Holiday Happenings

{Have you entered my ONE Styling giveaway yet? The Spiral Wand and Ribbon Wand would be spectacular gifts for yourself or a loved one! --enter here}

Are you ready dolls? December is upon us and I am filled with anticipation of all the wonder the holiday season is sure to bestow. This year I'm planning a slightly scaled-back season, filled with good friends and events but with enough down time to really soak up the sparkle that only Christmas can bring. In between cookie baking, wine sipping, and cozy snuggling, these are the events I'm making time for.

Saturday 12/1
Ohio City Holiday Festival - Market Square Park 11a-4p {free}

Christmas tree sales, holiday vendors, cookie decorating, mulled Christmas Ale from Great Lakes Brewing, photos with Santa and more.

Hot Toddy Party - Banyan Tree 12-9p {free}

One of my absolute favorite parties all year. Banyan Tree's Hot Toddy Party is a can't-miss event. Shop, visit, drink, and be merry. Gifts available for just about everyone on your list.

Thursday 12/6
PlayhouseSquare Partner's Night at The Santaland Diaries - E14th St Theatre 6:30p (reception) 7:30p (show) {$30}

All that HO HO HO, holiday merriment, and family bonding can sometimes be a bit much. Bring your bad behavior and make merry with David Sedaris' hilariously naughty tales. Enjoy complimentary cocktails and appetizers at a pre-show reception - this evening only.

Friday 12/7
Powder Room Boutique Grand Re-Opening Event 6-9p (free, please rsvp}

The Powder Room relocated just a few paces from their old location in ETON and they are throwing one heck of a soiree to celebrate their 5th anniversary. It seems impossible that it could be more gorgeous than the original but I peeked in the other day and it is. Swing by and visit Kelly, beauty maven extraordinaire, and see what they've added to the menu, sip some cocktails and enjoy appetizers from Gatherings Kitchen. Free gifts with purchase will be available from Kevin Aucoin, Hourglass, Ellis Faas, Natura Bisse and more!

Saturday 12/8
Wrapped in Tradition: A Gordon Square Holiday 12-6p {free}

The festivities abound all around the square! Enjoy hot chocolate w/ Santa at Grace Brothers, Mr Jingeling at Sweet Moses, chestnut roasting at The Foundry, live music, trolley rides, ice sculptures and more.

and while you're there...
Bazaar Bizarre - 78th Street Studios 10a {free}
Snag unique, local, handmade goods for all the good girls and boys on your list. The food trucks will be out, live music plating, and a festive photobooth. Check out the lineup of vendors here.

Friday 12/14
Art Walk and Tremont BrewHaHa Hop 6-10p {free}

You know how jolly Santa is, right? Now just imagine how happy he is with a fresh beer in hand. You can valet your car at Dante, Fahrenheit, Lago, Lolita or Parallax for just $5 and have Lolly the Trolly whisk you around to all corners of Tremont. Tour the A Christmas Story House for 1/2 price, enjoy specials and raffles at select bars, and get your naughty (or nice!) pic taken with Sexy Santa at Aperture. Select trolley stops will be avail until midnight.
