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!
