New Guys In Town

Need a new place to hang out this fall? Prohibition is the new hot spot that has just opened up in the Galleria area. They, of course, stopped by High Fashion Home to furnish their interior for this upscale location. Don’t worry about the alcohol, they have plenty. Specializing in 1920’s style cocktails with a modern twist is a great way to change up your nights. Plus, you get to relax on cool furniture, who wouldn’t want that!



The entrance is nice and simple. Once you see the inside you won’t want to pass it up.

Cozy bar that you and your friends can mingle at.

Celebrate The New Year With A Cocktail Party

New Years Eve is just around the corner and it is time to gather with friends and family to celebrate. Why not have a cocktail party? This is a great way to get everyone together. All you need to do is plan out how everything will work out for this special occasion. Let’s think about what your decor will be…


You don’t need to go to the store and purchase a ton of things. Try and see what you can use that you already have. On Martha Stewart’s website she showed ways to create streamer decorations with leftover holiday paper shown below. Click on the photo below to view instructions.

Pick a color and use it as your theme. Make everyone wear that certain color to make it interesting. The room below uses a dazzling purple hue and the decor is very festive.

Now, nothing is a New Year’s party without wine or champagne! It’s always nice to provide your guest with something new that they may not have tried before. There are billions of drink combination that you can indulge in. Don’t hold back, be the amazing host that you are! Here is a few I found to keep the party going.
Bellini

Ingredients:
2 oz peach juice or peach puree
4 oz Champagne
Preparation:
1) Pour the peach juice or peach puree into a Champagne flute.
2) Slowly add the Champagne.

Rose Berry Bliss

Ingredients: 
1 bottle Clos du Bois Rosé, chilled 
1 bag frozen blueberries 
1 container frozen pink lemonade 
1 liter lemon-lime soda 
blueberries for garnish
Preparation:  
1) In a large pitcher, mix the Clos du Bois Rosé, antioxidant-rich frozen blueberries and frozen pink lemonade together. 
2) Allow the flavors to marry in the refrigerator for an hour. 
3) Top with lemon-lime soda. 

The last thing you need to arrange before the night begins is some delicious and appetizing food. What kind of food should you cater for your guest? Nothing to large, go for bite size pieces that look like you took some time to make. The food will show your guest your appreciation for them joining you on that night. Anything dipped in chocolate always seems to be a hit. Try this recipe.

 Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Ingredients:
16oz milk chocolate chip
2 tablespoons shortening
1 lbs fresh strawberries with leaves
Directions:
1) Insert toothpicks into the tops of the strawberries. 
2) In a double boiler, melt the chocolate and shortening, stirring occasionally until smooth. Holding them by the toothpicks, dip the strawberries into the chocolate mixture. 
3) Turn the strawberries upside down and insert the toothpick into styrofoam for the chocolate to cool.

If you need some extra seating or decor to make your night special, remember that High Fashion Fabrics carry’s an array of rental items for your party.

Jerry’s Amazing Adventure!!

HFGuy recently came back from a tour of Europe and Jerry, the High Fashion Home bag (not me!! grrr!), was able to accompany him throughout. They visited Rome, London, France, and Barcelona and took pictures while sight seeing, which can be seen on our Twitter account! So head over there, get a free account, and start following us (fyi, you get updates via our twitter of when our blog is updated).

Nate Burkus’ Farewell

For those of you who haven’t heard, Nate Burkus recently appeared on Oprah for his final appearance on her show (boo!). He’s heading to New York because he is the next person to have been touched by the “Oprah Factor” and will now get his own show (hooray!). Berkus became a main staple on Winfrey’s show after redecorating a small studio apartment into a lavish, multi-functional space.


I’m a huge fan of Nate Burkus, not only because he’s a little cutie but, because he has a gift to turn any room into a work of art. If you guys didn’t see the show, his tip for small areas is to place large items into the space so that you’re not reminded of its size.
