The holidays are right around the corner, which means entertaining is a must. Sometimes a little interior design help may be necessary when hosting your loved ones. Don’t prep for your holiday gatherings without reading this first. These are what the experts are saying!

Arrange Your Food In A Tasteful Way.  

Carry your holiday theme on to the culinary display. Try using color-coordinated serving dishes, decorative figures or dimensional platters. This will be sure to catch the eye of your guests! 

Use Noticeable Yet, Elegant, Dining Settings.

An assortment of table decoratives, in different sizes, creates a sense of elegance without interrupting the communication of your guests. By placing smaller table items in between seat settings you allow comfortable-conversation to occur amongst the beauty of your table display. Adding in small flower arrangements or single candle placements will bring warmth back into your setting. Glam up your table with a beautiful silverware selection or matching charger plates.

Dress Up The Kitchen.

Follow through with the design of your home whether traditional or modern and incorporate holiday touches to your kitchen. Make use of your counters, kitchen island or breakfast nook. But keep it simple here, as you’ll likely need the extra space during the holidays. 

Set The Mood With Accessories.

For instance, if going for a warm and fuzzy vibe, pay attention to candles, big throws and accent rugs. Use these festive items to layer over your normal everyday decor. Living room and elsewhere. 

Provide Enough Seating. 

Always ensure the right amount of seating options when entertaining. A comfortable array of areas to chat, during a cocktail/hors d’oeuvre hour, is crucial when welcoming your guests. The placing of side tables and a large centered coffee table allow for added convenience. 

Don’t Forget Those “Behind The Scenes.”

It may be common to miss those special bathroom touches, but chances are, the bathroom will be a happening spot. Make this place just as welcoming to your guests with small gestures. A vanity flower arrangement -- seasonal scented hand soap or candle -- matching counter containers. The key is to remember the little things here.
