I love entertaining. And with the holidays right around the corner, it’s a great excuse to spruce up my home and make it inviting for guests without a major overhaul. I was flipping through Parenting Magazine of all places,(this is what happens when you have a 14 month old!), and was inspired by an article that tells how to get your home ready with just a few easy additions.

PILLOWS

Pillows with accents of cool blues, greens and silvers offer great versatility for holiday entertaining and year-round use without overpowering your existing decor.

This one from West Elm adds a unique print and vibrant color to any sofa or chair.

These gorgeous Tamara peacock and Evelyn Natural throw pillows from blisslivinghome.com are neutral yet add texture and holiday flair.

TABLEWARE

Pull out your existing tableware and mix with new pieces. I use these fleur-de-lis glasses from Anthropologie instead of traditional wine glasses. They come in several colors and are a great way to add a European-inspired touch to any cocktail party.

Roost also makes these beautiful Amelie Luster Glasses that come in a set of six, which you can pick up at Velocity.

Add a great punch of color to your dining or coffee table with these Indian-inspired Simrin Surya cotton napkins, also from Velocity.

BATHROOM

An easy way to revive your bathroom for holiday entertaining is by swapping out the shower curtain, bath mat and towels. This Himmeli print from Crate and Barrel is inexpensive and freshens up the space without a lot of fuss.

And last but not least, adding candles and fresh flowers always makes any home feel festive!

Just a few easy ideas that prove you don’t have to sacrifice your current decor or wallet for the holidays to make your home an inviting and stylish space.

    We forget that for a (relatively) little amount of money we can spruce up a room or two.

    I especially like to put up a new bathroom current and throw blankets and pillows can make a room.

    I always see lots of rooms painted with a neutral paint (beige) on the home improvement shows but they never seem to mention the name of the paint. I am looking for a great neutral paint! Any suggestions? I am going to go check out the Architectural Cream paint after I saw the above post today! Thanks!
