    I will not be hosting a Holiday party this year, but I know I will be going to some! I plan on making fun Christmas themed cocktails I have found on pinterest!

    Not hosting one but going to a few! I always bring gingersnaps… so delicious and they just taste like the holidays :)

    We have some friends who live 6 hours away and who have 8 kids coming for Thanksgiving. I'm actually not sure yet where they will all sleep! Also, my parents who live 3 hours away will be coming for Christmas. I'm also hoping to host a "White Christmas" girl's party, where we watch the movie and drink tea and eat yummy food.

    I hope to find time to host a small Thanksgiving dinner for my closest friends before we leave college for our Thanksgiving break. For the Christmas holidays, my family will be hosting some extended family from out of the country! These pillows would make for a perfect backdrop. In all honesty, throw pillows, and throws, are some of my favorite things; especially these knitted ones. I just can't afford them as a college student! I've always said – I'll know I've made it when I can finally start shopping for my home at Pottery Barn. Thanks for hosting this giveaway Pottery Barn and HGTV!

    I'm not hosting, but I'd love to take one of these cute pillows to the person who is hosting!

  7. Susan P. says:

    I am not having a holiday party this year but we are going to a couple of parties.

  8. Kim Henrichs says:

    We're hosting a pre-Thanksgiving get together for a bunch of friends who do not have anywhere to go for Thanksgiving dinner. Can't wait! And those pillows are so gorgeous!!!

    No hosting in this home although I should consider it.
