Portland Event Guide: December 2015

happy holidays from
the paper airplane! 

Portland is decking its halls and all is beginning to look merry and bright. (Case in point: Zoo Lights, The Grotto, and Peacock Lane.)
Whether your idea of celebrating the holidays is dressing to the nines for holiday tea at The Heathman, laughing off your Christmas cookies at a comedy by Portland Center Stage, or dancing all the way to 2016 at December to Remember,
there's a little bit of something for everyone this month in the Rose City. 


Holiday Tea at The Heathman | Christmas tree, teas, and all.

FOOD & DRINK: PINKIES UP

Now - January 3rd, Call restaurant for reservations, The Heathman

'Tis the season to dress up and cozy in for an afternoon by the roaring fire with cups on cups of tea and delicious small bites. This year was (surprise!) my first holiday tea, and I had so much fun living out my Downton Abbey fantasies at The Heathman while catching up with fellow Portland bloggers. The Dowager Countess would most definitely approve. 

*Thank you to The Heathman for generously hosting our blogger Holiday Tea. Read the full review at Love, Rachel.
