Entertaining, Holiday and tagged | | | Leave a comment

This week, we’re taking a closer look at the five bloggers who are featured in our Mystery Box Challenge. We challenged five of our favorite entertaining bloggers to create holiday decor vignettes with ornaments from our Jewels for the Home collection in the second Mystery Box Design Challenge. You can vote for your favorite design here. Today, we’re featuring the designs created by Shelley O’Donnell at Divine Party Concepts.

What’s your favorite type of holiday party to throw?

“My favorite type of holiday party to host is a Christmas cocktail party.  I love to serve finger foods and nice cocktails.  The décor and ambiance of Christmas always makes for a nice party.”

What’s your favorite holiday drink to serve (or drink)?

“My favorite holiday drink to serve is sangria.  A nice berry-flavored sangria goes well with the holidays and I’ve even served chocolate sangria at a holiday party that everyone loved.”

What’s one effortless way to add holiday décor to a party?

“One effortless way to add holiday décor to a party is to use natural items such as pinecones, acorns, branches and berries.  You can easily dress these items up with glitter, spray paint and crystals.  You can also add these items to candles and tables for a beautiful accent to your décor.”
