The Holidays Have Arrived, Lets Get Decorating!
Well it’s official—it’s that time of the year again. Bring out your best china and crystal, the holidays are finally here!
Between dinner parties, gifts, and family trips, the holiday season always seems to speed by. That said, if you’ve been so busy that you’re running out of time to find the perfect decorations for your party, you’ve come to the right place.
We compiled a list of the four best ways to create a classic and elegant aesthetic for your home.
1. Don’t Be Afraid To Be Different
We know—most holiday decorations out there just stick with the safe green and red color scheme that you always see. Don’t get us wrong, those colors are classic for a reason, but you shouldn’t be afraid to stray away from them. Trust us, even if you don’t use red and green you can still remain in the holiday spirit. Instead, bring out the silver and gold to mix them with non traditional colors.
2. Bring Out the Fine China, Crystal, and Silverware
Fine China is a timeless choice, especially during the holidays. But don’t completely rely on the China stealing the show! China is only one element of your table spread. Before you start planning your table layout, consider the other elements first to make sure you’re on the right track: the centerpiece, placemats, napkins, napkin rings, serving dishes, and more. Don’t forget, a beautifully-set table brings a warm environment for friends and family to come together.
3. Your Tree Deserves Only The Best
The way you decorate your tree sets a tone for the rest of your decorations. Think about it: as your friends and family walk into your home this holiday season, the focal point will be the Christmas tree. When you’re planning the decorations for your tree, don’t stick with simple lights and ornaments. Elevate your tree by adding Baccarat crystal snowflakes and hand-painted Jay Strongwater ornaments.

4. It’s All in the Details
Presentation is key and your gift wrap matters. Picking out the perfect paper and ribbon not only adds emphasis to your other decorations, but it leaves a valuable impression on the person you’re giving them to. To make your gifts stand out above the rest, just remember two things, big beautiful bows and you can never have to much glitter and sparkles.
Don’t Forget to Enjoy Yourself
It’s so easy for us to get wrapped up in the planning and perfection that we can forget to actually enjoy ourselves. During your party or other festivities, never forget to take a deep breath and soak in the special energy around you. After all, the holidays are all about reconnecting with your loved ones and having some fun.
