Design Alchemy is one of Sacramento’s top sources for great style. The interior design firm and retail space is run by a mother/daughter duo and offers home staging, decorating advice, custom furniture, and everything in between. (You can get a feel for their eclectic and sophisticated work on Instagram — it’s quickly become one of our favorite accounts!) The California design destination also has a little known secret — daughter Kristine Renee is an entertaining expert! 

Today, Kristine is sharing her wealth of information with our readers. From creating jaw-dropping floral arrangements with ease, to signature cocktails, to fun activities your guests will love — you’ll leave today’s post feeling inspired and prepared for holiday hosting. And since we love great taste, we’re also giving you a peek of the Sacramento store towards the end of the slideshow. Enjoy!
