Merry, Mod, and Bright Holiday Party

MERRY, MOD & BRIGHT HOLIDAY PARTY - PARTY DECOR & FAVOR IDEAS:


Holiday Ambiance - Setting the Mood
Use scented jar candles to add some festive mood lighting AND fill the air with festive holiday scents. We used the frosted red Apple Cinnamon jar candles and frosted green Spruce It Up! jar candles from Glade here, and dressed them up with yarn, ribbon, and custom-designed, hand-cut paper banners featuring holiday phrases like "JOY" and design elements like reindeer silhouettes. Download these banners for free right here.

Let it Snow

Turn your ordinary light fixture or really any party of your ceiling into festive holiday decor by decorating it with “snowy” garlands made from white silk rose petals strung onto fishing line.  Tie several garlands to the light fixture or adhere them to the ceiling with invisible scotch tape, then suspend glittery snowflake ornaments (also hung from fishing line) amidst the snowy strands to complete the winter wonderland look.

Ornaments on a Shelf
Turn cube wall shelving or shadow boxes into cool accent decor by decorating them with patterned paper and printable banners and adorning them with Christmas ornaments and painted pinecones. The red and white shelves pictured here are from Room Essentials by Target ($15/set of 3 nested shelves), and we used Pop Up Glue Dots help secure some of the ornaments in place.

Berry Festive Manzanita
To create this oh-so-merry Berries & Manzanita arrangement, spray paint some manzanita branches red and display them from a shiny red vase (or any favorite vase you'd like to use). Fill some of the gaps with artificial holly berries (available at most craft and floral supply stores), then cover the opening of the vase with moss. Decorate the branches with ball ornaments and painted pinecones. For the finishing touch, dress up the vase with decorative paper and yarn!

Jolly Jars
Fill glass bell jars and apothecary jars with a little artificial snow and ball ornaments and pinecones. Decorate the outside of the jars with festive printable paper banners, yarn, or ribbon.

Creative Reindeer
Spray-paint inexpensive paper mache reindeer (available at most craft & holiday decor stores) to match your theme, and embellish them with festive holiday trims and decorative paper. No time to paint? Just leave the reindeer in their natural kraft paper or metallic gold state & stick to embellishments only.

Bring the Party Home {Party Favors}
Send your guests home with some of the exact same festive holiday ambiance from the party! Use decorative paper patterns and coordinating gift tags to turn the same scented jar candles used within the party decor into cute take-home gifts so that party-goers can easily enjoy at home! Pictured here: Apple Cinnamon and Spruce It Up! scents from Glade, in both scented jar candles and premium room sprays.
