This time of year there are endless holiday parties and gatherings; Thanksgiving, Christmas, work parties, cocktail parties, ugly sweater parties (which I despise so please don’t invite me lol), and of course New Year’s parties. Most of us end up spending a lot of time with family and friends we may not see regularly. The sparkle and shine of the holiday season is magical, but it doesn’t have to be reserved for late-November until January 1!
As a girl who loves to host events, I can tell you there are a million and one ways to continue that sparkle and shine throughout the year. For example, the hubs and I used to have a weekly game night with friends. We would keep it simple with dinner (and dessert of course) and a favorite card or board game. It took little effort to gather friends in one place and enjoy each others company and some laughs.
If a full meal isn’t your style or you are not comfortable whipping up a gourmet meal that’s ok. Putting together a charcuterie and cheese board, like the one pictured above, or a few appetizers (see my Pinterest appetizer board) is also a great way to “break bread” with those you care about.
The dinnerware, drink ware, and serving dishes and trays I like best are modern and usually white, wood, or glass. It’s just what I gravitate towards because it can be mixed and matched for every day and every holiday use. To make your year-round entertaining even easier I picked out a few items from Wayfair that may come in handy.
What are your favorite ways to add sparkle and shine year-round? Comment below! Until next post…xoxo Becca
