When decorating for your Christmas parties, it’s the time to pull out all the stops to get that festive Christmas party look. You can be classy with a little bit of sassiness thrown in. Now is the time to bring out all those baubles, bangles, and bows. Here are some decorating ideas to achieve the best Christmas party look ever.
Poinsettias! Now is the time to do some decorating with those ever popular Christmas poinsettias. Use them for table decorations, on either side of your fireplace mantel and even at the foot of an open stairway. They do come in different colors, so if you think red is too boring, try decorating with pink or white poinsettias. Stick some of those little flameless tea light candles in the poinsettia planters to create a little flicker of light within the plants.
Garland! Use this everywhere to create that Christmas party ambiance when decorating. Hang it above doorways, over your window curtain valances, on stairway banisters, on a bench or shelf in the foyer etc. A lot of garland is available with lights, which even makes it more holiday friendly. Intertwine it among your other holiday decorations for the best Christmas party look ever.
Prelit topiary and mini Christmas trees in urns and planters. What a way to welcome your guests with these little prelit trees lining a path or driveway. Place a pair on your front porch flanking the front door or on either side of the hearth. Add a wreath to that front door and some velvet bows wrapped around the tree containers and you will have created a Christmas party look that your guests will be envious of.
Candles, candles everywhere. You can never have too many candles in your home when decorating for those Christmas parties. Use them in centerpieces, in wall sconces, in the bathroom and powder room, on shelves and mantels or wherever you want that holiday candle glow. Candles come in different scents to help give your home the aroma of the holidays. Keep safety precautions in mind when using candles to decorate for that Christmas party and you can also opt for the flameless type candles, which are very “real” looking.
Christmas linens and tableware! Now is the time to bring out all those stored away Christmas tablecloths, quilts, throws, bath and kitchen towels, china and anything else that says it’s Christmas time. Decorate those buffet and dining tables with all the colors of Christmas. A Christmas centerpiece made with a hurricane candle set amongst those elegant Christmas linens makes a perfect Christmas party table.
All these items that will help you create the best Christmas party look ever are readily available at your local stores that sell Christmas decorations like Walmart, Target, Kmart and nurseries and flower shops. Online stores like QVC, and HSN also carry nice assortments of many Christmas decorations and other items to help you achieve that just right Christmas party look.
