Be festive this holiday season and throw a fête that’ll have your guests fa-la-la-la-la-ing all evening! Whether it’s a traditional get together with family or a spontaneous reason to gather your friends, here are 5 holiday party decorating ideas to make your Christmas brunch or holiday cookie exchange feel merry and bright!
Be inspired by Mother Nature
Bring a little of the outdoors inside; no, we’re not talking about the blustery winds and below zero temps! Incorporate berry branches into your tablescape or create an inspired centerpiece with pine branches, cedar, and pinecones! Grab some faux mistletoe and hang it in the doorway for some festive fun.
Break out the arts and crafts box
Get crafty this season with diy winter decorations! Between festive dinners and gifts for the kids, the holidays are an expensive time of the year! Use an oil-based permanent marker to dress up cheap white plates or create napkin rings out of toilet paper rolls and fabric scraps! Glue together two candy canes upside down to hold the place cards for dinner or the names of the dishes on the buffet line.
Deck the door with boughs of holly
Your front door is the first thing that guests will see when they arrive to the party! Place a wreath on your door or decorate the door so it looks like a giant gift! Have a white door? Make it into a snowman! Be traditional or creative! Feel free to leave the door decorated for the remainder of the year to spread joy throughout the season!
Incorporate non-traditional colors
Deep reds and hunter greens are always ideal for building a holiday aesthetic but that doesn’t mean that other color palettes are off limits. Decorate all white for a winter wonderland theme or play with a color scheme such as the combination of kelly green, baby blue and white. Don’t be afraid to let your personality shine and experiment with purple, turquoise and metallics!
