The holidays may seem a little different this year, but we’re doing everything to make the season at home even more special. From the decor to the playlist and cocktails, we’re here to make you happy. Read on for Amber’s party decorating tips and tricks to make your home the vacation getaway you’ve always dreamed of.
Small touches can go a long way in making your space festive. Style up your surfaces (think mantel, cabinet, side table, etc.!) With accents like taper candles, rustic bells, greenery, and miniature trees to instantly create a holiday vibe. The little things add up to create a tasteful winter wonderland in no time.
CONSIDER COLOR AND TEXTURE
Rather than going over the top with strictly seasonal decor, think of the everyday pieces you already own, but in heavier textures and a more moody color palette reminiscent of winter. Think rusty textiles, vintage terra-cotta containers, woven accents, and luxe mohair throws to bring in the spirits season. Individual items like these can be styled and redesigned throughout the year.
BRING THE OUTDOORS
Garlands, wreaths, and greenery are your best friends when it comes to decorating for the holidays. Not only do they smell amazing, but they are beautiful and have a huge impact in any space. Think outside the box and put some greenery in unexpected places, like a wreath in the kitchen or a garland on the table or framing a door. Stop at your local flower market and look for bushels in a single variety of festive colors and unique garlands made from eucalyptus or magnolia leaves. Pro tip: Ask your local florist for dried flower wreaths for a more durable option!
IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS
It’s the little things that make all the difference. Once you’ve decorated, take a step back and consider the little details that add up to make an impact. A pearl garland here or sparkling lights there will not go unnoticed.
MOUNT THE TUNES
Now that you’ve visually decorated your space, it’s time to enjoy the fruits of your labor. There’s no better way to get into the spirit of things than to spot jams … and don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with a vacation playlist for you on Spotify!
MIX A DRINK
What are the holidays without a little festive cocktail? We have concocted a delicious maple bourbon drink to enjoy with your tunes. Happy merry and congratulations to the season!
