It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

It is finally here!  I have been so excited about decorating for Christmas for months now.  Black Friday began at 2:00 A.M..  Yes, I know that it is really ridiculous to get that early, but I have so much fun doing it.  The funny thing is that this shopping trip that I expected to end around 10 A.M. lasted until 6:30 P.M. that day!  What can I say, we were on a mission.  The day was not going to end until I had found the perfect faux Christmas tree.  Thank you Hobby Lobby, you ended the madness!

Saturday started the kickoff of my Christmas decorating.  I have been steadily trying to get the main decor up.  I plan on giving a home tour next week.  This week I wanted to give you a sneak peak at a few of my favorites.  I have dolled up the chandelier.  She is full of sparkle, red hydrangea's offer pops of color and a little leopard print ribbon really gives it some extra personality!

This was accomplished by adding candle rings, garland, hydrangea's and leopard print ribbon.
It was super easy and took all of 10 minutes to do.


Here is a preview of what I will be featuring tomorrow


I am linking up with these parties:

Gorgeous Lacy! I always struggle with my chandelier and this gave me such great inspiration! I love those candle rings and will definitely be keeping a look out of some like that! :-)

I love the leopard ribbon. I also own Spode Christmas dishes. Yours look great against the plaid.

Your chandelier inspires me so! I have two simple ones that are just begging for some blinging up for Christmas, and I love what you've done. Mind if I borrow an idea or two? Kudos!

Jane said...

Love the chandy! We're incorporating leopard print ribbon this year, too. It's in the tree and on the garland in the family room. The entrance has tiger print ribbon...in honor of our beloved Auburn Tigers... quite fun!
