Yes, thats real snow outside and, yes, the thermometer reads 3 degrees. So, brrrrrr! Can you let the cold stop you? No way! The holiday celebrations must go on! Welcoming special guests to your home for a fun event can be done in junky holiday style. Start with your wine glasses and beverage of choice.
Add a metal rotating stand that was probably used as a store display in its previous life. If you have those little glass charms used for wine glasses, this is good way to display them for your guests. It would be fun to make a small sign to insert in the top to welcome your guests, but it looks great either way!
If you know who is attending, here is another option for making your guests feel welcome. Use these chalkboard napkin holders as drink markers. (I started filling in the names of people on the guest list. If you dont see your name, dont worry! I just havent received your RSVP!) Then use vintage clothespins to attach them to the metal stand. Easy, peasy junk solutions! 
Last, but not least, make your beverage center mobile by placing the items on a vintage medical/dental stand. Include a single white linen napkin underneath. Now, you are set! Seriously, it takes minutes to do!

Welcome to Another
Junky Holiday Project!

This junky holiday idea is all about welcoming your best gal-pals over for an evening or a weekend. It's all about getting the girls together for a long-overdue talk-fest by the fire with champagne, wine, hot mulled cider, or whatever your fancy might be. If the weather outside is frightful, don't be discouraged! That's what a cozy girls' night in is for! Dive into those closets, basements, attics, and garages to find the best junk treasures for making girls' night in extra special. As always, your junk-inspired holiday can be simple, casual, and elegant!

Okay, ladies? Who is coming over for "girls' night in?" RSVP by leaving a comment!

Although Amy had many most excellent projects to choose from, I selected the "Girl's Night In" project as her best of 2009. OK, it came from late in 2008. You caught me I cheated a little bit. Hahaha! First of all I love entertaining with junk and this girl knows how to do it up right. I also adore industrial elements and Amy has her own special spin when working with this genre of junk. She has a gift for transforming what might seem to some as hard, cold junk into something warm, inviting, and elegant. The softer side of industrial as I like to call it. Amy is a special gift to all of us here at JUNKMARket Style. I hope you have all enjoyed Amy's talents as much as I have. Thank you so much Amy. Here's to you...Cheers!

Be Well,
