Simple ways to give the house a special touch for special occasions
Let’s be real, lighting up the house is the first thing that comes to the mind while preparing for any sorts of celebration. Be it an indoor space or an outdoor space, it is an important and an effective way to decorate up the space. You can light up the fairy lights and also have hanging lanterns to add to the feel. Keeping candles in old jam jars are one of the latest trends in party decors and you might want to try that. In fact, it can help you create different loops around the corner to give a full party look. Hanging lights and lanterns from branches at different heights can be used to light up the garden.
Have a buffet system
Second most important part about the festivities other than the gathering is the food. People look forward to the food during the celebrations. To make the festivities even more exciting, you might want to add a special touch to the menu. You can have a buffet system so that the guests feel more comfortable. It is also a good way for them to interact with other guests and conversations happen over food. Keep multiple options, it looks nice to have a counter full of special delicacies during such occasions.
A bar section
As you are preparing the list of the food items that you are going to serve the guests, you might also want to have a look at the drinks options. Serving fresh lime, or cola or some fruit mix cocktails can be super cool and if served in a nice manner also help create a good impression for you.

Another thing that can give an entirely different look to your home during the festivals is the flower arrangement. Place different kind of flowers around the corners of the house. Set them in the vase in the living room, on the center table or add them near the windows. They instantly change the feel of the room and makes the house look more lively and welcoming.
