Christmas week is coming, and holiday entertaining really shifts into high gear. So many occasions! So many folks dropping over!
Tree trimming, present-wrapping, cocktail parties, Christmas Eve, Christmas morning pancakes and waffles, your big Christmas dinner, the day-after-Christmas leftovers dinner, pre-dinner cocktails, thrown-together lunches, and lots of casual drop-ins – all people you’re happy to see.
How do you keep that Christmas spirit glowing? Here’s a simple secret weapon. Vote for votives! Or bring out the tealights!
Votives and tealights are your new best friends this week. Get them out, set them around, and light them up. It’s amazing how they’ll keep the glow at any time of day or evening:
• Votives or tealights are happy to be on your Christmas dinner table. But you’ll be amazed at how they make even a casual breakfast or lunch gathering seasonal and special.
• Set some out in all the logical places –in your entry hall, on your mantel, on the hearth, on your coffee table and side tables, on shelves, on the kitchen island, on the power room sink – wherever you need a little extra “company” glow.
• Your holders don’t have to match – feel free to mix them up. You just need to like them together. You can always use tealights in votive holders, too.
Now turn off those harsh overhead lights, and watch the warm, seasonal glow that comes from small candles in many places. Votives and tealights are the perfect added touch to keep the holiday spirit flowing all week long.
