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.
