Can you believe the calendar says it is September already! The kids are going back to school, your schedule is getting re-adjusted, and the nights are getting longer. My clients usually experience an “Oh Wow” moment this time of year when they realize the holidays are only weeks away and there is so much planning to do!
So what do you do if company is coming? May I suggest a bit of an interior re-fresh. This could be as simple as changing out your linens and throw pillows to reflect the fall season. Or, if you are looking for a more dramatic change… Make a huge visual impact by updating your living room or family room space. It is easier to accomplish than you may think.
This simple guide entitled, “Where Do I Put the Sofa?” gives you a step-by-step outline on how to create a warm and functional space that will both welcome and “wow” your holiday guests. You can access it by clicking here.
Or, let your holiday anxiety melt away and enjoy the season to its fullest!!!
How do you create holiday décor that is extra special? Why not make it yourself! Here is how you can make your own Christmas centerpiece quick and easy.
Get a gold-colored charger plate, gather up several pinecones, some rosemary and cranberries. Lay the cut rosemary stems on the bottom of the charger plate, scatter pinecones around plate in circular manner, sprinkle cranberries around perimeter for color, and finally place either a candle in the center or use an extra Christmas tree ornament. You can make one or several of these table decorations.
Merry Christmas and best wishes for a Happy New Year!
