Hope everyone’s week is going well! I had the pleasure of sitting down and chatting with my bff Lindsey Simcik and Krista Williams, hosts and creators of their bomb ass podcast called Almost 30, to talk about some cool, mod and of course chic, Holi-gay decor tips for this year! Is anyone else with me that they cannot even BELIEVE that it is the holidays already?! Where did Summer goooo?? I do love me some holi-gay cheer so lets break it downnn so you can have the coolest mod décor this season.
If anyone else is with me on this one too, I am SO over the traditional décor ideas. Red and Green overload, Poinsettias galore (I loathe them, no I’m not kidding, I really loathe them. Ask Lindsey ever since we were little I used to scream at my mom if she even brought them in the house #gaygenesincedayone) And those usual dam holiday wreaths that your mom hung up every year that had a giant ass red bow on them. Like we get it, it’s the holidays. Can we try something different? Like holiday mod vibez pa-leasssse!
We all want to be cool for our holiday fiestas and will look on Pinterest probably for hours to find the perfect décor ideas from food to cocktails to home décor to make sure you got that holiday party vibe on fleek. Well I got some goood ideas for you. Let’s break it downnnn.
I’m OVER the traditional green and red. Why does holiday décor need to be revolved around it? Rule #1- THERE ARE NO RULES. Who cares about red and green. This year I’m switching it up and making in more mod by picking a color or two and rolling with it. Silver and white are always going to be classic for holiday décor. Why? Because snowflakes are white, Santa has a white beard and because they compliment any color or theme.
Pick one or two of your favorite colors. For me, I love blues. You can do this through your alcohol bottle choices, ornaments and lights. Pair it with classic holiday colors of silver and white which will always compliment your color picks. You can always add in a mix or black plates or stemware to the mix for a darker-mod vibe.
Continuing with your POP color theme choice. Bring this to your tree décor. Find ornaments that are blues, silvers and whites. Also, try strands of white lights instead of the typical green. It’ll definitely give your tree a mod personality and look good with your POP color ornaments.
Bar and Table Décor
I love a cool bar or bar-cart to house the much-needed drinks for my holiday party. I always feel like I put everything together and it looks nice, but that it’s missing something. This year I’m trying something new. Find your favorite cool paper. Take a sheet and cut it to fit your bar top or bar-cart. It’ll act as a cool décor feature and makes for easy clean up the next day with all the spills that’ll happen. Here are some great and inexpensive options to choose from.
