It’s crazy how time just flies by… I still can’t believe it’s December! Before you know it we will be sitting under the tree unwrapping presents, blaring Christmas carols and having an incredible family meal.
If your house is anything like how I was raised your mom got started right after thanksgiving or the very next day. My dad already knew before he went to sleep he was going to the garage lol. My mother had a system and even though there were times when I thought she was a little crazy the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree because now so do I!
This Monday I’m just gonna share what I’ve started so far with my Christmas decor and of course details on the cozy yet chic look I decided to wear before I went out for my first Christmas party.
Below y’all first get a view of our Christmas Tree. Normally I shy away from the color red during this time of year. Its the color I feel y’all see a lot of with the holiday but this year I made it my focus color and based everything in my house around it.
I have also never used ribbon before so adding it on my tree was a first. I absolutely fell in love, it gave it a real chic touch and I plan on using a bigger style next year. My accent color is silver and shimmer lol so I found as many Christmas ornaments that would help me accomplish just that!
My table isn’t done yet but I don’t mind sharing my starting point. I created a centerpiece out of old ornaments and a few string of beads. On the side y’all see two candles the fake old school ones to give it a little style with my damask cherry red place sitting. My goal by the end of the week is to find some silver plates to add to the table. So we’ll see because so far I haven’t found any worth buying in the color I want. I’ll have to give you guys a before and after pic lol
