Styling tips

Happy Wish Company shares its top tips for pulling off this event.

Tip 1

The great thing about the Christmas is that your home is already decorated for the festivities. A sparkly tree and stockings hung by the chimney with care instantly make the space feel celebration-ready.

Tip 2

We took the classic red and green Christmas color scheme and added a dash of mint and pink to give it a vintage vibe. Here we layered a few garlands and buntings to transform the focal wall into a magical holiday wonderland. This backdrop would be adorable for a photo booth or a visit from Santa!

Tip 3

For the cake, we gave it a white ruffle frosting treatment and sprinkled silver edible glitter to make it sparkle. We stuck in this adorable Be Jolly Pom Pom Cake Topper as the perfect finishing touch.

Tip 4

Every year we have a Christmas bucket list we like to check off with our kids. At the top of that list is sugar cookie decorating! It’s such a fun activity for the kids and then they can eat the cookies afterwards with a cup of hot cocoa (with marshmallows)! Package the rest of the cookies in white bakery boxes and tie with ribbon as a sweet gift for friends and neighbors.

Tip 5

Other party activities could include writing letters to Santa, reading The Night Before Christmas, and if you’re really feeling the holiday spirit, you could have Santa make an appearance in person!
