Holiday Entertaining with Italpasta


I love hosting people at our condo! Large gatherings, dinners, sleepovers... you'd be surprised at how many people we can fit in our tiny 600 square foot condo.

While every occasion is a delight for us, December is where everything comes full circle and we love to have intimate dinner parties with our friends to enjoy good food, drinks and conversation. It's also a great way to wrap up the year!
