The holidays are just around the corner. It's time to deck your halls (and the rest of your home) with the festive spirit! Do you have all the supplies you need to host a smashing holiday gathering? If the answer is no, don't quake in your Poulaines just yet! Below, we have compiled 5 holiday entertaining ideas that will have all your guests feeling instantly in awe.
The Welcoming Fresh Winter Wreath
Entertaining begins when you hear that first doorbell. Why not make it a memorable experience by having your door decor be the conversation starter? Try the simple DIY wreath featured above in your home. It can be used indoors or outdoors and is perfect for infusing your home with a beautiful and bold pine scent!
What You'll Need:
1) A Twig Wreath (found at Amazon or Michael's).
2) Thin Green Wire (found at Michael's or The Dollar Store).
3) Bunch of Mixed Greenery (found at most grocery stores).
4 Easy Steps:
Step 1: Cut each branch to 4 inches in length.
Step 2: Insert branches into the twig wreath.
Step 3: Continue the process; securing the branches with wire as you go.
Step 4: Connect the pine cones (or ornaments) together using the wire and attach them to the wreath.
Tip: Hang the wreath and secure any loose or unruly pieces you see. Voila!
Scents for the Soul: Candles and Diffusers
Creating a holiday atmosphere can be achieved in more ways than one. Scents like spiced gingerbread, peppermint and cranberry instantly remind you of Christmas. Saje has some of the best products for putting your guests in the holiday mood! We love their Good Cheer diffuser blend collection, or their amazing Aroma Breeze Ultra Matte Merlot diffuser. If you prefer candles, check out Bath and Body Works for their fantastic holiday inspired scents.
Festive Feasts: Indulge In Experience
My Little Secrets
What better way to charm your dinner guests than treating them to a truly unique experience? As my mom would say, "it's the extra details that make the day a special occasion." Whether you are religious or not, the holidays signify family, generosity of spirit, gratitude and love. Make them count by bringing your loved ones together in style.
How adorable are these elegant inscribed "Joy"plates and woven circular place mats; not to mention the festive Moscow mule mugs, perfect for your holiday feast and signature holiday cocktail!
Chic Holiday Garland
We love garlands because they can be used for so many purposes. The garland featured above would look stunning as a table centrepiece, a mantle decoration, or, when woven together, as a fuss-free wreath. We also love this garland because it is not too holiday specific, meaning it could be repurposed throughout all of winter.
Snuggle up with Snugglers
What's more vital for a good holiday party than proper seating? This cozy Newman 3-Seater Sofa by Korson Furniture is one of our favourite seating options! Check it out in several different colours in the link above.
The No Buh-humbug Bar Cart
What's a holiday party without some eggnog or cranberry spritz, am I right? Incorporating a stylish bar cart into your entertainment space in a great way to keep those buh-humbugs at bay! Add some festive holly, mini decorative trees, a wreath, or some plushy festive fabrics to your display and you are sure to please (in more ways than one).
