I hope you guys are ready for what is going to be a fabulous week here on coco+kelley! While last week was all about gift guides, this week will be all about entertaining! My favorite topic for the holidays. And today, we’re doing double duty by sharing a fun feature on Glitter Guide!

Hop over there this morning to see how I transformed my little apartment into the perfect setting for a holiday party! I know as well as anyone how hard it can be to gather friends when you don’t have a big house (let alone a functional kitchen) to entertain, but that doesn’t mean it’s not possible!

With a few practical tips and tricks, no matter what size your space, you’ll be sure to pick up a little advice and inspiration! You’ll see how I moved furniture around in my apartment to maximize room for guests…

And of course, lots of fun details…

So, head over to Glitter Guide to check out the feature, and a big thanks to them for having us!

    This looks gorgeous! I will be hosting a NYE party with the bf at his house this year, so these tips will definitely come in handy. Thanks for sharing!

    Question: would you please tell me where you bought your dining chairs?
    Also, is the table an oak one with a leaf that you painted black?
    Thank you.
    Great dress!

    I’m hosting a holiday party on the winter solstice for about 30 people and I’m trying to find the perfect (simple) holiday cocktail. Any recommendations? Thanks!

    I am utterly obsessed with your gold rimmed plates! Are they vintage? Great inspiration for those of us with small spaces, thank you!
