With the holiday season upon us, we’ve headed into one of the busiest months of the year. It’s a wonderful season to celebrate with family and friends, but with non-stop schedules, it can also be a stressful time to be a host. Everyday life doesn’t stop for the holidays, so when I find myself with guests on the way, laundry in the dryer to be folded, and, perhaps, an angelic little puppy chewing everything he shouldn’t, I need ways not only to entertain effortlessly, but to look stylish doing so. A great watch has always been my favorite way to accessorize an outfit, and cheese boards are my “go-to” choice whether I’m serving a crowd, or an intimate gathering of friends. Today, I’m going to show you how to create the perfect cheese board, and will be featuring JORD’s designer wood watches for unique and sophisticated holiday style.
As I’ve mentioned several times before on the blog, I love pieces crafted from wood grains. Whether it’s a beautiful serving bowl, furniture, or jewelry, wood provides some of nature’s most interesting art. When I was contacted by JORD to feature one of their watches on Striped Spatula, I was delighted. I chose the Cora series watch in Koa (a wood endemic to Hawaii), with a rose gold face, and I’ve already gotten so many compliments wearing it. Most watches on the market aren’t made of wood, so it’s a standout piece that really garners attention on the wrist. I love that it’s casual enough to wear with a pair of jeans and a sweater, but at the same time, elegant with a dress for a holiday party. As a part of this post, JORD has generously offered Striped Spatula readers a $25 e-gift code toward the purchase of one of their watches.
