‘Tis the Season to Dine

When you are a mom, you never slow down.  The holidays are where we vamp up even more.  We are running around with those lists, and checking them twice and praying that no one get sick as there is too much to do always.  From the holiday shopping to the school functions, to the holiday entertaining, it just never ends.  Quite often while planning and entertaining, you can get lost in the stress and forget the most important reason why we do what we do, and that is to spend time with friends and our family.

There is absolutely nothing more important than spending the holidays with friends and family and relaxed.  When you live in New York City, you often make many adjustments to how you entertain and how many people you can entertain.  This is all due to dining space.  While the dining room is the center of American family traditions during the holiday season, not everyone has one.  In fact, the average New York City apartment is nearly half the size of the US, average.  So we were thrilled when we learned about Marie Callender’s opening up, #TheDiningRoom.

Guests have the opportunity to reserve the room for up to 15 guests, and what a perfect place to throw our own intimate holiday celebration with some of our closest friends.  There is nothing better than comfort food and good wine with your friends, so this holiday season we have decided to #SavorTheSeason with some of our favorite Moms, downtown in Soho.

There are 3 dining rooms to choose from and each of the rooms were designed and co-created by 3 different celebrities, Daphne Oz, Jennie Garth and Stacy London, so visually it is quite stunning.  But for us, the most important reason to venture to The Marie Callendar’s dining room this holiday season, is that all proceeds will be donated to Habitat for Humanity New York City.  There is nothing more important than giving back during the holiday season, so to be able to dine with friends and savor the most delicious comfort foods like pot pies and desserts and to give back simultaneously is just perfection.

From December 12 to 17, people can reserve a dining room to host a party for their friends and family. We are so excited to head downtown to #TheDiningRoom by Marie Callender’s and slow down and try to unplug for a little and #SavorTheSeason with our friends.
