Holiday Entertaining


My husband and I love to entertain and believe there is nothing better than an evening at home filled with great food and great company. When holiday season rolls around entertaining always steps into high gear as we want to be around those we love and appreciate the most this time of year. Everyone has their own entertaining style and etiquette, but at the end of the day we all need to have some of the same basics on hand and a few fancy extras. Depending on my mood, one evenings guests may be surrounded by colour and festive tartan and another may be dazzled with silver and gold accents that sparkle. There really are no rules. Host in a way that feels natural and organic and it’s sure to be an evening to remember. Check out some of my go-to items for decorative holiday entertaining below and feel free to share what inspires you when it comes to hosting your loved ones.
