a Christmas Party Hop…
Fun & festive DIY projects, beautiful homes, delicious recipes and much, much more!
Oh and I have exciting news! We now offer six month and twelve month digital subscriptions! These make wonderful gifts this holiday season!! OK, let’s get down to The Scoop! I was asked to pick 5-6 favorites from the link party – sounds simple, right? Wrong. This was so, so difficult because there were so many amazing projects and I sincerely mean that. But since I had to pick, here are some links that I especially loved and hope you will too.
First up, if you know me, you know I love entertaining and thought this Luxe Cheese Tray tutorial from Hello Little Home was perfect for this season of entertaining but also imaginative. Chocolate on a cheese tray? What a great idea! Plus, Kristen gave a lot of great details and tips on selecting and arranging too.
I am always awed and delighted with Amy from Twigg Studios’ Creations and she has not disappointed me with this spectacular looking Tiramisu cake. Who wouldn’t want to run right up to that if you saw it at a holiday party? It’s almost too pretty to eat… but only almost! Grab a fork!
I love great DIY furniture makeovers and was so smitten with “Jameson” by Danielle at Silver Pennies. What a talent she has for creating that “crumbled/distressed to perfection” look that I adore! Makes me want to makeover another piece of furniture, right now!
This Lampshade Christmas Tree from Danielle at Blessed Serendipity totally surprised me with its adorableness! I haven’t always had an appreciation for vintage “kitschy” ornaments but in the last couple of years they’ve been growing on me and her unique tree with its masses of beaded baubles and cheerful colors just makes me smile. So sweet!
I recently got a bunch of tiny vintage tart pans (although mine aren’t French!) so I was very inspired by Kathleen from Faded Charm’s French Tin Tarts ornament project. She has created such a serene setting, I want to just sit back, relax and soak in all the joie de Noel that is happening over there!
I am a big fan of easy projects that deliver a great look – the whole ‘luxe for less’ concept – and I have to say that this Tissue Paper Christmas Tree from Poppi Linn Studio fits this to a “T”. A simple project that looks like a million bucks. I can’t wait to try it! It doesn’t hurt that it does look similar to a bee skep and I have a growing collection of them… Now I can make my own variations! Love that!! Thank you all for allowing me to party with you this week. It’s been an honor and a pleasure! Happy Celebrating!
