Hey friends! I hope you're enjoying a lovely week so far and that you're ready for my first holiday entertaining post!
As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, I'm determined to be the hostess with the mostess this year! I love the idea of entertaining friends and family over the holidays and this year, I want to make it happen more often than not! Today, I'm sharing tips on how to style your coffee table for the holidays with entertaining in mind and with some help from Ferrero Rocher!
Your dining room table is set and ready for your guests, but you don't want to overlook your coffee table! Once dinner is over, invite your guests into your living room (or family room) to chat and continue the fun! I love the idea of placing treats on the table for guests to help themselves.
It's a great idea to prep everything a day or two before your party, one less thing to think about, but be sure to select decorative items that can be set out early! When it comes to styling your coffee table, you'll definitely want to add seasonal elements. Do this by including touches of greenery and of course, ornaments are a quick and easy way to add colour, and not to mention inexpensive! Chocolates are such a great choice because they can be set out a few days in advance (and well, the wrapping of these heavenly treats make them decorative!).
Ambiance is created with the help of some glittery candles and I made them the centerpiece by placing them on a few stacked books (that coordinate with the colour scheme), which gives them height. A tray decorated with greenery and ornaments is a great place for beverages.
Once I had the accessories in place, it was time to add the treats! Place them in various places on the coffee table and around the room so that your guests can easily help themselves no matter where they are sitting in the room. Tip! By adding some ornaments to your tiered stand, once the treats are all gone (which I guarantee, they will be) the stand doesn't sit empty and bare!
Ferrero Rocher has always been a staple in our home during the holidays. The taste, the wrappers, they most definitely make me think of Christmas! With an assortment of packing options (the tiered stand and the jewel box are stunning and perfect as is for displaying or gifting), they are a great go-to for entertaining and gifting!
