Budget-friendly Decorating Ideas for Styling a Christmas Luncheon
Start with a glamorous palette of green and metallics as your base of hues. Think moss green, gold baubles, and silver dinnerware. Add unexpected floral touches with faux tulips!
Got spare Christmas baubles? Use them to create centerpieces by placing them in large bowls. Assemble with faux snow, moss, and pinecones.
Use your baking skills by creating Christmas cookies based on a family recipe. Present them in lovely organza sachets. Or, if you prefer something quick and easy to buy, then give shiny chocolate gold coins. The little ones will surely love them! It’s a great alternative when you prefer to give small, thoughtfully packaged gifts instead of wrapped presents in boxes. See the bags.
Create a festive wine and cheese display. Place it on a coffee or console table, if space is limited.
Time to re-purpose your garlands this year. Instead of decorating your mantle with them, why not try creating a magnificent doorway decoration. See the tutorial.
Give your gifts a pop of color this year. Got leftover gift-wrapping that is plain? Put them to good use by including them in your wrapping. Newspaper and kraft paper are also budget-friendly wrapping options.
Display guest place cards in these vintage gold picture frames. They can also serve as keepsakes to take home after the party. Add some peppermint taffy for a sweet Christmas look.
Sing carols by the Christmas tree this year! Instead of buying board games, you can have a sing-a-long party with friends and family.
Place dinner mints in these elegant sachet bags that are perfect for a Christmas ladies luncheon.
