Welcome to Jeweled Interiors! Today I would love to show you a rustic-glam holiday party I threw for some of my dearest friends. Hopefully this will spark some ideas to make your next Christmas party fabulously fun.

Buffet Table

As a general rule I prefer to use buffet tables whenever 1) I want the party to have an easy-breezy flow or 2) I have seated more than one table’s worth of place settings.

As a backdrop for the main buffet table I purchased wallpaper from Amazon and stapled it onto a 4x8 sheet of plywood.

The white tree you ask? I fashioned a tomato cage into a tree shape, covered it with a drop cloth and hot glued ostrich feathers. It made for a dramatic centerpiece to the buffet table.

For this particular party I opted to do two buffet tables so that the food didn’t feel cramped.

To add visual interest to my buffet tables I love to layer mirrors, fresh greenery, food labels, and leafy greens under any main dishes. It’s the little details that make the presentation lovely. If you would like an in-depth tutorial on how to set up a stunning buffet table click HERE.

While the caramel poached pears were made from scratch ahead of time, I did a lot of “Costco catering”. When feeding massive amounts of people I like to supplement my dishes with appetizers from Trader Joe’s and Costco. If you put them in attractive, individual wrappers they feel homemade.  SHHHHH!!!

When hosting a party where I will have more guests than place settings I like to include serving lap-trays (see above). It was an investment, but one that I use often.

Apple or white grape juice mixed with 7-up and frozen cranberries makes for a simple, yet yummy drink. I also supplied a variety of sparkling ciders.

It is the little details that make tablescapes memorable. I couldn’t find any napkins I loved so I hand sewed these from Premier Prints fabric.

I came across these birch straws on Amazon and knew I had to make a small splurge.

I spray painted massive amounts of pinecones with gold and silver spray paint. Then I dipped the ends in Elmer’s glue and rolled them through glitter. The result? Totally chic and inexpensive additions to my tables and trees (with the standard dislaimer about potential glitter mess.)

I decorated this tree with white ostrich feathers left over from the previous year’s 1920’s party. It is hard to capture just how lovely it turned out, but the feathers added a soft magical touch.

Gold Table

Tablescapes are all about layers. On the second table I started with a sequin table cloth and then added a layer of white leather cut in the shape of a cowhide. On top of that I layered faux sheepskin and assortment of feathers, candles, and Christmas decor.

I ran into a similar issue with this table. I couldn’t find a napkin I loved, so I purchased a tablecloth cut it into squares and pulled out the ol’ sewing machine.

The pinecones not only added to the tablescape, they served as party favor ornaments for my guests.

Home Tour

To add cohesion to my entertaining spaces I continued the theme in the living room and entryway.

Photo Booth

I wanted to make a nice photobooth withouth spending much money. To do this I procured large furniture boxes and spray painted them silver. I then took left over black and ivory paint and whipped up some faux birch trees. To add a touch of glam I glued some black glitter on the shadows. While it isn’t perfect close up, it made for a lovely back drop for our photos.

Mrs. Claus and her darling little elf showed up to help with the party. Not only were they fabulous comic relief, they were incredibly helpful. I’m quite certain I couldn’t have done it without their help.
