Plan Ahead For Holiday Entertaining
7) It's never too soon to start thinking about your fall decorating projects, Barnard says. "Year after year, clients call us in a panic just few weeks before their big holiday party," she says. "They find themselves expecting guests without the necessary accommodations like a large enough dining room table or ample guest bedrooms. Custom furniture and draperies usually take at minimum 8 weeks from order to delivery, so starting the design process now and planning on having orders placed no later than the end of September will ensure that everything is ready and fabulous for Thanksgiving."
