Home-Entertaining Tips from Celebrity Event Planner Elvira Grau


With the holiday party season in full effect we are excited to share some tips to make this time a little easier. A few days ago celebrity event planner and mother of four, Elvira Grau shared some incredible tips for hosting a holiday party.

As an entrepreneur who built her business from scratch, Elvira proves that women really can have it all, and is a firm believer that hard work can lead to the "American Dream." She founded Space Odyssey USA in 2005 when she discovered an empty, 26,000 square foot warehouse and envisioned a one-of-a-kind, entertainment and private events space.

2. For beautiful, quick and cost effective holiday centerpieces, it'??s all about using the natural elements you can find in your backyard. Fill your favorite glass vases with pine cones, acorns, cranberries, or tall tree branches to create the perfect holiday centerpieces that won'??t break the bank.

3. When creating your table, it'??s always good to have a variety of different glass vases. Having a medium size square, a tall round cylinder, and a round shallow bowl around the house will make holiday decorating a cinch.
