…Stylish Decor ~ Get The Look!

‘Tis the season to be jolly and entertain.  Whether you’re planning a winter wedding, holiday party or an intimate holiday dinner, get inspired with these beautiful ideas from Pottery Barn!

On a tight budget?  Simple use of branches, pine cones and pure white candles can help you mimic this look.  Want that frosted touch?  Take your items outside and spray paint them with metallic paint to finish off that wintry feel

To get the look shown below on a budget, pick up some tall glass vases and round frosted votive holders from your local craft store or dollar store.  Fill them with small red round ornaments and limes.  Use plastic martini glasses and small plastic cocktail glasses in complimentary colors which you can also find at many dollar stores or party stores

Or, just head on over to Pottery Barn where you can find all of these items!  Also, check out their sister store, West Elm, for more affordable entertaining and decor ideas.  Happy holidays and happy planning!
