This Holiday Guide was such a blast to create and gorgeous designer (and our design editor!) Emily Ruddo seriously takes the hostess award. Between Emily and Lulu Powers, this issue of Toujours Mag is an entertaining guidebook! We love that taking your existing decor and adding some flowers, a few wreaths, simple decorations, and rearranging what you already own can make such a big difference. Truly, Emily advises to use glitter (she uses the Martha variety) to brighten up inexpensive ornaments (try shatterproof - see the feather tree below). You can match the glitter to your decor - and you can always change it in a few years with new glitter. Remember, you can always use what you currently have in your house in a new spot - don't shy from rearranging - it makes all the difference! For more great tips from Emily Ruddo, definitely check out the guide and the holiday issue - there are tips galore.
