Welcome 😀 .
I love Christmas. I’m one of those people who starts counting down to it two months in advance. I secretly enjoy it when stores bring out their Christmas stuff far in advance (don’t judge me 😛 ) . I don’t think I can ever have too many Christmas decorations and I already foresee my attic being stuffed to the gills with holiday decor 🙂 .
This year we didn’t want to throw a big party but instead just invite a few friends over for an intimate but fancy, sit-down dinner party. The theme for the food was Indian-fusion (of course 🙂 ) . I’ll post the food menu and recipes in a separate blog post.
I’m a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to Christmas decor. Maybe because it reminds me of my childhood. My mother always made Christmas so magical and to me that magic is red, green and gold 🙂 . To me Christmas isn’t Christmas without SOME red SOMEWHERE. However, I found myself LOVING the gold/white/silver/multi-colored decorations I saw in all the stores and decided to decorate each room in my house with a different color theme. This is our formal dining room. I kept it pretty minimalist here with green being the dominant color. Lots of natural elements – wood and evergreens. I also brought in white, gold and specks of silver.
You won’t believe this, but I bought my gold flatware, vintage champagne glasses and that gorgeous wooden wine rack from the peddlers mall in a small Kentucky town! The wine rack was only $5. Score!
I love my colorful little morning room 🙂 . The tiny tree and baubles are just so adorable 🙂 !
