Candace Rose: What are the first steps we need to take when it comes to entertaining this holiday season?

Sabrina Soto: “Well, when it comes to entertaining or decorating, always plan ahead and don’t feel like you have to decorate every space in your home. Just focus on a few key spaces like the entryway, living room and obviously the dining room.”

Candace Rose: And how do we get started with those?

Sabrina Soto: “Well, in the entryway it’s the first and last place that people see, so it doesn’t necessarily have to be complicated, maybe just a decorative tray with a cocktail to greet your guests right through the front door. And then adding some decorative elements like mercury glass which is a huge trend this season and then when they get into the living room, you want to make this space very cozy- lots of decorative pillows and throws and then deck out your mantel with evergreens, ornaments, wreaths to decorative stockings and then once everybody’s done in the living room; the dining room where everybody has a meal with an inviting tablescape.

    I always recommend that you set the table the night before so it’s one less thing you have to think about; less stress. And a good tip is to use these serving dishes that can be transferred right out of the oven onto the table. This piece is Giada De Laurentiis for Target. It is beautiful and very affordable- something you can use all year round.”

Candace Rose: What are the latest trends in decor or most popular colors this holiday season?

Sabrina Soto: “I think you’re going to still see a lot of metallics- the matte golds and lots of mercury glass and then just updating more pops of color than the traditional red and green. You’ll see greens in the form of chartreuse or an apple green- something little more bright but really all of these new pieces can be easily incorporated into your existing decor and then for food you know a lot of times you’re going to see these cake pops that are all the rage now and you can actually buy a cake pop maker for about 20 dollars. It’s something super fun and easy for the kids to decorate the night before too and they’re so delicious.”

Sabrina Soto: “So good!”


Candace Rose: And how do we decorate with budget friendly decor?

Sabrina Soto: “Again, just incorporating new pieces into your existing decor, not having to buy everything brand new, adding the pops of color and the metallics. The more metallics the better, don’t be afraid to mix and match this year.”
