To help inspire you and pull your gathering together, we’ve rounded up a few of our entertaining essentials for hosting a kick a** hot chocolate bar party! Enjoy!

Top Winter Apparel You Need in Your Wardrobe This Winter

Dallas weather has been all over the map this winter. From 70 degrees one day to 20 degrees the next – we have to be prepared for anything! Unfortunately, the one thing we are missing this winter (despite our trip to Lake Tahoe over Christmas) is snow!

Thankfully, this will hopefully change for us during our trip to Vail this weekend, so I am on the major hunt for some cute and trendy (I’m obsessing over all these cute fur pom pom hats this year!), yet warm apparel to bundle up in!

2017 Highlights -The Everyday Hostess

Stay tuned for some fun changes!) plus Landon and I are deep in the house buying process, and my goodness is that a feat! We have some exciting changes for The Everyday Hostess this year, but we’ve needed some time to just take a breath and focus all our planning efforts.

During this exciting time, we have been very reflective of 2017. What an incredible year and one that will be hard to ever beat! Landon and I got married in June, both started new roles at work, started our new little Etsy shop and continued to grow The Everyday Hostess.

We are so grateful for each and every one of you following our journey and, of course, our favorite parties, so here’s a little recap of all the greatness 2017 had to offer!
