Whether it's a big-budget blowout or a lunchtime buffet at the office, holiday parties are coming, and creative decor is an essential element.
And though the rough economy has roughed up some long-standing traditions, it's important to remember that there's no need to follow tradition in creating holiday party decor.
Creative designers work wonders with tried-and-true red-and-green, but also dream up winter wonderlands, Southwestern scenes and even South Beach settings.
