Holiday Entertaining season is in full swing. From now until New Years, homes will be full of friends and family celebrating the holidays and ringing in the New Year. In true Black Southern Belle fashion, holiday entertaining is all about the decor. We all love traditional holiday decor but today we are here to give you some tips on How to Use Art With Your Holiday Entertaining Decor with the help of Framebridge.
As someone who loves art (have more than 100 pieces on my walls at home and 5 gallery walls), framed holiday art is the perfect way to add holiday spirit to your home. Share your images of holiday decor and art on social media by using the hashtag #blacksouthernbelle
How to Use Art With Your Holiday Entertaining Decor
Use Art as a Focal Point for Beverage or Food Station: What better way to add an element of style to your bar cart or beverage table than with a few pieces of art. Hang them high enough to not interfere with the styling of your food/beverage station.
Send a Message of Holiday Cheer: Instead of using a generic holiday piece from your local craft store, create a stylish welcome piece for your guests to see as soon as they arrive at the party. You can keep this piece for years to come and it makes a great place for guests to take selfies.
Put Those Holiday Photoshoots to Good Use: If you did a family holiday shoot this year or even previous years, be sure to put those pictures to good use and get them framed. These make great pieces for your holiday entertaining decor but also to have in your home throughout the year. Framebridge offers such great framing prices that switching them up every year is definitely an option.
Add Some of Your Favorite Holiday Memories: As a Black Southern Belle, we all remember the Whitley Gilbert and Dwayne Wayne Holiday episode, why not add a little Whitley Gilbert or holiday/song memories to your decor. Adding this will element be a great conversation piece to place over your cocktail or coffee station. Be sure to incorporate the colors of your bar into the colors of the framing for a cohesive holiday look.
