We made it to Day Twelve or our 12 Day of Christmas - Hosting Tips! Thanks for following along, and we hope you took some tips to incorporate into your own parties as a host and/or a guest!
For this last post, we’ve got six easy last-minute ways to make your home feel more festive, without spending a lot:
Poinsettia - a traditional symbol of Christmas. These flowers are great because they last a long time, with different sizes they can take up as much or as little space that you need to fill, and finally the are available in red, white, peach, and pink so you should be able to find one to suit your style.
Candles - doesn’t matter how you put them out, they always add to the ambiance. Suggestion would be to pick up a variety of shaped vessels from the dollar store, if you don’t already have some, and create a little display on a table. When picking up candles, consider clean burning candles that won’t add toxins to your home. Candles made with soy, beeswax, coconut wax, and vegetable-wax would be some of your best options.
Bowl of Christmas tree ball ornaments - this is so very easy! Choose some Christmas balls that are simple, perhaps two or three solid colours that you like together, and put them into a glass bowl, or large vase. Voila!
Fresh flowers plus some evergreen branches - Buy a bouquet of flowers in the colour that suits your other decor and style, along with a few branches of evergreens. I like to buy one large bouquet and break up into smaller ones around the house.
Plate of Christmas baking - put your baking on a lovely platter and it will instantly feel festive!
Glass, mason jar, or a bowl of candy canes - this is super inexpensive and easy! If you want to dress it up even more, add a bow to the mason jar with some evergreens in the middle.
