Dear Santa, this year all I want for Christmas is nice shoes! Each year, we celebrate the holidays in style. COVID-19 may make decorating the Christmas tree, caroling and Secret Santa less exciting this year. Twinspirational focused on creative ways to enjoy everyday moments and holidays with COVID-19 rules in mind. We are partnering with Ally Shoes to give our readers three ways to safely celebrate the holidays.
We met Ally Shoes’ Founder and CEO, Samantha Dong, back in February. Ally is known for designing sleek, pain-free heels for women. Samantha teamed up designer, Sara Jaramillo, and podiatric expert, Dr. Roxann Clarke, to create stylish heels for women in a broad range of sizes and widths. Ally makes luxury footwear more accessible through its direct to consumer business model.
3 Ideas to Safely Celebrate the Holidays
This year, you don’t have to miss out on the fun of holiday season. You can host chic in-person gatherings with your immediate household or host larger, informal virtual parties.
1.) Merry Flocking Christmas Brunch
This year, ask your household to jingle and flamingle for Christmas brunch.
- Incorporate various shades of pink, white, silver and green into the table decor
- Add a pink tablecloth, layer a white faux fur table runner and add green napkins
- Find flamingo themed bowls, plates, straws and toothpicks
- Include yogurt parfaits, mixed fruit and scrambled eggs
- Serve pink lemonade or grapefruit juice in champagne flutes. Spike with Prosecco for the adults
- Wear a pink party dress and slip on Ally Shoes’ black leather pumps to complete your look
