Christmas Decorating Weekend

I hope everyone had a fantabulous weekend :)

I'm so happy to report that my weekend wasn't crazy hectic for once and I enjoyed every second of it! On Friday, H and I went to happy hour with Emily and her H after work which is always a good time. The rest of the weekend comprised of us getting ready for our Christmas party next weekend. Our house currently looks like a pinteresty-crafty bomb went off in it :-P

We picked up our Christmas tree on Saturday and decided to go with a big one this year since last year our tree looked so puny in the 2 story living room. It was so sad looking lol

The best part is it smells like Christmas!

We listened to Christmas music while we decorated and then watched Elf which was on tv.

"The best way to spread Christmas cheer is by singing loud for all to hear"

Sunday, I was busy working on a bunch of DIY projects for our party next weekend which are of course courtesy of Pinterest.

Menu signs for the food I'm making. Pic on the left is the inspiration from Pinterest, the pic on the right are all the ones I made up and are ready for menu cards.

Reindeer beer bottles... I found the eyes, red dots (noses), and pipe cleaners in the dollar section at Target

I hung up red and gold ornaments from the chandelier in the breakfast nook and the dining room

Such a mess! 

I also finally found a dress for H's work Christmas party at Kohls. Please excuse the greasy hair and flip flops :-P

Can't wait to put it all together on Friday and of course for both parties!


  1. I love the smell of a real tree! But I hate the mess. haha That's why I'm always glad my Mom gets a real one. ;)

  2. I am obsessed with all of your DIY projects - sooo cute! I loooove that dress so much, it looks like it was made for you!
