The holidays are in full swing and since it’s the most wonderful time of the year we know that you’ll be spending as much time as possible with friends and family.  We’ve curated 5 ways to chic up your holidays that will make it memorable!

Add Something Metallic to Your Christmas Tree

Wether you go for a rose gold tree topper or buy a different color (gold, white or silver) tree all together, sprucing up your Christmas pine will make for a super chic holiday feature as guests arrive. Not only will it be the perfect opportunity for some Instagram worthy pics, it’ll also be the center of talk and attention.

Curate Your Outfits

Who says you have to rock the ugly Christmas sweater for all 12 days of Christmas? Matching family pajamas are a fun choice and tradition, or go for a monochromatic red or green outfit to make spirits bright. Whatever it is plan your perfect Christmas Eve and Christmas Day outfits to make sure you make Santa’s Nice list.

Make Some Fancy Cocktails

Get into the holidays spirits this year with a fancy cocktail.  Egg nog is cool and all – but there are a ton of delicious drinks out there that are just as yummy and even more appealing for the gram. Try these Santa Clausmopolitans  or a White Christmas margarita for a ho ho ho of a good time.

 Create A Fab Tables-cape

Oh nana, Queen of the plastic table cloth and white doilies. Since we’re not in the 60’s anymore – be sure to chic up your holiday by adding decor to your table. Add a table runner and some eucalyptus garland adorned with yummy fruits and nuts for color (and snacking.) Go all out with glassware and classic white plates or go ultra chic with a fresh bouquet of flowers.

 Switch Up The Menu

I love a good turkey just like the next person – but as I’ve gotten older – It dawned on me how much I hate eating the same hugemeal back to back. Thanksgiving and Christmas fare is the exact same menu, give or take a few side dishes. Let’s put the turkey on the shelf for Christmas and go for a more modern meal. Bust out an all Italian menu with spaghettis, lasagnas, homemade meatballs and canolis for dessert. What about anall seafood menu with lobster as the main meat, sides of shrimp, scallop, crawfish, and we can’t forget the garlic butter.

Happy Holidays!
