We’re Havin’ a Party (We’re Gonna Have a Good Time)

As, I mentioned yesterday, I thought this week I would focus on party and entertaining tips. Today’s post will focus on decor and ambiance. Other posts this week will touch on things like food, music, etc. Enjoy!

Ambiance and decor can set the mood for any gathering from simple cheese and wine to a full-fledged cocktail party with lots of decoration. The devil is in the details, as they say, and there are so many cute ideas out there that you can easily do yourself, relatively inexpensively, that will both set the mood and impress your guests.

Small decorative details can make all the difference. Candles are easy and cheap, candlelight makes everyone look good and feel festive.  A pretty centerpiece or some old-fashioned looking signage can make all the difference. Using photographs is also a great way to personalize a party and create interesting decor. And if the budget permits you are outside, there are lots of cool lighting options with string up lights and paper lanterns.
