When it comes to these types of events, we’re typically working with small budgets. I try and use stuff that we already have, but then also go out and buy some things as well.
We have torn down boxes in our mailroom, so I taped some empty boxes back up and wrapped them in some brown kraft packaging paper that we had down there as well.
We usually try to bring down some furniture to add to the room (so it’s not just full of black plastic chairs). For the coffee tables up front, I knew I would need to add a little something to those. I bought some glass vases and filled them with some assorted ornaments and also some potpourri that had lots of sticks, berries and pinecones. I wrapped the outside with some greenery and attached some additional ornaments on the outside. I also added some candles and ornaments to the tables themselves.
I didn’t do anything too crazy. Kept it simple. The overall look I was going for was ‘Classic Christmas.’ What do you think, did I achieve that?
