Be Our Guest

With the first official day of fall behind us in the Bay Head area, it’s never too early in the season to start preparing for holiday entertaining. Here are some tips to make sure your soirée goes off without a hitch.

 Light It Up

The right lighting can instantly create an ambiance worthy of a party not soon forgotten. There are few things in life that can exude luxury so effortlessly as gold. So trade out the simple shades for something with a little more shine.

Set the Scene

There’s something about velvet that feels warm and welcoming, while still being luxurious. Even in an oceanfront home with a style all its own, this perfect combination of sentiments makes it the fabric for the season. Make a dramatic entrance with a new piece of furniture, or take a more subtle approach with velvet pillows or a throw.

Bon Appétit

The lighting is perfect and the scene is set for your guests to arrive. Now, attentions have to be turned to the main course, literally. Keep these essential pieces in your kitchen’s arsenal, because no party should be thrown without some delish eats.
