With the holiday season in full force, the Idea Specialists™ at luxury apartment community Collingwood Apartment Homes in Alpharetta, Georgia, are ready talk festivities!
Part of being party-ready means having a variety of gifts on hand, both for gracious hosts and games of Dirty Santa.
Want something utterly silly for a down-and-dirty $10 and under gift exchange? How about this tin of bacon-themed bandages from the Accoutrements Store on Amazon?
For something a little more sophisticated, you can pop down to The Ballog on Market Street and check out all their distinctive offerings from local, independent, and socially conscious artisans, like this lovely lavender Thistle Farms Room Spray crafted by women survivors—and, for your dog-loving friends, a Foggy Dog Squeaky Toy. (Of course the Idea Specialists™ had to mention that in particular because Collingwood Apartment Homes is such a pet-friendly place!)
When you get home from the party and want to snuggle up by the fire and sample some seasonal goodies, what better way to indulge than with Hot Chocolate Eggnog? The Idea Specialists™ found an easy recipe for it on Food.com. And they found a nice bottle of Hennessy VS on the bar cart, perfect for that little extra kick.
Don’t have a favorite non-alcoholic eggnog and aren’t up to making it from scratch this year? You can always rely on Southern Comfort, a New Orleans original. The company puts out two special seasonal products each year: Southern Comfort Egg Nog and Southern Comfort Vanilla Spice Egg Nog. Splash a little in your morning coffee for some extra yum!
Ready To Ring In 2023?
If you’re looking for a way to ring in the new year, make reservations now to enjoy an evening out at one of Awesome Alpharetta’s equally awesome restaurants (there are almost too many to pick from!). The Collingwood Apartment Homes Idea Specialists™ are thinking about Ocean & Acre on Halcyon Way because they never disappoint when it comes to special occasions—and their signature smoked meats and shareable seafood dishes will pair nicely with some special New Year’s Eve bubbly! Drunken Bangs Island Mussels for the table it shall be!
Or, get yourself ready to dance the night away at Roaring Social, Alpharetta’s own speakeasy (“hidden” behind the respectable storefront of RoSo Clothiers on Milton Avenue). General admission for the evening is $150 and includes an open bar, culinary delights, bowling, party favors—and, of course, a midnight champagne toast as December 31, 2022, rolls into January 1, 2023.
