My Holiday Party – Watch the video and get the look

Remember yesterday when I walked you through how to throw a super easy practically ‘effortless’ holiday cocktail party? Well, today you are going to get to watch the feature film of said party (and see the tips in action and a sneak peek into The Fig House space).

In case you wanted to savor the laughter and debauchery, here are some still photos of the party with some of my favorite people.

It was a small party – just a couple gals, a couple gays and a baby who was trying to eat a miniature apple as only a baby could – failing adorably. And that’s Ginny’s arm, she didn’t make it into the shots but her wrist is really carrying the whole scene.

They drank and laughed and swapped hilarious stories about holiday parties past.

And we apparently handed each other food a lot – because its the season of giving so sometimes you just give pass sandwiches back and forth a few times. Thanks to Scott, Orlando, Corbett and Ginny for coming. I had leftover cheese for days. While many of the items I use are vintage, here’s how you, too, can get the look! Friends and baby not included.

This post and video was in partnership with Harmon Kardon because style is silent and weird without good music to listen to. :) And check out the tips on how to throw this party from this post.  Photo Credit: Tessa Neustadt

    Love the simplicity and elegance of this party!
    Sidenote: for some reason I always thought you were British…Now I know! :)

    • Emily

  2. Sarah

    Yay! I glimpse of Orando and is fine-self (HUNK!). And I live for your buying guides. I wish there was a way to put “emily” at check out and you get some kick-back…cuz seriously, I buy what you say!

  3. Zoe Royall

    The Fig House totally sparkles in this video! (Everything copper and rosy gold perfection that I want right this instant also helps). That dual fabric upholstered MCM wing chair? I DIE!

    • Emily

      Yeah! I forgot to link that we shot there … will do. xx

  4. JO

    Emily, you look absolutely stunningly beautiful.

    • Emily

      So weird to see yourself like that (you know, bigger :)), but i’m super happy right now so i think no matter how you look, when you are happy there is always that thing that hopefully comes through. At least thats what i’m telling myself. Thank you so much. xx

  5. Elizabeth

    You are so adorable!!! Can you source the ocean painting in the background? LOVE it.

  6. Amy

    Oh my. How did I just find your blog for the first time?! It’s now 11:00am and I’m in my pj’s and unshowered and I need to pick my kid up from pre-k in 10 minutes…. Love your style and especially sense of humour! Looks to me like you’ll be one beautiful, fun, happy momma!

    That bump is so freaking sweet! You look great Emily. Not too much longer and you’ll be dancing with your own little man!

  10. Laurabeth

    Did you notice you wrote you invited “a couple of gals, a couple of gays”…?!

    That dress is a personal favorite of mine, and I wore it a lot while pregnant too!

  12. Kathryn

    I totally have that same copper pot, I found it under my house and call it Chester Copperpot. I have plants in it, but it will now make an appearance at a future party.

  13. I love your blog and your writing style. You always inspire and always make me laugh! I can imagine everyone who reads your blog wishes you were their friend. You’re awesome.

  14. Jeannie
