Creating the perfect holiday decor – each year it’s the same goal! Every host wants to have the most memorable centerpieces or the most unforgettable place settings – not to mention the tastiest dishes and cocktails. But keeping planning fresh and fun – while remaining season appropriate – can be a challenge. After all, how many different ways can you really remix a holiday event?
Plenty! Here at Tony Brewer and Co., our job is to provide creative, inspiring decor no matter what the circumstance. When it comes to holiday celebrations, the formula for freshness is simple: Blend color and creativity with a polished touch to produce a holiday that will be memorable for seasons to come!
Color:The holidays are about celebration – why not use them as an excuse to play with color? The classics are always a good choice – deep greens, golds and burgundy tones are traditional holiday colors. For a change of pace, however, try something more daring. Tone on tone, for instance, adds depth and a bit of creativity. Better still, choose a nontraditional holiday color like blue and build around it. Your options are only as limited as your creativity! Check out Pinterest for some amazing ideas.
Creativity: We touched on some of this last week, but we can’t help but elaborate! Step outside of the box. Rather than a simple play on some of the more common holiday themes – Santas, elves and the like – step things up by building your decor around a unique holiday theme. Do you have a favorite classic holiday performance? Use it for inspiration. We’d love to see a Nutcracker Suite theme! Better yet, use the changing season as inspiration for a winter-themed party. Think shimmering silver decor and ice sculptures. Brrr – grab your mink!
Detail: No matter what the occasion, paying attention to details is crucial. Make sure your theme idea is well-conceived before you take it on. Do you have a full color story and several ideas for how to bring it to life? Whether you play with color or do a full-out season-inspired theme, you’ll want to be sure it’s continuous – from drinks to place settings – to provide the most polished, pulled together affair.
And of course, if you’d rather “set it and forget it” Tony Brewer and Co. is always here! We’d love to give your event the Tony Brewer touch!
