Only a little over a week until Christmas! That means planning for the festivities are in full swing. Still looking for some decoration ideas for the big Christmas dinner? You’ve come to the right place!
The holiday season is finally here! Which means family gatherings and drinking loads of wine to make them tolerable. Here are some of the coolest wine glasses so you can ignore your Aunt asking you questions in style.
As the cold weather picks up, so do our drinking habits. While our parents told us to “not judge a book by its cover”, we can’t helping buying the wine with the cutest bottle and labeling. Here are 11 of our favorite bottles we’ve come across in the past few months. These bottles make for the perfect thing to bring to that family Thanksgiving dinner, and for making it through that dinner.
Fall is just the best. From the cool weather to the delicious food and drinks (yea, I’m referring to Pumpkin Spice), everything is perfect. You might think winter is better because of Christmas, or summer because of the beach. But let me explain to you why fall wins.
First, lets talk about the weather. If you’re in the New York area like us, summer is brutal. Summer days are filled with humidity and 85+ degrees temperatures. But fall fixes all of this. The temperature moves into the 50s and humidity is a thing of the past. This leads to falling leaves and beautiful landscapes.

And this transitions into the next reason: fall fashion. Cool fall weather allows for layering and more fun fashion than summer does. But, its not so cold that you need to be bundled up like a burrito. There are so many styles to play with, from warm cardigans to jackets of all sorts.
And boots. Soooo many boots. Who doesn’t love boots?

Next is the food. There’s nothing better than warm, home cooking in the fall atmosphere. Toasty biscuits, cider doughnuts, and melt-in-your-mouth pies are just a few of the key staples of fall cooking.
Plus, the biggest food day of the year is in the fall: Thanksgiving.

What comes with good food? Good drinks and the fall has plenty of both. The most obvious is the infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte. However “basic” it is perceived to be, it will always hold a place in our hearts. And stomachs. The perfect hot chocolate is next on our list.
Another great thing about fall is that it’s the start of the Holiday season. We start of with Halloween, the best reason to get drunk and eat immense amounts of chocolate. Next up, Thanksgiving, the best meal of the entire year surrounded by loved ones. And this leads us right into winter and the Christmas/Hanukkah festivities.
Finally, Fall is the coziest season there is. Grab a fluffy sweater, a Pumpkin Spice latte, light a fall-scented candle, and lounge in bed with a good book. What’s not to love?
