How to Set the Right Ambiance
At a party, atmosphere is everything. It's also the easiest thing to control -- if you plan ahead. You can use aromatherapy along with these simple steps to create just the right mood for your next party.
- Relax. All you really have to do is clean things up a bit and organize — you're creating a party scene so keep it simple and fun.
- Simplify. Effortless and easy decorating will put your guests at ease the moment they enter your door. An overly formal, hyper-themed and color-coordinated scene signals a no-fun, uptight zone.
- Soften. Opt for softer area lighting or candles in safe and secure holders. Consider switching out bulbs to softer, perhaps even tinted, illumination
- Pacify. Diffuse an essential oil such as ylang ylang to help calm nerves for both yourself and your guests.
