When choosing decor for your holiday party you can go one of two ways. You can choose traditional accents, or try something totally new – it just depends what aesthetic and vibe you’re going for this year. Both are great in their own way. Traditional holiday decor is obviously classic, you can’t really go wrong. However, modern or quirky decor is a lot of fun and will mix things up. You’ll have to choose traditional vs. new for all aspects of your holiday decor from the tree to the wrapping to the table settings. To give you a head start we’ve put together a collection of lots of different holiday place settings to inspire you.
While the presents under your Christmas tree offer a lot of intrigue, the most exciting gift-opening moments often comes from delving into your stocking. You’re not quite sure what you’re going to find, but it’s usually great, or at the very least unexpected. Stocking stuffers can be anything! Sweet treats, nice necessities, and quirky or luxe little extras. They may not be the biggest gifts you receive on Christmas (unless a diamond ring is hidden amongst the socks), but they’re definitely a lot of fun to open! Here are some ideas for his, hers, and kids stocking stuffers.

The holidays continue until January 9th, so there’s lots of time for family fun. Here are some ideas to help you fill the holiday itinerary with your kids!
