Making 2012 Festive

We kept things pretty natural this year.  In looking at the pics, we may need to add a little color and funk!  
I love the cross-shaped wreath I found at Jones' this year.  It ended up being the perfect size for our dining room mirror.

The only thing I purchased new this year (besides the live plants) were these two glass urns for my den mantel.  My favorite Homegoods find in quite some time!  I then went to Milly's to get poinsettias, moss and the green twigs.

One of my absolute favorite things (like many girls) is Christmas cards.  I literally can't rip through the envelopes fast enough each day.  I think my mailman thinks it's slightly strange I've been greeting him at the door each day in Dec. :)  I've loved putting them on a little tree for us to have them on display.
We positioned our Christmas tree so we can enjoy it from the kitchen / den, but the twinkling lights can also be seen from the street.

No holiday is ever complete without torturing poor Ollie.  She particularly despised this elf headband.  I mean, have you ever seen a face THAT sad?

Last weekend (I'm behind!) we enjoyed having my parents up to visit.  My mom was kind enough to put a few thousand glistening lights on the tree and the boxwoods outside.  Thank you, Moddie!

We enjoyed dinner at Coquette.  I look like the ghost of Christmas past...

Last night we attended La & Bean's 3rd Annual Christmas Party.  I only took a few iPhone pics, but we had a great time!

Our lovely hosts -- the future Mr. & Mrs. Bean

After two nights of holiday parties we are all spending the day resting by the tree and making Christmas cookies tonight.  

 I love this time of the year!
