Christmas Lights as Event Decor

Today is the first of December, which means Christmas is just around the corner! One of my favorite Christmas decorations are the lights. Whether you call them Christmas lights, twinkle lights or fairy lights, using them to decorate a space can add warmth and additional light. Another thing I love about them is whether your event is outdoor or indoor, it doesn’t have to be a Christmas theme to use them! Use them for a summer bbq, or a fairy birthday party. There are all kinds of different ways to use them; wrap them around columns or tree trunks, spread them over bushes, make a tent top out of lights, hang them along a wall or on the edges of tables. And that’s just the start! There really is no limit besides that of your imagination. Use LED lights for more consistent lighting; LED lights also do not get as hot as regular Christmas tree lights. Add glass and mirrors to help reflect the light.

Kiara’s Top 10 Favorite Beach Wedding Decor


I am currently in the process of moving to Galveston island, so I’ve been crazy about all things beach lately! I’ve been wanting to get into destination weddings for a while now, and let’s face it – destination weddings to Dallas are not very popular! (I’ve also always wanted to live near the ocean, so there’s that too.) Given my obsession with all things seashells and sand lately, I thought it was a good idea to post about it! Here are my top ten favorite beach inspired decorations for beach weddings via Pinterest, although most (if not all) of them can be used for other events as well!
