Adding decorative vases and votive holders, like the ones shown here from Room & Board, can help liven up your space and make it feel more festive.
We all know that no party is complete without cheese, but Sarah advises that you shouldn’t feel the need to go all out with a cheese board before a big holiday meal! Keep it simple with just one celebratory choice. Her go-to is Brillat-Savarin truffle triple creme from her favorite Brooklyn cheese shop, Stinky Brooklyn. This cheese is similar to brie or camembert but more luxurious, and it pairs well with a big red or champagne-- perfect for a holiday meal! Sarah also advises to use multipurpose glasses to serve all your holiday beverages in, like these Faceted Crystal Tumblers.
