Decor: "You want a wintry white feel with deep crimson touches," says Vanlandingham. Outside, have votive candles leading to your house. Inside, use patterned linens (i.e., candy cane stripes), white birch branches, faux snow, and white hydrangea and red roses. Candy canes can do double duty as accents. Tuck them into "a monogrammed gift bag with a pretty ribbon" as one of the trinkets guests take home. He suggests finding supplies at local craft stores like Michaels and Hobby Lobby.
