Holiday Decor Theme-off

Hi friends,

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend full of family and fun. I was able to cross a few things off the old holiday list. I rushed out to Mastermind on Friday night to get the last day of their sale only to realize that the items I bought are not right but there is still time. I do this thing where I secret shop for the kids while they are browsing the toys. The store clerks are great about letting me 'hide' gifts behind the counter and covertly ringing them in. Then I come back the next day to pick them up sans kids. Works like a charm because the kiddos are so distracted by all the toys. Have you ever tried this technique or is it just me?

Today, I have two competing design boards to share with you. This year we are upgrading our holiday decor and I am trying to decide between jewel tones and classic silver white. Which do you prefer?

Jewel Toned Holiday Decor

Oh....those jewel tones get me every time! What about you?

I leave you today with this amusing item:

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I'm torn between those two and a nordic look with white and wood and touches of red. Of the two you posted I think I would have to go with the jewel colours because I might find the silver and white a bit restrictive. I'm curious to see what you choose.

    1. I'm leaning towards the jewel tones but I'll probably end up with some of both. And some red and white too as many of my tree ornaments are red (family classics that must be kept). I loved the nordic look you used to decorate for your party. So festive.


Comments make my day :)
