Merry Joyful Happy Christmas. This holiday is a huge one for our family and we will be taking a couple days off to celebrate and enjoy it together. I’ll be instagraming and pinning when I have a quite moment, but I didn’t want to leave without sharing these three genius party tips for those of us that might be a little last-minuting the holidays. Each of these ideas will take only a few moments, and you most likely have the supplies on hand. Decorating has never been so simple; as it should be when Christmas is 48hrs away!
Tip One: For last minute decor grab all the colorful/vintage/pretty books around the house and stack them on the mantel. The festive collection brings a nod of tradition to the day and your guests will love thumbing through the titles as they mingle.
Tip Two: To0 late for a tree? Fill old coffee tins with sprigs of evergreen for a tabletop centerpiece. If you don’t have an awesome vintage set in the garage, use wrapping paper to cover any tin can around and fill with sprigs. This would also be a great last minute hostess gift stand-in for the 3rd brunch you’ve been invited to this week.
Tip Three: Having friends over for drinks this week? Instantly make the night festive by rimming all glasses in peppermint. To do this on the fly, place 4 candy canes in a Ziplock bag and bang with a meat clever until you have perfect peppermint topping. Place the glasses (or paper cups) upside down in a plate of water and then in the peppermint topping. It will pull together your cups no matter how mismatched they may be.
