Quick Tips to Elevate Your Holiday Party!

With Christmas less than a month away, it’s time to start planning those cozy Christmas parties. This year, we’re digging chic yet simple décor with seasonal pops of color and an assortment of glittering gold and silver accents.

Lay the foundation for your holiday party spread with a polyester tablecloth in a cheery red. Not only will this help your seasonal plateware pop, but a fabric tablecloth instantly elevates the scene.  Be sure to choose dishes that complement the occasion and your tablecloth. We love classic carnival glass, but any seasonally-colored dishes will do.

Next, consider the lighting for your party. Turning on the overhead lights may work for the office party, but if you want to set a cheerful holiday mood, consider these alternatives.

An LED backdrop curtain is a fabulous way to boost your lighting while adding the perfect pop of holiday cheer! You can set up one as an accent wall or artfully use multiple curtains to define different spaces in your party area.

If you have some dark corners or want to create some cozy nooks, opt for a trio of lanterns and cluster them aesthetically in those spaces. We love how gold lanterns look with little snippets of holly or garland on the loops and around the base for this particular scene.

Add in a few well-placed gold candle holders for extra glam and mood lighting around your space, and you’re ready to host!

It’s that easy to create a simple yet elegant holiday tablescape!
