With families growing and spreading out all over the GTA, the holidays mean lots of driving to and from holiday parties. But if you’re hosting celebrations this year, you get to stay put and welcome everyone into your new home this year. For many, hosting holiday celebrations for family and friends is a great honour, giving you a chance to show off your great entertaining skills with delicious food and beautiful décor. Here are some inspiring ways you can decorate your home for your upcoming holiday party:
Bringing the outdoors in with simple twigs like this is a great way to honour the season in your new home. Arrange your twigs in glass vase filled with pinecones and hang some crystal icicles on them for some holiday sparkle. Strategically positioning a candle just behind for warm glow or try inserting a cord of Christmas lights for a more uniform glow like this one here.
Sometimes bringing the outdoors into your new home doesn’t have to be so literal. Rather than using actual twigs, considering investing in some faux pre-lit trees which can be used both indoors and out. When using indoors, they look best against dark backdrops so contrasted against those dramatic wall papered or dark painted rooms in your new home, these lit-up twig trees look stunning.
If you’ve found yourself throwing some early parties this time of year and already have some empty bottles to work with in your new home, try making these fabulous Epsom salt and glitter bottles! For just the cost of a can of spray paint, a clustered grouping of bottles like this can really set a great mood for your next holiday gathering!
If you’re not too fond of extreme sparkle and shine for your new home, then you’ll love using burlap for your holiday décor. The charming and rustic look of burlap can be used in so many ways; as a tabletop runner, bow for your wreath, or delightful cut-out letters used to dress up a mirror.
