12 Creative Ideas & Tips for Holiday Entertaining

Share It

With the holidays quickly approaching, we’re starting to plan our schedules, decor and menus for our family gatherings and holiday parties. Hosting people is one of the reasons Design*Sponge loves interiors. Countless Sneak Peeks over the years end their home tours with, “What I love most about my home is having friends over dinner,” or a similar sentiment. It’s not easy to host people (especially over the holidays when everyone comes with different expectations of what traditions should be), but we’ve collected a few fun and creative ideas when it comes to decor, setting the table and easy recipes to try. What do you do to celebrate the holidays with guests in your home? –Lauren
