It's almost Christmas time! And Katie is getting her tree ready. So what goes into this process? How does Katie get that 8-foot tree into her apartment, and most importantly, what great tips does she have for decorating the tree? Well, Katie took a step back and let a professional take charge.
Katie's friend Jeffrey Phillip, a style and efficiency expert, helped out a little. Okay, a lot.
"The holidays are always about making your space more inviting and warmer," he says.
So what are some tips we learned from Jeffrey?
Tip 1: It's always important to use wire ribbon. This will make it easier for you to control the ribbon when wrapping it around the tree.
Tip 2: Adding garland to your mirrors will add pop and pizazz.
Tip 3: Incorporate colors from the room into your tree.
Tip 4: Add some flowers to your tree to give it charm. Katie is from the South, so magnolias were spread throughout.
If you are throwing a dinner party, you can use ornaments with guests' names instead of placeholders. This way, your guests will have a nice souvenir from a wonderful evening.
So how did Jeffrey do on that tree?
"It's so pretty. I love it," Katie said. "I love the flowers especially."
