Today I'm going to elaborate on a great idea from the High Rise Hostess blog - an Après-Ski Party for the Olympics. Now, I am not a very good skier. I just don't enjoy it very much, or really, any activity where my foot is all slippy-slidey. (Anyone want to analyze that?) It will probably come as no surprise, however, that I do enjoy après-ski, or "after ski"...the act of sitting around in your cute alpine clothing in front of a fire, warm drink in hand.
I know, you're shocked.
Anywho, check out High Rise Hostess for more city-style hostessing tips, and start planning your own après-ski! Here are four things to get you started...
