I hope you had a great weekend. The only purpose of our weekend was eating. I guess there are days were it is the only thing that sounds great. And oh boy we had a bunch of awesome meals.
Speaking of meals, as you might know I am hosting a family Christmas dinner on the first Christmas holiday each year and I love myself a pretty table scape. I have done plenty throughout the year but one of my favorite is always Christmas. There are just more possibilities for Christmas than any other holiday of the year.
For this years Christmas table scape I went with red as our tree is red as well and I have to admit I wasn´t so happy with my idea at first but found some pretty great pieces on amazon that changed my mind.
The poinsettia table runner is a real beaut and I totally love how it looks with the metallic red plates. From here I decided to go with golden cutlery cause the gold also is in the runner. I had the white napkin rings for ages and never used them cause they never really fit but there is a time for everything and the time is now. To add a playful touch to the table I added candy canes to the napkins. Not only do they fit in theme and color they also add a nice little guest present to the setting.
Also have you noticed our new dining room table. Got it in last weekend just in time for Christmas. It is supposed to fit a lot more people than our white table.
I hope your day wasn´t as full as ours. We went to shoot some looks but the weather was so crazy it changed from sunshine to rain and storm within a few minutes and that wasn´t the perfect shooting weather. So after one look we gave up and headed to the city to get some things we needed/wanted for ourselves but it was hell on earth. Super crowded and hot. Don´t know what we have thought but on our way back to the car we found a new diner and all was good. It was empty and the food was delicious.
My love for Christmas themed sweater is no secret and every year I am looking for new ones that are cute but not tacky or ugly. So this blush and creme colored Norwegian sweater totally fits the bill.
For the look I added a super cute sparkly beanie with a couple rhinestones in the same blush color as the pattern of the sweater and a blush quilted handbag. To keep it on the more casual side I went with a pair of maternity jeans I got from H&M the other week and let´s be honest, there aren´t many pants I have that still fit me. And last but not least my favorite boots at the moment – black crocodile patterned pointy toe booties.
We are now officially done Christmas shopping but I still have one more gift guide for you as I have seen through the polls that most of you guys are still looking for stuff.
See you tomorrow when I am sharing were to get the cutest Christmas pj´s for the whole family.
we are under 2 weeks away from Christmas and it´s time to bust out all the Christmas sweater you got. If you got as many as I do it might be late already to wear a differnt one every day but let´s be honest we all have our favorites we love to wear all over again.
One of my favorite pieces for Christmas will always be a red sweater. Not only is red the ultimate Christmas color, it just looks great in combination with white.
I got this adorable sweater last week and have worn it a ton around the house and also out and about. For my look I added a pair of dark denim and some heels in the same color as the sweater. Have you seen the little reindeers on it? This totally get´s me in the Christmas spirit, not that I needed anymore. Anyways if you are spending some time outside I would request to add a matching beanie, not only does it look super cute but it also keeps you warm.
Do you like wearing Christmas themed sweaters or are you shying away from them cause they can look tacky quickly.
and welcome to one of my rare Saturday posts, but the month of December is full with a ton of stuff and deadlines so I need every possible day to share something different with you.
I love reading and I am browsing amazon every few weeks to find new books for me. And since there are more of me out there I am sharing this gift guide for the bookworm today. There is a whole lot more to a book than you might imagine. Like getting comfortable with a hot beverage and cuddled up into a warm blanket with your reading glasses. I have rounded up a bunch of things you could gift.
