When decorating spaces for holiday entertaining, it's important to consider individual areas within a single space to ensure a cohesive look. Carry the tone-on-tone look to surrounding sideboards, buffets and bars. Here, a serving buffet is lightly decorated with metallic and glass accents in the same off-white and champagne tones seen on the dining table.
Instead of opting for plastic cups and plates at a backyard bridal shower, up the classiness of your party by using real plates and glass champagne flutes. Skipping the plastic and paper will make any setting feel luxurious.
A semi-tarnished champagne bucket or used water pitcher can make a chic and unique flower vase, says Michiel Perry, founder of Black Southern Belle. If you have a covered porch or patio, don't be afraid to buy indoor pieces and spray paint them with outdoor protectant, she adds. Also, you can create a bar cart by buying an existing side table or thrift store steal and gluing a tray you already own to the top it. Then paint it or stamp it with your initials or a welcome message for guests.
When planning a backyard bridal party or outside dining experience, save money and double-down on charm by using real glassware instead of plastic cups. Guests will feel at home and the environment will thank you.
