When you run out of surfaces to decorate, go vertical. Add glitter and glitz to the walls, archways, banisters and other spaces that won’t crowd you or your guests out.

Keep a few boxes and some packing material or bubble wrap on hand so that you can pack your holiday decor back up again at the end of the season.

Keep things moving
Entryways are notorious for getting clogged with shoes, wraps and other debris. Use decorative pegs to hang your guests’ outerwear and baskets or shoe racks to keep shoes neat and organized. Since your kitchen is likely to be the heart of the party, find a way to keep things circulating around it. Arrange furnishings so that guests can easily drop dishes off or serve themselves. Keep drinks easily accessible or at a drink station so that people don’t need to keep backtracking into the kitchen where they could cause a traffic jam.
