We are now fully convinced that white christmas trees are a necessity and that wrapping presents is infinitely better when friends + cocktails are involved. And if you need any convincing, Keitha Thomas Designs, Every Little Detail and Elegantly Yours Events are on the job. They've gathered all the holiday party essentials: a hot cocoa bar, a wrapping party, a gorgeous tablescape and festive cocktails too. Get inspired to mingle while you wrap with more captured by Jessica Maida in the vault.
This stylized shoot created and designed by Keitha Thomas Designs incorporated the fun traditions of decorating for the holidays, wrapping presents, sharing cocktails with friends and family and the magic of Christmas.
The formal dining room featured a gorgeous ethereal tablescape design by Nica of Every Little Detail that coordinated perfectly with the green and pink/gold hues of the decorating/cocktail party in the nearby sitting room. Dana Briggs of Elegantly Yours Events tied in a hot chocolate and dessert bar that greeted friends and family as they entered the main family room.
The theme of this holiday party was light and neutral tones accented with gold, yellow, gold and finally the bold red, white and black Christmas tree spread and hot chocolate bar. Subtle green touches were used throughout in the decorating, place settings, drink embellishments and packages. The tablescape was accented by ornament high top centerpieces that infused that subtle touch of Christmas and tied perfectly into the nearby Christmas tree room.
Finally the kids and even little Rosie the puppy made an appearance to help set the tone and vibe of a fun filled family event together. We hope that you readers might find this setup and holiday decorating easy and fun on any budget while still creating an elegant and soft twist on holiday decorating that can easily last right into the New Year!
