The holidays are such a special time of year, don’t you think? They’re enchanting occasions where traditions, (new and old), seem to cast a wonderful spell. And as if by magic, suddenly love and happiness is everywhere, like the glitter of snow sparkling in sunshine.
Together with the spirit of giving and the thrill of a fresh start with the coming New Year, for us it’s extra special because December 29th is mine and Kevin’s wedding anniversary as well.
Yep, and this year we’re elated to be celebrating year number seven, and still happily going strong!
In addition to a special dinner for just the two of us on our anniversary, our holiday traditions are usually a big family dinner on Christmas, and on New Years Eve we cook and ring in the festivities with a handful of dear friends.
And of course these celebrations wouldn’t be complete without some favorite wines!
Celebrating with wine during the holidays has always been a tradition for our family. It’s a wonderful experience to be able to toast as a special “thanks” to the good things that happened throughout the year, as well as hope for continued blessings, all while surrounded by loved ones and cheer.
This year we’re delighted to partner with Francis Ford Coppola Winery to create a new holiday tradition for our family by celebrating these enchanting occasions with their Votre Santé wines. And it’s perfect too given the meaning of “a votre santé,” is “to your health,” a toast Francis’s paternal grandmother shared many times. In fact, it is this toast that inspired the names of these special wines.
Designing Your Celebration Style
For me, and for Fab You Bliss, another tradition we love to incorporate in our gatherings is style. So whether you’re putting together a holiday party, or perhaps its your wedding, be sure you enjoy your Votre Santé wines in chic surroundings by creating a seasonal color palette and simple details, even for the smallest of gatherings.
For the above dinner I used a palette of ivory, olive green, rich red and a touch of gold that was carried through from the plates to the flowers to the hand-drawn place cards.
Votre Santé wines offer a great bargain that should pair well with lots of different dishes, and of course, create a wonderful new tradition for you and your family for the holidays and all year long!
Start your new holiday traditions and share a bottle of our favorite Vontre Santé wine with your friends or family.
