mixed garlands & wreaths
simple whites and a little bit of bling
All are some of my favorites for Christmas touches in a room.
Simple but elegant is perfect for me- it feels warm and inviting
and brings a special holiday magic & ambiance to a room
The dining room in our home is dressed quietly with just a few touches
of fresh greens mixed with whites
The oversized chalkboard is draped in a mixed pine garland.
I love the greens against the black board.
Fresh clippings of cedar are placed in the chandeliers
while white tureens filled with narcissus march down the center of the table.
A stack of simple but elegant white dishes
These are Mikasa and are some of my favorites for special table settings
and simple everyday elegance.
You might notice a little treat set on the table too
I don't make a ton of cookies and treats for the Holidays
but there are a couple that I do make every year.
This one is a favorite
I found the recipe years ago in a Pillsbury cookbook or magazine or something like that
and we have been making them every year since.
I like to place them in something pretty like little silver cupcake liners
to give as part of a treat for friends and family or to set out for a party.
We always use Hersheys Hugs- with white and milk chocolate
but I have made them with regular chocolate as well and they are de.li.cious.
I promised to share the recipe a couple weeks ago on FB
so here you go!!
This is the original recipe courtesy of Pillsbury
(you can also find it on their website)
Fudgy Bon Bons
They are one of those cookies that it is hard to eat just one...or even just 5 of.
So enjoy responsibly- your workout routine will thank you
I also shared 5 easy last minute gifts over on the HomeGoods blog
if you are looking for something quick just a couple days before Christmas
Happy Sunday everyone
