We are so close to Christmas and new year celebrations already, I can almost taste it!

At my house, December is definitely the month of hosting and entertaining, and I’m a fan of anything that helps the preparation process go as smoothly as possible. With all the thoughtful gifts and delicious food we put together for holiday entertaining each year, doesn’t it deserve to be paired with festive decorations and other entertaining essentials in your home?

I was thrilled to discover Old Time Pottery, because it’s literally my one-stop-shop for the holiday entertaining essentials, only minus the groceries. It’s all within my budget, and I love their unique decorative options, and also the ability to buy things to let my creativity flow in my home!

Make your Front Entry Pop!

Grab the garland, lights and more. These little details in the front of your home really create a warm welcome to everyone you’re hosting this year. It’s the first impression, so make it last!

If wood signs are your style, grab one of OTP’s many vertical options that fit perfect by your door, for only $25. Many of their stunning wreath options are $25 and under, too!

One-of-A-Kind Tree Essentials

Your Christmas tree will likely be the focal point of your entire gathering space this Christmas season, so make it uniquely you! The more the merrier, right? Add all the touches and details to make it really stand out this year. Pick a color theme, a few unique ornaments, a texture to run with, and go! This flocked tree has a great theme of golds and mixed metals.

Table Must-Haves

Let’s be real, a delicious meal with family and friends is a huge factor of the joy in the holiday season. Prep your table to be as beautiful as all the food you’re about to put on it! Old Time Pottery has the essentials when it comes to stunning runners, and affordable napkins, flatware and chargers. Seriously, the napkins and chargers were less than $2 each!

It’s also crucial to plan for a centerpiece. Whether you choose a premade floral arrangement or create your own masterpiece, make it the star of your tablescape. Your guests will thank you for it!

Games for the Family

After the gifts are exchanged and bellies are full, there’s nothing like playing games and getting some good belly laughs going. We like to keep it traditional, and luckily OTP has all the stops on games, too! Even including some vintage classics that everyone had fun with.

Festive Florals

It’s okay if you can’t pull out endless stops on new decorations for the entire home, but good thing there are endless floral options that won’t break the bank. These are great tucked separately or gathered together with a transitional piece already in your home!

Your guests are going to love gathering in your home this season! Be sure to show us how you styled it by using the hashtag #OTPStyle!
