Holidays at Home

Our house is all ready for Christmas, inside and out! This weekend is BIG at Casa Savage... we are having 2 Christmas parties and then Tuesday Mom arrives! My thinking was that ONE deep clean on the house would cover both parties and my Mom's arrival, hence back to back parties but we shall see if that logic was crazy come next week! LOL
We got new rugs for the house too and what do you know.... Elway has had an upset tummy all week so I have spent the week cleaning rugs! It's always something! LOL
 I can't tell you how much I love this window over my stove, and the rest of the view is open space and sometimes while I am cooking I can see deer walking by!
 I like a clean easy tree, I don't put too much on it and make it too fussy!  And fingers crossed so far Elway has not messed with the tree at all! YAY
 Last year on clearance I added a tree to the formal dining room and this year we mixed it up by putting the tree in a Holiday box with a blanket.... I love how it turned out! On the buffet by the tree I have set up a Holiday candy buffet for the parties this weekend!!
 I wanted to keep the table simple this year, so I paired down the formal dining room table and I am pleased! Can you spot Ralph?
 I LOVE the living room at night with the fire lit and the tree! It is so cozy and warm, Hallmark movies on the tube also make the night extra special!
 To end the weekend just right I made a pumpkin bundt cake and BEHOLD...... the cake came out perfect! I never get the cake out of the pan all the way, this literally made my week! LOL This was also so good and easy! This would be perfect for Christmas...

This past weekend Matt and I took some friends to Georgetown for a day trip to kick off the Holidays! Georgetown does a big Christmas market the first two weekends of December and this was our first time to experience it! And as you can see when we went to the brewery we ran into St. Nick! I mean really how funny and I LOVE this picture!
 We went to lunch, check out the market, tasted beers at the Brewery, said Hello to our friends at the Jerkey shop, played games at the house and then I made Chicken Tortilla Soup for dinner before we all headed back to the city! We took the boys too and the dogs had plenty of laps to sit on and faces to kiss!
The only thing missing was SNOW! Literally Colorado is having a serious lack of snow this December! We didn't go to the museums like I wanted to but you can't do everything in one day! Thanks to all our friends who spent the day with us!

When Matt and I were home for Thanksgiving something special happened..... All of Matt's side of our family were all together! And we honestly don't have any family pictures so we wanted to make sure that happened! A good friend of mine and great photographer agreed to make that happen on Thanksgiving day! I wanted to share some of the pictures with you all, I couldn't love them anymore!

These are photos I know I will cherish!

Party Ready

The Holiday Party season is HERE, I love the combination of Christmas Cheer, great food, fine wine and getting Holiday ready! I guess now all I need is to be invited to a Holiday party! LOL, but really though. The good news for you is that I have been dreaming up looks all week and couldn't wait to share them with you. 
This skirt from JCrew is EVERYTHING!!! I am obsessed and I need someone to get this and wear it on my behalf! You know me, I LOVE pairing something fancy with a graphic tee and moto jacket! This outfit just exudes Christmas COOL!
Mad for Plaid

I am loving these jeans and knew I had to style them as if I need another reason to buy them! These metal earrings are perfect to match the metal look in the jeans! I love that small check Buffalo Plaid top and you are party or date night ready!
Holiday Date Night

You guys this blue pleated skirt is on sale at Anthro and I just got it! I also have this oversized star sweater and I can't wait to pair the two together. The sweater will go below your butt in a nod to the 40s and paired with these heels you can be warm and chic! This lace skirt is a STEAL and I love pairing it with thin turtleneck! Perfect for drinks with the girls or Christmas Eve!
Holidays 2017 #2

I know the 90s are BACK and that means the slip dress is having another moment. I styled this one way but two price points. The velvet dress is under $100 and the fun pink number is more of a splurge! Once again the moto jacket for the WIN

The last thing you need is the perfect hostess gift and I have you covered.......
