Growing up I can remember the excitement I felt whenever my mother would entertain at our home. I loved the sounds of laughter and music vibrating through the house, I loved waking up early to help her clean anticipating who would show up, I loved playing coat check girl as I took peoples purses and coats to my room, and I loved being my mother’s helper throughout the night as she entertained our closest friends and family. It is a feeling that stays with me today as I entertain in my own home, taking cues from my mother when hosting my own events. It is this love of entertaining, of hearing that laughter and the sound of music vibrating in my own home that continues to bring me joy. As such Weekends With Winter has been birthed from that love. Here, I hope to document my own parties with friends and family while giving readers tips for their own gatherings. It is a joy of mine to host people in my home and it will be an even bigger joy to document those moments for you. I hope you will enjoy spending your Weekends With Winter….
