Holiday Parties Event Planner Style


Dear Claudia,

We normally go home to visit family for the holidays but won’t be traveling this year because of the pandemic. My mother is a pro at entertaining; however, I don’t seem to have inherited that gene. Also, my dining room’s color palette doesn’t work well with the normal red and green color scheme that I associate with the Christmas season. How can we make our holiday festivities feel extra special this year? Thanks, Fiona in Fairfield, CT


Dear Fiona,

You’re in luck! I’ve partnered with Lauren Pressley from Southern Savvy Events and Deedie Springer of Springvine Design (in the Charlotte, NC area) to show you how to transform your dining room for the holidays and set the theme for a joyous and festive occasion. Happily, we got to use my own dining room to demonstrate how it’s done! Volume 4, Issue 4 |
