The night was a great inspiration to get in to the holiday mood, with some wonderful support from some special guests!

Cheers to Authentic Wines and Spirits Merchants. Nikki and Kenn completely spoiled us with Louis Roederer Brut Premier and the Louis Roederer Brut Nature - a zero dosage champagne with a label designed by the furniture designer Philippe Starck.

SWEET!  We really enjoyed having wife and husband team (we can relate) Christy and Bernhard of Christy’s Gourmet GiftsChocolate charcuterie boards featuring  their handmade chocolates, brittles and infamous crunch are such a unique entertaining idea!  Pre-made kits make it simple!  And… be sure to ask about the Smash Snowman - a buttercrunch filled chocolate snowman that you smash and enjoy - perfect for your holiday table!  Visit them at 3530 Mainway Drive.
