Fresh Picks: Holiday Party Dresses

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…to party! In this season of what seems to be non-stop celebrations, a great party dress is definitely essential. Whether you opt for demure and ladylike or sparkly and vibrant, the right dress should definitely make an entrance.

Stylist’s Tip: Sequins, lace, pleats and mesh are all gorgeous details we love on party dresses. The problem is they tend to be very delicate, so great care must be taken in freshening them up. We love using the Rowenta Precision Valet Commercial Garment Steamer for de-wrinkling and even freshening up delicate dresses. It’s definitely a handy tool to have around! (A great bonus: You can use this handy tool all over the house, too—from your upholstery to drapes.)

Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, the holiday season is officially upon us. That means holiday parties and festivities are just around the corner!

To get you started on thinking about your holiday outfits, we’ve rounded up some of our party-ready picks from Donald J Pliner.

For the fellas, a pair of suede loafers in one of the season’s hottest colors, wine, is a great way to add some color to an outfit. If you want to go more classic, try a simple ankle boot or a dapper monkstrap shoe with a pair of crisp trousers.

For the ladies, we love combining a little black dress with a pair of sexy knee-high boots! A pair of dressy flats is also a comfy way to add ladylike appeal to any party attire. Try pairing any of these with sheer black tights for an even dressier feel.

Room Makeovers: Dress Up the Dining Table for Fall

Fall season is the perfect time to give the dining table a makeover. It's the season for parties and get-togethers, and the big countdown to holiday meals with the family. A great way to celebrate the season is to start putting together some Fall centerpieces and accessories to deck out the dining area. Everything from Fall foliage collections to leaf-decked napkin rings can help spruce up the dining space and get you in the mood to celebrate!

Start things off with the Fall centerpiece. Filling some glass hurricanes with a mix of gourds, marbles and colorful foliage can be an eye-catching addition to your dining table or buffet cart, and you can easily change out the mix each week to keep it fresh. Hurricanes are also good for filling with large candles, potted plants or a mixture of pine cones that have been spray painted in Fall colors.

For your table settings, get crafty with some homemade napkin rings. Making your own napkin rings can easily be a half-day craft project and there are dozens of different designs you can use to create a unique piece for your dinner table. Consider making a few rounds at the local crafts store for miniature Fall picks and small embellishments that you could glue-gun onto wood or metal napkin rings. If you purchase the rings in bulk, you can make an assortment of napkin holders for each week of the season, or to give to friends and family members.

Tablecloths are another accessory that can completely transform the look of your dining room, and all it takes is choosing a vibrant and bold color to create a new ambiance. Look for deep reds, rich browns, gold, burgundy or burnt orange colors to dress up your dining table, side tables and buffet stand. If you don't want to cover the entire table with color, consider covering up most of the table with large placemats or a runner embellished with Fall designs instead.

Adding some Fall-inspired accessories to your dining table, or crafting up some of your own, is a great way to count down to the holidays and make the most of the season. Try any of these decorating strategies to get your dining room into Fall mode in no time.
