Have Yourself a Preppy Little Christmas

For its December issue, Matchbook Magazine teamed up with Vineyard Vines (one of my favorite places to shop for my husband) to host a holiday party in the library of the historic Union League Club in New York City.  The result was a preptastic, tartan clad, fabulous holiday soirĂ©e. Among the stylish guests were bloggers The College Prepster, Design Darling, Corals and Cognacs, and Bows and Sequins. Here are some of the highlights...

Do you love tartan at Christmas as much as I do? I think it adds such a classic, sophisticated touch! For more tartan holiday ideas, check out this post from Chinoiserie Chic.  And click here for recipes, a classic Christmas playlist, and more pics from the Matchbook/Vineyard Vines party!
