Being a Host

So if you know me personally than you know I love to host, entertain, throw parties, and have people to our house! As the holiday season is in it's prime time I wanted to share with you a few inexpensive ways I like for my house to be over-the-top!

I always have one of these hiding behind a piece of furniture. When you walk in from the front door our house smells so warm and inviting. I actually use these all year around I just like the Holiday Spice during the Christmas season.

You can create very inexpensive centerpieces with the ornaments that couldn't fit on your Christmas tree. I also saw the solid red and gold ones at the Dollar Tree!

A charger plate is a terrific way to add color and texture to a dinner table. I found a plastic set of 4 in the dollar section at Target and they had a set of 12 of 19.99 that were ceramic.

Always provide warm yummy treats for your guest. I like to set some out for people to munch on before the meal. If I'm not serving I meal I will have different snacks set up like a buffet in my kitchen.

If you want to have favors for your guests, ornaments are a sure bet! Having something for people to take home with them is always nice.

The most important thing is for your home to be warm and welcoming. Enjoy your time with friends and family. After all, that's what it's all about.

  3. Sounds like you are a fabulous hostess. Favors? I die!

  4. Oh, I have been putting out ornaments as a centerpiece on my dining table for years now! I have this great serving dish from Africa that matches my table and I only pull it out at Christmas every year and fill it with lovely color coordinated bulbs! So fun!


I would LOVE to hear what you think!
