While the Christmas tree is coming along slowly but surely, I at least got the color pallet figured out. Instead of a red, white, and blue American flag holiday home, we now have turquoise, silver, white, and red. Nice huh? Here’s a little preview of those colors in a playful, festive vignette I put together in our bar area. First I filled the glass vases (from Target and Home Goods) with faux snow and ornaments. Then I wrapped “presents” and made a few bows. Snowflake ornaments from Hobby Lobby hang from above. Would you believe I did all of this and snapped some of the photos during James’ afternoon nap?! It’s true! Halfway through with wrapping paper and ribbon everywhere I started thinking, “He’s gonna wake up any minutes and be all over this!” But no:) I love this “naughty” and “nice” gift wrap I found at Wal-Mart last year. The other wrap is from Hobby Lobby and The Container Store. You say it doesn’t snow in Texas? Oh, I forgot to mention that Jimmy picked up a few poinsettias at Home Depot over the weekend. See that little guy peeking out at the end? 🙂 I’m sharing this post with Rhoda, Queen of Southern Hospitality! and my girl Nicolette at Momnivore’s Dilemma.
