Simple steps for a warm holiday gathering
The holidays are here, and whether your style tends to be more traditional or more minimal, these three parts are essential to seasonal gatherings.
Home fragrance goes a long way in making your home feel comfortable and inviting. Whether you prefer to use an aromatherapy diffuser, light a candle, or create a simmering potpourri on the stove, bring in the warmth of the season with scents of cranberries, orange, clove, and cinnamon.
One must for entertaining is having small bites available to taste in between lively conversation. A cheese plate is simply put together using two to three cheeses. We recommend something sharp, something fresh, and something creamy for variety. Pair the cheeses with crusty bread, crackers, nuts, and dried or fresh fruit.
When hosting a holiday gathering, the table is often the primary focus. Setting the table is similar to putting together a room. Thoughtfulness in choosing pieces goes a long way. It is entirely possible to put together an elegant and minimal tablescape using just a few elements. Plates act as the grounding element, while glassware and flatware are the supporting statement-makers. Linen napkins are the perfect way to introduce color and texture into an otherwise monochromatic tablescape. Seasonal greenery brings the outdoors inside and lends freshness to the scene.
We hope these few suggestions will help you put together a fun party with the ones you love most. After all, it is spending time with those we love that is the most important thing of all.
