Christmas Vignette

While the Christmas tree is coming along slowly but surely, I at least got the color pallet figured out.  Instead of a red, white, and blue American flag holiday home, we now have turquoise, silver, white, and red.  Nice huh?  Here’s a little preview of those colors in a playful, festive vignette I put together in our bar area.

First I filled the glass vases (from Target and Home Goods) with faux snow and ornaments.  Then I wrapped “presents” and made a few bows.

Snowflake ornaments from Hobby Lobby hang from above.

Would you believe I did all of this and snapped some of the photos during James’ afternoon nap?!  It’s true!  Halfway through with wrapping paper and ribbon everywhere I started thinking, “He’s gonna wake up any minutes and be all over this!”  But no:)

I love this “naughty” and “nice” gift wrap I found at Wal-Mart last year.   The other wrap is from Hobby Lobby and The Container Store.

You say it doesn’t snow in Texas?

Oh, I forgot to mention that Jimmy picked up a few poinsettias at Home Depot over the weekend.  See that little guy peeking out at the end? :)

  3. Looks beautiful! I am impressed that you got it all done while the little man was napping. I never seem to get much done while Aidan is napping... I swear they always know when we are starting something and choose to wake up at that moment!

  49. Come to think of it, this is a great way to "hide" all the real presents from prying toddlers who destroy the piles of gifts and lower halves of trees...

    for all you mamas out there reading this blog.

    Megan, I will "steal" this idea, once I start wrapping my gifts...
