Perfect Christmas Entertaining Set-Up

There's nothing more fun than Christmas entertaining. Keep these in mind to make sure your home celebration is one to remember:

Red accents. Whether it's throw pillows, tree ornaments, or candles on the dinner table, be sure to carry this color from room to room. It gives off great energy and makes a space welcoming.

Candy canes. Just because they're fun and for the simple fact that kids (and adults) love them so. Place a bunch in a vase, rest some on the coffee table or even in a jar on a kitchen counter.

Carols. A party isn't a party without traditional holiday tunes to get everyone in the spirit. Just be sure to keep the volume at a comfortable level so guests are still able to chat with ease.

Cozy blankets. Throw them across sofas to give your living area a cozy feel to make guests more relaxed. I'd personally go for ones in winter white.
