STYLING YOUR HOLIDAY PARTY

How to elevate your next gathering

BY: MACKENZIE GOODMAN | DECEMBER 2018

The days can really start to blend together at the end of the year.

With event after event, and occasion after occasion, it’s hard to slow down and find a moment to breathe. You probably don’t even have time to be reading this blog post right now. So, with free time running scarce, we thought we’d share some tips on how to easily and quickly elevate your holiday get-togethers. No stress-induced meltdowns required.



DIY DECORATING


SIMPLE OPTION: Not big on pomp and frills? Easy, just sit back and let the food be the star.

ELEVATED OPTION: Mix and match different textured napkins, placemats, and table runners for a cozy and stylish look.

EASY COLOR POPS


SIMPLE OPTION: Stick to white tableware for a classic a look. 

ELEVATED OPTION: Play with colored and patterned bowls, plates, and serving platters. Limit yourself to one color family if you're feeling apprehensive about getting too 'out there' with your overall look. 

PERFECTING THE PRESENTATION


SIMPLE OPTION: We’ve got you covered with the basics. All catering orders come with chafing dishes, sternos, plates, utensils, napkins, and a buffet set-up guide.

ELEVATED OPTION: Plate main items on self-serve platters and bowls, sauces in ramekins, and place a table setting out for each dinner guest.

LIGHTING IT UP


SIMPLE OPTION: Window light, fire light, or overhead light. Don’t overthink it if you’re happy with what you already have.

ELEVATED OPTION: There’s no easier cheat for creating a cozy and intimate evening than candles. Tea candles are cheap, easy to store and replace, and add the perfect amount of warmth to any gathering. You can even mix it up one step further by opting for colored or frosted glass instead of clear.
