In case you haven’t noticed, we’re in full-blown holiday mode. We’ve put up our twinkly lights, sipped on our fair share of eggnog and have wrapped the last of our Christmas presents (okay, you caught us. We have a *few* more presents to buy).

But our favorite part of the holiday season? Holiday parties, of course! While we enjoy the traditional holly and jolly as much as the next person, we LOVE seeing how our friends’ personalities translate into their holiday decor — photo booth props from the selfie queen, Lisa Frank-themed decor dreamt up by your ’90s-obsessed BFF, and an embroidery hoop wreath created by your coworker who can’t resist a rustic touch.


Now we want to see the amazingly unique holiday parties that YOU all would throw, so we’re hosting a Holiday Party Contest!

Before you get in a panic and try to plan a party in the next two hours, we’ve got some good news for you — to enter, you don’t need to throw an actual party! All you have to do is make a Pinterest board with your ultimate holiday party inspo and share it with us!


Here’s how to enter:

1. Follow our DIY site, Snapguide, on Pinterest.

2. Create a board with your favorite recipes and decor DIYs from Snapguide and beyond! We want to see your dream holiday party.

3. Title your board “My Dream Holiday Party.”

4. Submit your board by entering the link in the comments of the Snapguide contest!


What does the winner get? Oh, just a $500 gift card to Crate & Barrel, so you’ll be totally ready for the next party you want to throw!


Need some inspo to get started? We made our own Pinterest board right here. Check it out, and don’t forget to share your own board!
