Chalkboard presents! How cute are these? Get creative and wrap up something fun. Here’s a tutorial.
Holiday Checklist. You need it, trust me. Thanks to Glitter Guide, you’ll be a holiday pro this year.
Cutesy Displays. Display little Christmas figurines (vintage or not) in creative ways like under a glass dome. I love the idea of placing a small tree in a planter next to it, too!
Make your own wreath! Martha Stewart has a great tutorial on DIY wreaths. Get creative and add unconventional elements!
Get creative with your mantle using chalkboards, garlands and wreaths. Or simply find/make a gold framed chalkboard, write your choice of Christmas saying and lean against the wall above garland. I really love how personal this feels! It’s all about finding creative twists to holiday styling. I always want to challenge myself each year to create something creative.
This year I have seen really unique ways to work with live branches. One of my favorite ideas is displaying in vases like so. Crate and Barrel currently has the cutest small trees (about the size of this photo) in planters and the look is similar and great.
Throw a ‘Cup of Cheer’ get together. A ‘Cup of Cheer’ holiday gathering can include anything from a hot chocolate bar and cookie making station to an adult beverage (spiked eggnog anyone?) bar and dance party! It’s easier to throw together than you think. And if you already own a bar cart, even better. Decorate your cart for Christmas and invite a few friends over for themed drinks and cookies. Eat, drink and be merry.
