Desserts + Onesies: Holiday Moments w/ Capital One
This post was created in partnership with Capital One
December is my favorite time of the year. Not only is it my birthday month, but I also get to celebrate Christmas, Hanukah and New Years with my family and friends. It's a month full of presents, celebration, travel and sometimes even snow. While it's fun to get lost in the frenzy of shopping and gift-giving during the holiday season, it's just as important to me to spend time with loved ones and share experiences centered around great food. I've partnered with Capital One to let you know about their Savor℠ Card and why it's the perfect credit card for special moments like this. Capital One's Savor card rewards people with unlimited 3% cash back on dining, 2% on groceries and 1% on all other purchases. Click here to learn more!
This year, I decided to start a new tradition. To celebrate the first snow of the season, I threw a Holiday Onesie Dessert Party. I went around the city picking out some of my favorite baked goods and invited my extended family and friends over to stuff their faces and celebrate one another. The only requirement was to show up hungry and dressed in a holiday-themed onesie.
Before the guests arrived, I threw on my onesie and set the table with candles, lights, winter decorations and most importantly, the food. I got everything I could think of - cookies, cupcakes, s'mores bars, and even a Christmas tree made up of 100 holiday-flavored macarons.
The party was a blast! I swear everyone is in a better mood while wearing a onesie. We talked, laughed, ate and started a tradition that I will definitely be repeating next year. We ended the night by watching a holiday movie and sipping on hot chocolate.
Capital One's Savor Card is about creating memories around food. Not only did I get 3% cash back on everything I bought, but I also got a chance to bring everyone together for the holidays. We created memories and traditions that we will cherish forever and are already talking about next year's dessert party. The Savor card gives Capital One customers, like me, an even more rewarding way to enjoy moments like these.
