5 Tips to Perfect Your Holiday Entertaining
With the Holiday season in full swing, busting out Justin Bieber’s holiday album isn’t the only thing we’re doing to celebrate. Holiday parties are the first thing that top our list. No matter if they’ve been nice or naughty, your loved ones deserve a wonderful holiday party that keeps them dancing well into the night. So, grab your pen and add a few of these holiday entertaining musts to your holiday shopping list.
- Holiday Decorations
A party isn’t a party without a proper set of decorations. Everyone loves a theme, and the holidays make party decorating even easier. Deck out your home with your favorite decorations that have been stored away all year long. However, don’t forget to add in a few details to put your party over the top. We love this set of Scandinavian wood houses from World Market. The tiny details and LED lighting put a modernized twist on these classic holiday decorations.
- Plates, Cups, Cutlery, Oh My!
Table decorations are one of our favorite parts of entertaining during the holiday season. From one-of-a-kind centerpieces to the tiniest details like name cards, you can make your table settings the talk of the town. This season think minimalist. Don’t overcrowd your table with oversized decorations. Keep things bright with white dinnerware and metallic accents.

*Tip: Add a few unique surprises like greenery or cut-outs on top of the gift to make it extra special.
