Christmas is full of magic and wonder. It is also full of to do lists and short hard to work with time frames. It can be easy to forget something when you have a list of a thousand things that all need to happen before the 25th. If you find yourself hosting any kind of Christmas get together this year and find that your plate is starting to over flow. Don't worry you can always work a little easy Christmas magic and pull something full of wonderment out of thin air.
Turn down the lights
Find every and all available candles then place them randomly throughout in safe zones. Spark a flame and light those beauties up. Turn down the lights and you have created a perfect warm cozy winter atmosphere.
Cheery and merry music is an absolute must. If it feels right start off the night with some holiday tunes. I love to leave the remote handy so that if anyone wants the chance to pick some of their own tunes to jam out to they can. I like to think it keeps things fresh, exciting, and gives everyone a turn to feel musically comfortable. This also takes the stress of being in complete control of the background music off the hostess. Every hostess can agree that less stress is always a blessing.
Festive and imaginative drinks at holiday functions is always a sight, but don't let that pressure to provide a drink that is talked about for days ruin your Christmas spirit. Even if you just toss in a few lemon or cucumber slices into glasses of water your guests will appreciate you effort and time spared to help make their night magically lovely.
Don't feel the pressure to instantly pop out a full 9 course meal equipped with warm towelettes.
Serve what you can and what you have. For if with the crowd of people candles, Christmas jingles, cucumber water, and simple pasta are nothing, but cozy gestures to help illuminate the love and laughter that has filled the room.
Enjoy the moment, relax, and share some laughs. Everything does not need to be picture perfect.
The holidays are all about spending time with each other. It is the time of year one needs to take a deep breath, slow down, and remember what it is we are all working towards.
Best part is you already have it …A Room Filled With Love!
