Christmas Series: Desert Tables

My favorite part of hosting a chic party has to be the desert table. It’s fun, usually the center of attention + can be themed to match whatever occasion you’re wanting to create. In our case, we are celebrating Christmas (YAY) so I’ve shared some desert table inspiration in preparation for this holiday season.

Christmas Series: Holiday Decor

I’ve shared this holiday decor guide to inspire your Christmas creativity for a trend-setting home for the holidays. Here are some of my top picks for holiday decor. This year I’m loving a mix of sophisticated + traditional decor to achieve a festive look at home.

One of the easiest ways to incorporate a seasonal theme is by adding accessories. Mixing non-traditional colors like golds, pinks + blues are a must and can be used in accent pillows, vases, candles or decorative bowls filled with ornament in your chosen colors. Be creative + have fun in the process!

1. Use Vases + Cake Stands To Display Ornaments
