Entertaining guests at your home this holiday? Whether you’re hosting a grand reunion or just having a few friends over for drinks, Whizz is here to make entertaining clean and simple. Here are some tips so you can get through the pre-party decorating.

Concentrate your decorating on key areas

Your guests’ experience begins at the front door and foyer. A few tasteful lights and seasonal decorations welcome them with Christmas cheer. Party planners say you can use your existing home décor, with a few elegant holiday touches like berries and sprigs. Inexpensive fruits like green apples and lemons, or fresh flowers in bowls decorated with a bit of ribbon already add focal points to a side table or guest bathroom. Try decorating existing home plants, like hanging a keepsake ornament on a sturdy plant like an orchid.

Make a table centerpiece in minutes

You don’t need an elaborate table centerpiece. It won’t take 10 minutes to break off a few large roses and placing them in your existing crystal glasses, or use small Christmas tree décor to hold napkins together. You can also place pinecones and Christmas balls in hurricane glasses – they’ll catch the light from the lamps in your dining room. Another great impromptu centerpiece: candles or small wrapped boxes on cake stands!

Every child (at heart) loves candy

Fill glass apothecary jars with candy like colored taffy, chocolates and gummies. You can also place scoops and small bags on the table so guests can bring some home with them after the party.

Dress up the candles

Use holiday ribbon scraps to decorate plain candles. You can pin the ribbon directly on the candle with small stick pins or use a more elegant, decorate pin for extra flair!
