New Years Resolution


3…2…1…Happy New Year! If you’re like me, you love the promise of a fresh start that comes with the start of each year. Also, if you’re anything like me, New Year’s resolutions are not your forte. But even I can stick to them when they have to do with home décor. On that note, here are a few ideas for resolutions you can make (and hopefully not break!) for creating a warm, inviting atmosphere in your home this New Year.

Resolve to…make it personal: I’ll admit it, I’m mad for monograms. Incorporate an extra-personal touch throughout your home by monogramming anything from pillows to cocktail aprons to placemats.

Resolve to…be a gracious host: Have guest towels on hand when there’s company – as beautiful as they are useful, these must-have linens can make anyone feel like the guest of honor.

Cooki's Aprons

Resolve to…have a happier happy hour: Out with the old and in with the new rings especially true when it comes to cocktails, in my opinion. Try garnishing drinks with spices like ginger or rosemary at your next dinner party or brunch.

Place a chic cocktail napkin beneath each glass for a sophisticated touch that will have everyone asking for refills.
