Holiday Planning – Part 2

10 Dec

Greetings from Shorter Designs! This is the second part of a two-part holiday newsletter.

After doing the ideas from November’s newsletter, consider what type of ambiance you would like to have at your gathering. For instance, do you prefer childlike fun or adult elegance?

Make a list of the items you need to buy for your decorations.
