A Beautiful Holiday Party

Last week I had the pleasure of meeting a wonderful lady named Diane Gottsman.  Diane is a nationally recognized etiquette professional and owner of The Protocol School of Texas, which is a company that specializes in corporate etiquette training.  She is also the author of Pearls of Polish, an etiquette guide for today's busy woman. Diane's website was named one of the top 100 websites for women by Forbes! I love her blog,, she offers little etiquette tips on different subjects.  To top all of this off, she is the sweetest, most down to earth person you would ever like to meet.  Diane is one of the people that immediately makes you feel better and happier when you are around them and I am happy to now call her my friend.

Diane had a Christmas tea at her house and I helped with the goodies.  We spent the morning doing one of my favorite things: preparing for a party!  Here are a few photos of all the goodies.

Coconut Cake makes a great presentation on a holiday table, very elegant.

Sugared cranberries add just enough color to look very festive.

No holiday table is complete without smiling Gingerbread Men!

Red Velvet Shortbread Cookies!

I love how Christmasy these look!

Add candy cane sticks to cake pops for a fun, festive look!

  1. Wow, all those goodies look great, but I especially love the look of those red velvet shortbread. You both did a fantastic job.


Hi there! Let me know what you think... I'd love to hear from you!
