The holiday season is fast approaching and no doubt your calendar is filling up with festive dinners, celebrating the season with friends. If you’re planning to be on the hosting end, here are the Top 4 Overlooked Essentials for a Fabulous Holiday Gathering.
- Make your guests feel welcome with a signature beverage to toast to a happy, healthy holiday. Display your stemware, ice bucket and pre-mixed signature drink on a bar cart, where guests can help themselves through out the evening.
- Whether you’re hosting for another couple or for a group of 10, it’s helpful to set out name cards at each place setting. Take away the guessing game during that slightly awkward moment when everyone is called to the dinner table.
- Wow your guests not only with your culinary skills, but also with a stunner of a tablescape. Play with differing heights, layers, textures and colours. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box and be bold! Illuminate your table décor with candle light or a battery operated string of lights for instant sparkle.
- Thank your guests for sharing in your special evening with a token of love. Wrapped to perfection, send your guests home with a store bought or homemade gift that will bring warm thoughts of friendship every time it’s used.
Wishing you all a delightful holiday season…designer-style!
