Chic Holiday Hostess

November 1, 2016

Welcome to November! While it may still be as hot as an August day here at the beach, I’m determined to get into full-on fall and holiday mode this month. I’m hoping to get all my Christmas shopping done early, make a few seasonal updates around the house and get inspired to be more gracious and giving this month. It’s easy for the next few weeks to feel busy and rushed and I want to enjoy it all at a relaxed pace so I can savor the moments. Whether you’re traveling for the holidays or playing hostess in your own home, bringing extra holiday warmth doesn’t have to be a struggle. I like keeping Thanksgiving and Christmas decor in my existing color palette while adding texture and shine. If you’re hosting, mix up your throw pillows and blankets so guests can feel cozy and at home. Add a new book to the current coffee table stack. Set a festive mood with candles or updated candle holders. Add a glamorous pop to the table with gold flatware instead of the usual setting. Make snacking cute and convenient with an adorable cheeseboard. And last, but not least, keep the holiday “spirit” going with luxe coasters and a chic bottle opener (along with your favorite bottle of wine, of course!). Be sure to scroll down for a fun little surprise at the bottom you won’t want to miss. 🙂Thanksgiving hosteess gifts, beachy Thanksgiving decor, white holiday decor, blush decor

  1. So many gorgeous hostess gift ideas! I especially love the cheeseboard 🙂 I don’t think it’s possible to have too many of them 😉

    I am right there with you when it comes to starting my shopping early this year! I ordered a gift before Halloween, which I think might be a new record for me.

    Happy Tuesday!
