every year I am looking forward to share our Christmas tree with you guys. I can go all out on Christmas decor, Christmas songs and just get in the spirit for the season.
This year I wanted a traditional color but also very glamorous so I decided to go with gold. You can never go wrong with one of the Christmas colors like gold or red. Since I had red last year this was the natural choice.
One thing I needed to switch out this year have been the lights. We always used string lights but to be honest it was a pain the a** to put them on every year. So I decided to get single lights this year which are turned on with a remote and let me tell you it is so convenient.
I got a pack of 30 pieces off of amazon and love them very much. They definitely add extra flair to the tree.
If you are looking for some extra inspiration for your Christmas tree I am linking my tree´s from the last years for you.
and welcome to my first holiday post regarding the Easter festivities. No one knows if it is possible to celebrate Easter with anyone else than the people you are quarantined at home this year but nevertheless I wanted to share a colorful Easter table scape in yellow and navy. I just love to create table decoration set ups. This is were I can be super creative.
For this years Easter holiday my color theme is yellow and navy. I absolutely love a bright yellow for every- and anything and my Easter decor for 2020 makes no exception here. The place mats are the same I have in several colors and I really like the material and shape. A woven place mat is perfect for Spring weather and upcoming holidays.
The cutest pieces of the whole table decor definitely are the yellow bunny napkin rings. The contrast with the navy cotton napkins makes the color pop right away.
Another cuter addition to the set up are the ceramic eggs in different colors and the little happy easter signs.
And for the frittata recipe, this is what you need:
– 4 teaspoons of milk
– 8 eggs
– 1/2 teaspoon of salt (if you want to add more feta leave the salt unless it is too much)
– scallions chopped
– 100 g cheddar cheese
– 150 g feta cheese
– 1 avocado to add as topping after baking)
– mix the eggs, milk and salt together and put into oven pan
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 am so eager to finally share our Christmas tree with you guys. I opted for a classic color theme this year in red and green. The traditional Christmas colors. I personally think it is the prettiest combo I have done so far but this is probably one thing I say every year.
The flocked white tree is from Fairy Trees I got from amazon three years ago and I still love it. I think the white makes is super christmassy and all the colored Christmas ornaments pop right out.
So I added a bunch of tartan checked bows and glass candy canes to the tree. I like to have different ornaments and to play around with different textures and shapes. The white tree skirt is also from amazon and cost about 20 Euro. I would say get one cause it totally adds dimension to the tree plus the white faux fur tree skirt looks great with presents on.
Another thing I enjoy decorating a lot is the mantle. Throwing a garland over it and adding the same color theme as on the tree not only makes it fitting in it also looks very festive.
I am not ready decorating everything. My garlands up the stairs are still in the making but I can say that I have all the presents I need for this year. At least I have accomplished this. The rest of my decor should be up by the end of next week. Step by step is my new motto. I have to admit I am not as fit as I was before getting pregnant and I am tired more often. This bugs me a lot but I just can´t change it and in the end I am very happy the way it is.
Did you decide on a color theme for your tree ? Have you set up already?
Wishing you a great weekend. I am going to post through the weekend so you can check back tomorrow or Sunday for new content.
