Christmas Tour: Decoratively Speaking Events

I've got a treat for you guys today! It's a Christmas tour that is definitely a feast for the eyes. When I started my holiday page on Instagram this season, I happened upon quite a few interior design pages I wasn't yet following with my KCL Instagram. One of which caught my eye with beautiful event design. As we began to near the Christmas season, I noticed this design page posting more and more Christmas decor at various businesses. Talk about a dream job...being able to decorate so many different spaces for the holidays, with many different themes and colors!

As you can imagine, the designer at Decoratively Speaking Events is bound to have beautiful Christmas decor at home as well. From the fun vintage welcome, to the beautiful formal dining room, to the plaid Mackenzie-Childs Breakfast Room; you are sure to find some festive holiday inspo. Grab a cup of coffee (or hot cocoa) and enjoy!

Gift Guide: Easter Hostess Gifts $20 and Under


My mom always taught me that I should never show up to someone else's home empty-handed. This rule especially holds true if you're going to someone else's home for a holiday or special event. The hostess will have to spend time and money prepping for the occasion, so it's more than appropriate to bring them a hostess gift as a way to say thank you.  

You don't however have to spend a lot of money on a hostess gift. About $20 is perfectly appropriate. Just keep in mind this is in addition to anything you've offered to bring to serve at the meal. For a casual meal, contributing a dish or bottle of wine is sufficient, but for a holiday or dinner party, you really should bring something extra just for the hostess. It's tempting to bring flowers, but remember your hostess will be busy, so only bring them if they're already in a vase, or offer to put them in a vase when you arrive so the hostess doesn't have to.

When picking out a hostess gift, I focus on the current holiday and/ or season, as well as items any hostess would love even if she already has some. For example, a woman who likes to throw dinner parties can never have enough dinner napkins or serving dishes, so anything like that would be a welcome hostess gift. You can also play it safe with something they're bound to use like a gift set of bath soaps for a guest bathroom, a Spring scented candle, or a hand soap and lotion gift set for the kitchen. If you go with a gift like that, make sure you get something pretty and something festive that reflects the season like this "Chocolate Bunnies" Scented Yankee Jar Candle.
