FREE Holiday Printables with HP

This week is all about last minute holiday prep (are you in this same boat?). One way to add some quick style to your holiday season is by incorporating holiday printables. What I love about printables is that they are an easy (and often free) way to give some style to your table setting, food display or gift wrapping. Simply print and you’re ready to go — simple! Look at this darling table setting by The Party Dress.

The addition of a simple printable name tag puts the finishing touches on the tablescape. I suggest using printable name cards (like the ones shown here) to direct guests to their seats. Place them on the napkin, directly on the plate or even attach them to the  chair backs. Be creative!

 

Download these FREE holiday printables from The Party Dress here. There are several holiday printable you can incorporate. Like these straw flags (perfect for holiday cocktails!).

And these gift tags that are perfect for holiday favors and gifts.

For more FREE holiday printables, see these cute milk & cookies printables  I shared last week.

 

 

This holiday season, let loved ones know how much you care. Use your favorite photos to create something personalized and unique for everyone on your list. Make it memorable. Make it meaningful. Make it matter. Go to hp.com/holiday for inspiration and ideas.

Create a Cozy Christmas Breakfast with Pier 1 Imports


 

There is something so magical about Christmas morning that over the years, it has become my favorite time to entertain. Christmas breakfast at my home has two requirements: expect it to be cozy and come in your pajamas. I love waking up early and setting a cozy breakfast table and this year I’ve turned to Pier 1 Imports to help me master that Christmas-cozy look!

I picked up a few finds and quickly set a table that adults and kids will eagerly gather around. I used these faux pine cone branches as a table runner (which can double as mantle decor!) and set 4 tan linen placemats as a base.

Next I picked up simple dishes from Pier 1 Imports — red plates and white bowls. Also, coordinating red mugs will perfectly hold coffee and hot cocoa on Christmas morning! Inside each bowl, a simple gift tag that serves as a place card.

And to tie it all together?  Christmas plaid napkins which bring home that cozy feel (don’t you think?).

In midst of all the chaos (aka children squealing with joy) Christmas morning can bring, I challenge you to make a special moment of Christmas cheer. Here are a couple Hostess Tips to keeping things simple:

-Set your breakfast table the night before. That way you won’t miss out on any magical moments in the morning!

-Serve simple food. Present store bought donuts or muffins in a thoughtful way (like the cake stand above) and set out bowls of fruit in the center of the table.

-For heartier breakfasts, prepare rolls and  casseroles the night before. Then in the morning you can simply pop them in the oven!

…………………………………………………………………………………………….

 

 Do you have any Christmas morning traditions? I’d love to hear them!

 

If it’s interesting, if it’s impressive, if it’s colorful and cute and one-of-a-kind—then odds are it’s probably from Pier 1 Imports®. After all, Pier 1 has been the place for unique finds for over 40 years. Our buyers travel the world’s major capitals and small villages hunting for the kinds of treasures you can’t find just anywhere—fresh and fragrant candles, exotic wicker, hand-painted dinnerware, gorgeous textiles and thoughtful hand crafted gifts. Find what speaks to you at Pier 1 Imports®.
