It's time to set the tone for an elegant and elevated holiday season...

Start with cozy home fragrances that create a luxe, welcoming atmosphere for family gatherings and holiday cocktail parties. We love the ease and long-lasting aroma of Antica Farmacista's Home Ambiance Diffuser in Prosecco ($94), a celebratory scent that's sure to get everyone into a party mood.

Next, set the table with goodies from Kim Seybert – one of our favorite resources for entertaining essentials. These special occasion placemats, napkin rings and coasters are sure to make any holiday feast feel even more festive.

Don't just dress the table - make sure you're dressing the kids to match, too. We love these "formal" bibs from Mini Maniacs ($22) - the perfect accessory for any stylish baby with dinner parties to attend this season.

If you're a guest, don't turn up empty-handed! Zitomer is stocked with a treasure trove of crowd-pleasing host gifts that are sure to get you invited back. Thompson Ferrier's Decorative Candles ($68) are at the top of our wishlist, especially in Fireside Gunmetal Alligator - a spicy clove and rich sandalwood fragrance that warms up any home in the winter months.

Last but not least, get ready for all the parties to come by stepping up your skin care routine. With temperatures falling, skin needs extra nourishment; we have seen incredible transformation in our own skin thanks to Retrouvé's luxurious Nutrient Face Serum ($395), a sophisticated water-based hydrating product that's excellent for all skin types.

Follow up with a fabulous primer - one of our favorite makeup tips when the climate starts to get colder. Visit our make up counter on Madison Avenue for the perfect choice to create a beautiful dewy finish, especially if you have dry skin, and can be used alone as well as under your Z New York cosmetics.
