Decorating for the Holidays: Planning Parties

I love this time of year for what it means and the sharing of goodwill and love. I also love to see all the fabulous decorations out in the marketplace and in homes. I hope, if you're entertaining, you'll have as much fun decorating your home as you do hosting your parties.

Hollow out various sizes of pumpkins and place candles inside. Add additional autumn colored foliage to soften and fill up space. This is a very easy decoration for Thanksgiving.

Here's a quick party planning guide

  • Select a date and time. Talk to people first about their holiday plans before you finalize your own.
  • If you're allowing guests to bring dishes, delegate your wishes early so they have plenty of time to prepare.
  • Make a list right away of the ingredients you will need yourself. Add to it as you think of things.
  • Place your order for foot about 3 weeks ahead of the date. Get it in writing if you can.
  • Spread out the expense by purchasing non perishable items early on. This is a good idea for gift giving as well.
  • Three days before the event, purchase all grocery items and last-minute decorations and supplies.
  • Two days before event, pick up your food or flower orders or arrange for their delivery.
  • Start fixing food the day before and freeze or refrigerate it.
  • Prepare your cut flower arrangements the morning of the event. Get out the dishware. Count and stack it.
  • Start cooking at mid day for an evening event. Get your family to help with last minute details.
  • Relax. If you still have things to do when guests start arriving, put them to work. It helps relax everyone and generates easy conversation.

HOW TO HANG ARTWORK

You've had 5 works of art leaning up against the wall for several months. You've been stepping around them and over them for some time. They're there because you're just not sure where to hang them or how to hang them. The walls were freshly painted and you don't want to put any unnecessary holes in the walls.

Secret Art of Hanging Art


CREATING BEAUTIFUL WALLGROUPINGS

Most of your art and framed pictures are small. You know you shouldn't just scatter them about the room as that would make it very cluttered. You're concerned about how to place the art in and around furniture. So you've been living with nothing on the walls at all and your home looks pretty sterile and unappealing.
