My husband and I do not host big holiday gatherings.
Our events are small, intimate, and easy going.
Even still, there are some things that can really make or break a holiday get together.
While our events may be small, we want them to be successful.
When I received a BabbleBoxx full of items that help through the holidays, I had to share them with you.
Holiday Details Matter
Disclosure: This is a sponsored article between Fashion Beyond Forty and BabbleBoxx. I only write about brands and products I have personally tested and love.
Holiday Details Matter And Make A Difference:
Castello Knows Holiday Details Matter
Nothing says holidays like good food.
I am a huge fan of a great cheese board.
You have probably seen me write about them in the past.
Castello cheese is a brand I purchase regularly.
Three types of Castello cheese were included in my BabbleBoxx, lucky me!
Castello Aged Havarti
Castello Traditional Danish Blue
I already knew Castello makes some of the tastiest cheese.
What I was not aware of however that Castello has a cheese board builder tool!
You have to try it out.
Just answer a few easy questions.
The Cheese Board Builder creates the perfect spread based on your preferences and dietary restrictions.
It not only tells you which Castello cheese you would prefer but recommends other delicious ideas to incorporate into your board.
When I used the tool it even recommended merlot to be served with my spread.
They really know me.
I will be using the cheese board builder tool this holiday season and will be enjoying Castello gourmet cheese.
Cracker Barrell One Of My Favorite Shops For Those Holiday Details That Matter
If you haven’t shopped the Cracker Barrell Old Country Store, you are missing out!
I can’t even explain to you all of the old world charms you will find there.
If you are looking for that very special and unique gift, shop here!
I received these cute Christmas milk bottles and appetizer picks.
The Christmas milk bottles are perfect for sitting next to the cookies left out for Santa this Christmas Eve.
These beautiful snowflake appetizer picks have already been joyfully used.
I created a small cheese and fruit tray using them with the Castello cheese.
Small Gatherings Still Deserve A Touch Of Elegance Because Holiday Details Matter.
It’s the details like these snowflake appetizer picks that truly make a difference.
They are simply so pretty and you can find them in the Old Country Store.
Prices in the Cracker Barrell Old Country Store are already excellent but you can get a special discount.

Indeed, Holiday Details Matter, Like Discounts!
Speaking of food, we all do plenty of cooking during the holidays.
I have always used PAM Cooking Spray.
What I did not know is that PAM now has an alternative to aerosol!
I received two different PAM non-aerosol superior non-stick sprays to test out.
My favorite Olive Oil and my second favorite Canola Oil.
Both are healthy oils for cooking.
I found that the non-aerosol sprays worked the same as my tested and true aerosol.
There are no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.
I found this type of pump spray helps control how much is used with no overspray.
It’s also reduced fat and calorie which is a huge plus.
Also if you download the ibotta app you earn cash back on your purchase of PAM Spray Pump.
During the holidays it is so important that we do not forget our pets.
Being an animal advocate it is important to me that we understand that holidays can also add stress to our fur friends.
With guests coming and going they need extra TLC.
Make sure they have a healthy diet and remain on their regular schedule.
Wellness Core Petfood is a wholesome high protein diet for your dog.
I have written about Wellness before and recommend it as a 100% grain-free recipe for pets.
It has freeze dried raw bites and is 100% meat with no fillers.
My dogs go crazy for it!
Because Our Pets And Holiday Details Matter We Need To Give More!
WHIMZEES Daily Dental Chews offer all natural ingredients.
Only six primary ingredients, nothing artificial.
Dental care is vital for healthy pets and our pets just think Whimzees are a delicious treat!
For us, it gives our pets fresh breath and promotes gum health and healthy teeth.
Both of my dogs love WHIMZEES chews.
Below you can see Lyla chowing away on one!
No, it’s not a pretty sight.
My dog loving readers know how hard it is to get a pretty photo of a dog with a delicious treat!
I recommend WHIMZEES Dental Chews to all dog parents.
So happy to have been sent some for my dogs to try.
We All Know That When It Comes To Holiday Details Decor Is A Must!
Even if your gathering is small, like mine, you want to evoke a happy holiday spirit!
I found Christmas Central to be my one stop shop for all my holiday décor needs.
They have artificial Christmas trees, lighting, and so much more.
I have wanted a lovely holiday wreath for my front door for ages.
There are so many to choose from at Holiday Central!
I have it narrowed down to four:
Which is your favorite?
I think I am leaning toward the one on the lower right.
It’s called Sugared Purple and Red Pine Cone.
It gives me that true woodland feeling I adore and it’s only $15.99!
As you can see, their prices are amazing!
You have to check Holiday Central for all your holiday décor needs.
