Host a home decor swap and turn your trash into treasure for St. Patrick’s Day. It’s easy to host a party with these tips and free printables.
My friend, Holly, over at Legally Crafty always has the best ideas.
We met on Instagram, the platform everyone loves to hate, amiright? It was pretty exciting to learn that she only lived about 20 minutes away. So we set out to collaborate on a Kentucky Derby party and haven’t looked back.
We have since collaborated on countless parties, from styling a backyard glamping party to providing Holly printables for her at-home party adventures, including this Basic Fall Girl party and this Bee Baby Shower.
Home Decor Swap
In the era of Marie Kondo, Holly decided that it would be fun to get her gal pals over for a little home decor and accessories swap.
Many of us are trying to purge our homes of items we never use, but it can be so hard to balance that with the excitement of getting a new seasonal item to decorate our homes with.
Here’s where a swap can save your cash but give you a little thrill at something new-to-you.
Create Zones of Similar Items
Use the 4×6″ signs to separate similar items. This will make it easier to sift through items and allow everyone to find what they want.
Hand out claimed tags to each guest and have them write in their name. You can give everyone a specific amount to “claim” the items they want.
You can make it a free for all and let people race to the best items, or set up some rules. The choice is yours.
Everyone can share their excitement of their new finds over dinner or snacks at a pretty table once the swap is complete.
Be sure to head over to Holly’s post to learn more about this gorgeous table.
She used the free place cards to assign seating.
