Are you around for the holidays this year? If so, why not dress up your home with beautiful decor items to ring in this cheery season?
Hosting family and friends over for the holidays is almost always an amazing, yet somewhat stressful, experience.
There is so much to orchestrate before the guests arrive and it’s natural to hope that everything runs smoothly. Setting a beautiful table is one thing you will want to check off your list early in the game plan.
My favourite thing to do is to curate a super easy tablescape by mixing a bit of old and new items. All it takes is a little bit of creativity and searching your local HomeSense Canada store for fabulous holiday decor finds to amp up your table and bar cart.
Last year, I was lucky enough to find so many fun items including a little doll who I aptly named Annabelle. When searching for a “friend” for her, I found this beauty and asked my followers to name her.
Meet Clara, the newest member of our family. She joined us at our holiday luncheon and ended up sitting on both the bar cart and island so she wouldn’t miss out on anything. How cute is she? I can’t.
This year, I decided to mix traditional colours with a pop of black, white and shades of pink. I loved how my island turned out when I hosted a holiday celebration for a few friends.
I always have wintery visions that include shimmery, dazzling decor. From the ornaments with sparkly embellishments and the glitter of garlands adorning the house, holiday decorations lend themselves to a beautiful wonderland of joy.
My “key” to creating a tablescape that’s not “ho hum” is to layer different shades of colour along with a mix of textures and metallic accents. In addition to using all the tableware, I love adding fun items that blend themselves into the vibe of the occasion.
For warmth and a subtle glow, I also like to adorn areas of the house with soft string lighting. The ambiance is simply beautiful, isn’t it?
Whether you’re modern, traditional or whimsical, you can’t go wrong with all these beautiful decor items from HomeSense Canada. I truly feel blessed at this time of the year and wish you and your family all the best for the holiday season.
