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.
Life is busy, and sometimes we don’t always have time to make a complex cocktail. For alternatives to mimosas, pair champagne and frozen pineapples with your favorite glassware. The chilled fruit will not only chill your champagne quickly but also serve as decor for your cocktail.
