Over the weekend I had lots of holiday cheer sprinkled on me and I went to my very first Dreidels & Drinks party! I worked in higher education for 7 years and left with 2 grad assistants that are like my family. Leah is Jewish and she’s been very cool about teaching me about her faith and her holidays so I was excited for a little pre-Hanukkah celebration.
Can I say that if I’m the black Martha Stewart, Leah is the Jewish Martha Stewart. Everything was so adorably decorated that I didn’t want to eat anything it was so perfect!
The thing that cracked me up the most was before the party she asked me if she’d make it on the blog if her party was a success. LOL I didn’t know getting your own post on the The Art of Accessories or Crumbs & Creativity was a life highlight but I’m going to oblige her.
Another added bonus of the evening, I got to see a couple of former students and catch up. Cait (pictured above left) was wearing a very cool chunky black knitted scarf that she bought at the Gap. I’m now on a mission to knit one in a vibrant shade that’s just as chunky and fun as hers. I feel like I need it in my favorite shade of green…
And since tonight marks the first night of Hanukkah I thought it was only proper for me to share my first pre-Hanukkah party. Happy Hanukkah!
