Christmas tree; the presence of a
happy family all wrapped up in
Only a week until Christmas! Is everyone ready? I always plan very carefully and then the week before Christmas have to do a few quick runs. :) I am excited for the holidays though! Each year I try to do something special with my Christmas wrapping. I search high and low for pastel papers and then I get creative with the trimmings. This Christmas I went all out! I made my own tags, embellished the gifts with beautiful ribbons, ornaments, and handmade flowers. I even made a miniature dress for the top of one gift! I added two little trees to my decorations this year as well. One pretty feathery pink one that I decorated with tiny pink ornaments and pearls, and a silvery crystal tree from Pottery Barn that I spent an afternoon wiring pretty pink crystals on. I also found a small pearlescent pink cake stand at Anthropologie and used it to hold a sparkly column candle with a handmade candle wreath. As you can see my theme this year is pink :) I long to have a full sized white tree that I can fill with pretty pink and ivory ornaments. Maybe next year!
