The holidays will soon be upon us which mean one thing. So will the guests.
Between dinner parties, brunches, gift exchanges, cocktail parties and more your home will be filling up with friends as you enjoy the season to come. Is your home holiday party ready?
The most crucial step in getting your modern living room ready for your holiday party is to address your seating. Do you have enough comfortable seating for everyone? Does your furniture arrangement allow for socializing without yelling across an empty space? Anchor your seating around an area rug to facilitate conversations between your guests. Make it easy for them to find a place to sit and chat.
Make sure that each seating area has access to a coffee table or side table. This gives your guests a spot to place their drinks, dinner plates or hors d'oeuvres. Stools and ottomans can also serve as extra seating or even temporary tables.
Add soft and inviting touches with your season decor. Hightlight the winter months with the addition of throws, winter decor and candles.
Add a cozy factor through your lighting selections. Put your light on dimmers and add even more candles where possible.
Then sit back and enjoy your guests as you gather together to enjoy each other's company.
