HOSTING FOR THE HOLIDAYS

If you’re hosting a holiday party this season, I’m sharing a few of my tricks and favourite things that make hosting fun and easy! We usually do a white elephant party, have tons of appetizers and fun drinks. I love going on Pinterest to find DIYs, food and drink ideas (follow me here). Sharing more below…

TRIO SERVER // PARTY CRACKERS // CHEESEBOARD // MAGNOLIA BOWLS // WINE STOPPER // DRINK DISPENSER // BE MERRY BALLOON BANNER // BAR CART // PARTY SET WITH NAPKINS & PLATES // COASTERS // HOT CHOCOLATE // CANDLES

Fun/Easy Appetizers: I’ll be sharing more of these in a blogpost coming up, but I thought this one was so cute I had to share it! It’s a simple DIY of a rosemary-shaped wreath with cheese and olives. Simple and yet it’s the little details that add a special touch to your event. You also can’t go wrong with a charcuterie board on a pretty cheese board! 

Candles: Not only do these look pretty and smell good, they add the most beautiful ambient lighting that makes any space cozier! 

Bar Cart: A bar cart is always fun to style for a party and it has function! We don’t have one in our condo, but we do have a little breakfast nook counter that we use as our “bar space.” You can store bottles, glasses, bowls with garnishes (like lemons, limes, rosemary etc.), straws and more! I also love this one from Target

Tiered Tray // Plaid Mugs // Peppermint Stirrers // Hot Chocolate // Marshmallows 

Hot Chocolate Station: Whenever guests drop in or we host a party, this hot chocolate station is always a hit! We stock it with candy canes, marshmallows, chocolate stir sticks, treats and different types of hot cocoa! You can see how I put this one together here

Table Setting: Charger Plates // Snowflake Plate // Tree Plate
