Hey! Have yourself a sexy little Christmas

 Your Recipe for Romance

If things are a little Frosty and you want ‘Joy to the World’ ~ not  another Silent Night…

Oh, come on, all ye faithful and take note: here is the Christmas Recipe for romance for a party for two – no reservations.

The Romance Recipe must haves:

1. Candlelight – nothing says ambiance like votive candles flickering on table tops and throughout

2. Bubbles -Choose  Champagne or Proseca or Martinelli’s Sparkling cider or Perrier…

3. Music – Go Classic: Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Andrea Bocelli…Try Spotify….Need A Top 20 List?

4. Ambiance – Oh, Christmas tree? A $10 wreath from Trader Joe’s placed inside your home adds fragrance and instant atmosphere.

Three Easy Steps

1.) Shop

2.) Decorate and

3.) Prep the merry meal.


Today’s grocery stores are so one-stop shopping. At Mollie Stones you can buy the meal, the wine, the flowers, the tablecloth and matching napkins, a Christmas CD, party gifts, dessert and get your knives sharpened at the same time.

There is no reason to fuss – Go Thoreau and simplify, simplify, simplify…

Mable, Mable: Set the table the night before and be sure to have a simple centerpiece and candles. Fill a large glass bowl with brightly colored ornaments.

Silent night? If you want Joy to the World – get great music – default to the classics by getting the Christmas crooners: Frank Sinatra. Bing Crosby and Andrea Bocelli and, Santa baby, you’ll have a jingle- bell- rock and a merry little Christmas. (Top 100 Christmas Songs)
