BlogHer 2010: A Sneak Peek at Hallmark's 2010 Holiday Products

Anyone who knows me is well-aware that Christmas is my favorite time of the year! That is why I was extremely excited to attend the Hallmark "Christmas in August" party during BlogHer 2010.

The party took place in the Martinelli Penthouse of the Buckingham Hotel in New York City. The terrace was just breathtaking, as was the view of the city and Central Park. The entire penthouse was decorated for the Holidays, which made everyone forget that we were in the midst of a hot and humid summer.

I hope you'll enjoy these photos, which give you a sneak peek of what's to come from Hallmark for Christmas and Hanukkah this year. I wish I had taken a photo of the dining area first. It was decorated so cheerfully for the guests to decorate sugar cookies. Once the cookie-decorating fun began, it was too late to capture the beautiful display.

Thank you to Catch the Moment Photo Plus for taking a holiday portrait of me (in my Shabby Apple dress) with "Nick" . . .

Thank you to Hallmark for hosting this wonderful event with delicious food and excellent company.
