The Ultimate Guide to A Glam Holiday Party

It’s day 5 of the 12 Days of CHRIS-elle and today, I’m teaming up with Parisian luxury house, Christofle to share the Ultimate Guide to a throwing a glam holiday party this year! Make sure you leave a comment on each blog post for a chance to win my favorite picks from each brand! One winner will be chosen at random after the 12 Days of CHRIS-elle are over!

Achieving a glam holiday party is a lot easier than it sounds. With a few simple steps, some statement pieces, and a little creativity, you can create a gorgeous and very glam tablescape!



1. Swap the Botanicals

The usual holiday flower is traditionally the poinsettia, which is gorgeous, but for my tablescape, I wanted to change it up and be a little unconventional but still classic. For my table florals, I decided to use eucalyptus and succulents for a fresh and natural look and feel.

2. Reuse Old Candles 

Candles are a must for any tablescape. They add a gorgeous ambiance and warmth to any party while adding holiday aroma in the air. And if you’ve got older candles, try re-purposing the vessel and adding some sweat treats!

3. Get Creative

An unconventional Christmas tree like the one above I created add some holiday flare while still looking really modern! I used a coat rack and some fun ornaments to jazz up the room without making it feel overwhelming. It’s a great (and simple) way to bring a festive touch to every room in your house!

4. Add Sparkle

You can never have enough sparkle! So for my glam tablescape, I added some costume jewelry! The shine looks gorgeous in the candlelight, and the juxtaposition of the jewels and greenery look super cool. Another cool tip is to use a bangle as a napkin holder! It gives that extra touch of glam using something already in your closet!

5. Have a Statement Piece

The Mood by Christofle is the perfect standout statement piece for your glam holiday party, and every other party you host! What I love about this particular piece is that it’s glam enough for your chicest holiday party and warm enough for a casual dinner with some friends. Christofle is the authority when it comes to amazing silver and has been around since the 1830’s! They believe in heritage and modernity and are all about enhancing the every day and I love that something so simple and sleek in design can make such a statement. Mood by Christofle has 24 flatware pieces which is the perfect set up for up to 6 guests. Not only is it perfect for holiday or housewarming, but it’s truly the gift that keeps on giving! Just having it in my dining area really brightens up the room and I’m not even going to tell you how many of my girlfriends have texted me that they want to steal this piece from me! 

Thanks to our partnership with Christofle, we were able to make a generous donation to Baby2Baby just in time for the holidays!
