Found: Instant Ambiance For Your Next Gathering!

Are you hosting anyone for Thanksgiving?  Planning a dinner party soon?  Then you have to try out this ambiance-inducing trick…

(or for instant-awesomeness, host your next dinner party in a vineyard!)

Travis and I recently had some friends over for dinner, and as I was prepping in the kitchen, he transformed our living and dining room into this super-cozy little hosting spot.  When I came out from cooking, he had turned off all of the overhead lights in our house in favor of the warmer, more subtle lamp lighting.  It made the whole space feel so inviting.

Then, he turned Pandora to the Nat King Cole station and it was as if our home radiated comfort.

Needless to say, we’ve been doing it almost every night (even when we don’t have company!) because we love how homey our apartment feels.

Have you used either of these tactics to warm up your home for a gathering?  Got any other easy ways to make your house party-ready?  Are you hosting anyone for the holidays?  Tell me about it in the comments!
