It truly is the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!
We LOVE Christmas and the reason for the season! With the holiday + cozy days of winter comes gathering with loved ones. We adore entertaining and making our homes a warm and comforting place for all to gather! With the hustle and bustle of everyday life thrown in with the busyness of the Christmas season, we wanted to share our tips for making your entertaining a breeze!
Tip #1 Plan Ahead
Grab a pen + paper and make your list! Write down the purpose of the event, who, when, where, theme/tablescape, + menu. We majorly utilize Pinterest for inspiration and creating boards for our visions! This is also a fabulous tool when you are co-hosting an event so you can share ideas virtually!
Tip #2 Invites
In this day and age there are so MANY ways to send an invite! A phone call, text or digital invite (try www.punchbowl.com) are all great ways to extend an invitation! Our favorite is working with Gwen Marie Designs to create a custom paper invite to mail out! Snail mail is still our heart - and who doesn't LOVE to receive mail?! Send Gwen a color palette, any ideas + your message and she will create an invite you can send digitally via email/text OR print and mail!
Tip #3 SAY YES!
Tip #4 Effortless Decorating

Tip #5 Meal Prep
The day before you're hosting your event, you should definitely make any food that can be done ahead of time and prep any ingredients for last minute recipes. Set that table and make a list for your to-dos on the day of the event!
Tip #6 Set the Mood
Tip #7 Keep it Simple + Let it Go
