Table Runner | Wine Coaster | Martini Shaker | Cheese Board | Wine glasses

There is nothing I love more than entertaining whether it be a full blown dinner party or an impromptu happy hour with neighbors.  With the holidays right around the corner so many stores are getting in some great entertaining items.  Perfect to use over the holidays or to use as gifts. 

This round cheese board is my favorite,  perfect for a small nibble.  I actually own two.  They make great gifts too and are under $50.  The table runner is such a fun addition to any table and great for the holidays because of the sparkle.

Our fig tree has had so many figs so I have been trying to think of ways to use them.  Pictured below are figs sliced and wrapped with prosciutto then drizzled with honey- super yummy!  

I am kind of obsessed with this wine coaster!!  The gold lips, are so fun!   It is only $22.  I love the idea of this as a hostess gift or birthday gift for a friend paired with a good bottle of wine.

My martini shaker has since sold out but this one is almost identical and even cheaper than what I paid for mine.  I love gold bar accessories.

I really like these simple stemless wine glasses.  They can go in the dishwasher which makes clean up easy! 

I want to add these pink martini glasses to my pink glass collection I love them so much.  I have started collecting pink glasses and these would be the perfect addition to my collection.

I recently bought this Pom Pom throw and I am loving it.  The pom poms make me happy every time I walk in my den.  Perfect for snuggling on the couch after entertaining!

A few other entertaining favorites.  The Nordstrom Home department has so many fabulous things right now!

Gold Serving Platter | Wine Glasses | Ice Bucket | Pom-Pom Throw

Pink Decanter | Stripe Cheese Board | Nest Candle | Gold Abstract Pitcher

Pink Champagne Glasses | Wooden Bowl

I want one of each.  I am especially lusting over those pink decanters for my console table in my dining room.  That Nest candle is my favorite scent for the holidays and I love the pretty container it comes in.  

Right now Nordstrom also has this special holiday edition of the 3 Nest holiday scents.  Trust me they all smell amazing.
