Holiday Guide: Beautiful Decorating Tips!

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.  
Happy decorating!
Taking a little Loreal red lipstick to the mirror was an easy way to pop more color in the room - practice first - 
it's not hard to clean, but who wants to?
Ribbon candy, homemade glitter ornaments and a homemade feather tree helped this dessert table shine.
To see more lovely photos, definitely check out the current issue.  Go to page 42 for the Decorating Guide or meander there and see other fabulous design, decoration, and entertaining stories.  
Happy Holidays!


  1. oooh I am super in love the purple ornaments! This is inspiring me, I may have to do a purple and silver Christmas theme this year!

  3. I love all the holiday ideas presented! It's a great way to use what I have and make my place more festive!
    Thank you Toujours!

  4. I love it! I can't believe how 'professional' it looks when it's something so simple. I'm excited to try it for my party next weekend. Thanks!!

  5. In Point Of Fact the discount rolex watches market for Fake Designer Handbags is really larger than the popular christmas gifts market for genuine branded bags. This is because the majority of cheap omega watches can simply not afford the mad costs at which genuine designer louis vuitton outlet online
    are accessible at. A genuine Louis vuitton bag can cost you up to $800. Yet if you search the hermes birkin kelly handbags inventory of knock off handbags you will have the capacity to get one for less than $100. Now why would you like to cost $700 extra on obtaining a chanel bag online that you can take for much lesser?
