Seasonal Staples: 5 Fool-Proof Entertaining Ideas

This time of year is perfect for enjoying your home. There is so much to look forward to, from holiday parties, extra time spent with family & friends, to (hopefully!) spending some well-deserved time relaxing in your home. 

Having a few tricks up your sleeve for this time of year is a great way to enjoy the next few weeks, so we gathered a few ideas for entertaining & decorating to inspire your seasonal festivities.

First up, a beautiful wreath is a perfect way to welcome guests and (yourself!) to your home. Outdoor decor can be as simple as a few fresh boughs of evergreen, and we know how quickly the scent of ceder, balsam and eucalyptus lift spirits. While the one we've shared above is a gorgeous mixture of evergreen hues and textures, we are big fans of coordinating wreath colour schemes with your interior and exterior decor. 

Creating a tablescape doesn't have to just be an activity for entertaining. Creating a simple collection of seasonally-inspired objects can add colour and fun to your space throughout the season. We love the tablescape above because of its simplicity. A few fresh greens, and a collection of Christmas ornaments and candles is a perfect combination of easy and beautiful.

While you may not need a signature cocktail for a night at home relaxing, having a go-to recipe is a great way to make a party memorable and elegant. This gorgeous champagne cocktail looks absolutely delicious, and celebrates the season with red, green and white!

Lastly, we love this adorable pinecone-inspired appetizer. It looks incredibly chic, yet is super simple and takes only a few minutes to prepare. Not only is this a great option to have in your own home for a last minute gathering, but it also makes an adorable contribution to a pot luck!
