a Christmas table inspired by music

wrapping paper for a place setting

I like using fun wrapping paper as my inspiration for dinner party themes. 

Just select your favorite paper, trace large circles using a salad plate, and there you go, you have a unique place setting! 

The possibilities are endless to create custom themes for your next party!

While I’m here today, I wanted to share some of my "Tablescaping Essentials" with you. I have a whole page on the Amazon website with my favorite picks for setting a beautiful table.

Quite often time is of the essence, and I have last minute projects or events to work on, so I turn to Amazon for one or two day delivery. You’d be surprised at how many amazing items they have to offer! And I'm constantly updating this page with my new favorites. 

You can check it out here, at Tablescaping Essentials.

The Village Inn on Balboa Island has created three new holiday cocktails in honor of this year’s Christmas boat parade and its grand marshals Leslie Mann and Mark McGrath. 

The Gingerbread Mann is made with cranberry rosemary ice cubes, The Balboa Bar is garnished with a piece of world-famous Balboa Bar {chocolate covered frozen banana}, and of course, you must try the classic McGrath Moonshine Mule!
