With all your holiday shopping (hopefully) sorted, its time to start to bringing guests into your home. Hosting a party can be daunting but with the right styling, you can create a beautiful setting for those memorable nights with family and friends.
This year’s colour scheme for the holidays may surprise you. Instead of the traditional Christmas colours of red and dark green, bright hues like deep blue and lime green will provide a gorgeous palette for your parties. Pops of these colours will work for both indoor and outdoor parties, while giving an elegant feel to any space. Adding metallic splashes in your setting will only enhance this colour scheme by bringing in an urban element.
Holiday parties are not complete with holiday feasts. Make a statement at your dinner table by mixing and matching glassware or tableware. An eclectic range of items provide the perfect conversation starter among your guests.
While it is tempting to throw together a random assortment of items, achieving the perfect mixture of mismatched items is tricky! You want to have a certain je ne sais quoi to your styling but you don’t want it to seem forced. Introduce small, yet distinct, features into your tableware that add texture.
However, simplicity never goes out of style. For more formal occasions, consider investing in high-quality items that will stand the test of time. Excellent cutlery and durable glassware are essentials for any host because they will withstand any number of parties. Plus, these classic items will match any new additions you introduce to your tableware.
