"Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childhood days, recall the old man to the pleasures of his youth, and transport the traveller back to his fireside and quiet home." Charles Dickens
May we all keep the spirit of Christmas in our hearts year round.

In many of our client meetings of late the subject of the "bar" and location of said "bar" has been of  utmost importance. I have one client who wanted the bar in their bedroom (and NO that is not a morning bar). Another who suggested the master bath and yet another who talked of having one in not only the living room, but the dining room and also poolside. I think this just goes to show how important gracious entertaining is as the focal point of the ever so gracious home. I've always been a huge fan of the bar cart or the table top bar display- there is something about it- so very warm, welcoming and ever- ready for a party. It reeks of special occasion-ness and every day frivolity, just make sure that in your coterie of acquaintances you have at least one master mixologist! So cheers everyone - it's five o'clock somewhere!
