Houzz Christmas challenge 2011
I was so thrilled when Houzz asked me to be a part of their Christmas entertaining contest.
Now, we live in a unit and are the youngest couple in our families, so (thankfully) no-one expects us to host a huge sit-down Christmas dinner. For us, Christmas parties are more casual get-togethers with friends. But having a small space doesn't mean we have to trim the guest list. With a few simple tweaks we were able to create a festive atmosphere for a crowd.
As an additional self-imposed challenge, I decided to see if I could pull it together without buying anything new. I'm pleased to say that (apart from food) I didn't spend a cent.
Still don't think you have the space or money for a holiday party? Read on (and if you're inspired, please leave a comment!).
