Are you planning on hosting a get together for Thanksgiving or Christmas or some other holiday event this year? I have compiled my essentials including decorating, houseware, and kitchen items that will have your home ready to host the holidays this season!

Ugly Christmas Sweaters

Do you love being the center of attention at the company Christmas party? Well, then has the perfect sweater for you. Brighten the party with one of their light-up sweaters that are dazzled with LED ornaments and Christmas lights. Flashy is definitely in this year! They also have 3D sweaters (yes, the same one Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan were sporting) featuring a stuffed moose bursting through the chest that will make you stick out like a sore thumb. Or if you are feeling the need to be a little naughty this holiday season – try one of their suggestive sweaters featuring raunchy elves, dirty Santa, or some tacky reindeers. They are quite proud of their pun themed sweaters as well – Jingle Balls, Let’s get Baked, Santa’s Favorite Ho. These are sure to get a chuckle or two out of even the most serious of folks.

Marquette Castings 6-Quart Dutch Oven & Travel Bag

Whoever said not to buy your significant other cooking items has not seen this Marquette Castings Dutch Oven. I have been eyeing a Dutch Oven up for a while but was on the fence of taking that leap with the price. LET ME TELL YOU, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.
There are few pieces of cookware as versatile as the Dutch Oven. The Marquette Castings Dutch Oven is designed to work flawlessly from oven to stove top to tabletop. Cast iron’s heat retention is ideal for many cooking processes. The simple shape of the round Dutch oven is as versatile as the material. No cooking surface has all the qualities of an enamel finish, non-stick, non-toxic, easy to clean, beautiful and durable. Built to last a lifetime - Warrantied to last a lifetime. The Marquette Castings Dutch Oven is the piece of cookware you need in your kitchen. Five-star rated and durably designed to work flawlessly from oven to stove top to table top, with any recipe you can dream up. The interior enameled cooking surface is non-stick, non-toxic, easy to clean and beautiful to look at! Cast iron’s ability to retain heat makes it the perfect pot to bring a hot (or cold) dish to any gathering. But, traveling with a Dutch Oven can be a challenge – until now. The Dutch Oven Travel Bag makes traveling with a meal simple. The interior material helps insulate your food while remaining heat resistant so you can take the pot directly from the oven to the bag. Dual straps make one handed carrying simple. Grip pads on the bottom keep the bag from sliding around in the car.

Teleflora®, the world’s leading floral delivery service, is adding to the spirit of the holiday season by encouraging everyone to Love Out Loud™. Whether it be with a festive centerpiece for a family gathering, a handcrafted bouquet sent across the miles, or uniting loved ones in its latest campaign and social media contest, Teleflora knows that being together is what’s most special about the holidays.

Teleflora’s newest campaign, “Nana,” embodies the nostalgia of the holidays and reminds us that being with loved ones is what’s most important. Launching today, the spot follows a little girl after she receives a Teleflora bouquet from her grandma. She is saddened her Nana won’t be there for the holidays and brings the flowers everywhere, symbolizing her Nana’s presence—while playing tea party, reading bedtime stories, and everything else. On Christmas Day, she is overcome with joy when Nana surprises her at her door and they are finally reunited.
