no doubt are going to blow us all away with their offerings.
This year has been a tumultous one full of unexpected growth and surprise.
My husband and I downsized to a small apartment, then we decided to get divorced, (I guess more downsizing) so right now I am living in a place betwixt and between.
Focusing on changing my business to a more mobile one, and less interested in holiday decorating.
The joy is different. everything I am doing en famille will be for the last time, and this year no annual open house.
I am in a mood for Reminiscent Decorating and this year I am focusing on using what I have
My daughter is getting ready to leap into her own life. I am sad and happy at the same time.
So I have gathered some holiday decorating moments from past years to encourage you to explore the magic of creating your own special look for the festive season.
The most important element of the Festive Season is celebrating shared friendship and love.
I love to pull together old and new in a seamless connecting garland for each year, adding or mixing an matching to recycle the past into the present. Easy holiday decorating is what I love.
And so 2010 feeling is created, and will be expanded on with more twiggy magic. I dont do my decorating on Thanksgiving, I do it closer to the night of the party.
Last year was a much more glamorous feel, I was into pearls glitter snowflakes roses & my mother’s lace tablecloth.
For an element of fun I used a chartreuse
For Christmas Eve Sit down dinner of Gravlax, Venison & Bouche de Noel, I used my mom’s trousseau embroidered tablecloths,
with a Christmas cracker at every plate and some orange roses wrapped with snowflake garlands. More bowls and dishes filled with “snow” and snowflakes
Many more moments of easy decorating, some of which I will share in another post, but to wrap up, here is some paper I created from photocopying old family photos , just
looking at this picture takes me back to my childhood. I dream of creating a photo focused decorating theme…. perhaps next year!
Please share how you bring your home to life over the holidays.
