Metallic Holidays

Hello Friends!
Happy Holidays from Ruffles & Rouge Events!  I wanted to share a little holiday inspiration to you folks who may still be decorating for Christmas or may be considering a New Year's party.  This year I transitioned my own holiday home decor from super colorful to more subdued with LOTS of metallics.  And the more I look at it, the longer I want it to stay up.  Actually it could transition beautifully into New Year's... if only I was having a party (the hubs would kill me:).  So in keeping with this super festive metallic trend, I wanted to share some of my favorite looks with you. 
 I hope you enjoy!

The House That Lars Built
 I'm starting with this show-stopper! If you have a formal sitting area, or living room, talk about making an impact!

The Enchanted Home
 One of my favorites~mercury glass.  Try adding some of these beauties to your existing containers to create an inexpensive metallic pop to any area of your home.
Better Homes and Gardens
If you are more into the natural look, try combining fresh garland with some metallic pine cones and twigs.  Adding white accents gives the affect of snow and also looks crisp.
Occasions Online
Another idea for adding some pizazz to your natural style is to simply create a metallic confetti table runner.  Paired with fresh flowers, this is perfect for a New Year's Eve dinner party.

Have a champagne and dessert bar!  Trust me, it will make your guests feel extra special.  AND because the champagne bottles are so beautiful, your additional metallic decor can be minimal. 

Martha Stewart Weddings
 Last but not least, here is a sweet idea from Martha Stewart.  Incorporate your decor into your wardrobe.  Here are two similar and age-appropriate ways to jazz up your look.  It's always nice to look special when hosting a party or gathering.
