WEEKEND AT HOME / 94

there’s something so dreamy about a bright white bedroom. it’s kinda of like sleeping in the clouds. i love the idea of a clean slate in the bedroom, and it’s especially on my mind around the new year. the fresh start of the year always has me wanting to refresh everything. i don’t know if i could go fully minimal white, but it exudes such a peaceful calm. here’s some white bedroom inspiration for you! – erika

CHAMPAGNE PUNCH!

i just finished a week of antibiotics for strep and i’m so looking forward to being able to have an evening cocktail again. i’m generally not a huge champagne fan but there is something about the holidays that makes me want to have bubbles in everything. i think serving punch is both festive and practical for holiday entertaining as it allows for you to relax and let people refill their glasses on their own timing instead of trying to peer in everyones drink all night and see if they need it freshened up. this one was made with champagne, ginger ale and pureed cherries, but you could use any frozen berry instead. i think blackberries would be nice.  also, i wouldn’t worry too much about the quality of the champagne you use as it’s going to be masked by the other ingredients. – joanie

Champagne punch
what you’ll need
servings: fills a punch bowl, i’d say serves 15-20
• 3 bottles of champagne, sparking wine or Prosecco
• 5 cups ginger ale
• 2 cups frozen berry of your choice blended with 1 cup water on high for at least 1 minute
• sprigs of fresh rosemary

• assemble the punch right before serving by placing ice cubes in your punch bowl, and pouring the champagne, ginger ale and pureed fruit on top, mix a few times and serve!

we made fancy ice cubes for our punch which is a fun and colorful addition and takes very little time, just a bit of foresight. place whole berries and fresh herbs (mint and rosemary are great!) in ice cube trays. fill with water and freeze over night!
