How to transform your space out of the everyday living and into the perfect set up for hosting your celebration.
Are you having a celebration in your home and need to spruce it up with some chic for cheap? Get creative and venture out into the streets of downtown Toronto as you may be surprised what you can find on a budget. Turning your home into the esthetically appealing, and oh so functional, space for our party isn’t as daunting of a task as you think.
Limited in your physical space? Fake it ‘till you make it to maximize how large the room looks. Prop a tall mirror up against the wall and place a candle or tea lights in front of it to give it a beautiful glow while creating the illusion of depth to any room. The Ikea EKNE mirror for under $50 and Wal-Mart’s Maintstay Flameless Tea Lights, 34 for under $15 can be a great combination and used again and again!
Not enough seating for everyone? Swing by Winners for a couple fabulous large floor pillows for under $45 and place them around the coffee table. This assists in giving the room a more intimate feel by creating nooks for your guests to get to know each other better in ease.
Now lets get people talking, moving, and eating. Create a comfortable flow through your home by setting up stations with snack trays in different areas of your home, this way your guests aren’t bound to one spot. You can find some great serving trays at Canadian Tire, like the Canvas Acacia wood platter with handles for under $12
Now that your home looks great, it’s your turn to stand out. If you’re looking for the perfect cocktail dress for your perfect party, stop by Cabaret Vintage at 627 Queen Street West. One of a kind dresses from the 1920’s, 30’s 40’s and 50’s ranging from $80-$400 will keep you looking chic and all of your friends asking “where did you get that dress?”
Looking for something a little sexier for that special someone at the party? Veer off the beaten path and hit up TSOQ (The Store On Queen) at 662 Queen Street West. You can find the Ziptux dress for $85, this winter white long sleeve blazer inspired dress with gold zippers and plunged neckline will for sure steal the show, and his heart.
So whether you’re staying inside for the end of evening or stepping out to end the night on the town, the perfect pair of shoes are essential to top it all off. Can’t find the right pair you say?
