Happy Holidays everyone from the my home, the #MiaChateauFH! This Holiday season I couldn't wait to create a beautiful gold table complimented by festive cocktails, and glittery details.

To create my table, I picked up beautiful plates and stemware from Z Gallerie. The plates are the Luna Dinnerware and the glasses are the Avelina glassware set. My favorites though are the stemless "cheers" champagne flutes which I plan to use straight into my New Year's celebrations.

What I love most about the table is the simplicity of the centerpiece. This time of year the last thing we need is more stress, and finding flowers and arranging them is in many of our cases, stressful! So I opted for mini faux pine trees which I lined down the center {I got them at Michaels!}. Around them I sprinkle glittered pinecones - which you can buy or DIY, and little jewels.

 Alongside my table I used my buffet space mostly for more decorations, like faux box woods, trays filled with bottles of champagne, as well as for my premier cocktail. I just love the way the buffet looks with the back side lined with faux garland {again, faux being the key word!}. 

 My cocktails are a "must" this Holiday season:

•         2 cups (16 ounces) good vodka

•         1 cup (8 ounces) orange liqueur (recommended: Cointreau)

•         1 cup (8 ounces) pomegranate juice (recommended: Pom Wonderful)

•         1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (3 limes)

•         Lime peel strips, to garnish

Not a fan of cocktails? I even sprinkle pomegranates on top of champagne this time of year to add a little color!
