One of my favourite things about hosting is bringing friends and family together in an atmosphere filled with warmth, joy, and togetherness.
There’s no doubt about it, the fall and holiday seasons are filled with entertaining, get-togethers, and parties! Whether you’re hosting them or attending them (probably both), if you’re like me, you are always on the look out for the perfect pieces to add to your decor as well as to give as gifts during the holidays.
I wanted to show how you can host a beautiful wine & cheese party with artisanal items from the One of a Kind Online Shop. The fun thing about this inspiration post is that all of these items equally make unique presents that are sure to be loved by their recipients.
When I’m planning for a party, I like to jot down possible themes, colours, food and drink, and decor ideas to help me create a cohesive and fabulous event. For this cocktail party, I envisioned a small french cafe and used that concept as my inspiration. I wanted it to feel cozy and inviting with a touch of whimsical.
To create the look, I perused the One of a Kind Online Shop and found many special pieces that I fell in love with – from housewares to food and beyond. The beauty of the items I chose, is they’re from various local artisans here in Ottawa and Montreal. It always makes me happy to support local businesses and artists.
Here is the list of items that I included in our fall & holiday party inspiration:
- Cherry wood cheese board from Live Edged Woodcraft
- Eco-Friendly Magnetic Chalk Board from OmmaSae
- Hors D’oeuvre Plates from Atelier Make
- Porcelain Pitcher from Raging Bowl Pottery
- Canadiana Table Runner & Pillow from Fish Eye Sisters
- Print from Opulent Pines
- Ceramic Chevron Tumblers from Annika Hoefs Ceramics
- Beeswax Candles from Little Bee Art
- Wooden Coasters from GrainDeep
- Cranberry & Chocolate Spread from Nutra – Fruit Canneberge
- Shortbread Cookies from Scotch Mountain Shortbread
- Joseph & Anni Scarf from String Theory
- Mixer Syrups from Tonic Maison
As you can see, the One of a Kind Online Shop is truly the perfect destination to shop from local artisans for all things Canadian handmade.
