Hello everyone!  Hope you all are having a nice week so far!  It has been a crazy week for me, with work and holidays approaching faster than ever it's been hard to keep up!  We also have a December birthday at home and for those of you have have a family member turning years during this month will know what I'm talking about, crazy!!  My daughter is turning 10 tomorrow and we had a little gathering for her last Friday.  It was really cute to see the girls play, talk and laugh!  Here are some pictures of her party.

She wanted to have a Mustache theme, I didn't realize it was all over but no time to order on Etsy so I cut out some myself...

I got a mustache stamp and ink and did the napkins, put and adhesive letter on a paper cup to seat the girls and tied the utensils with matching ribbon...

I thought that if I had the girls seated for dinner things would't get too crazy... I'm not sure if it worked :)

The 'table runner' is actually gift wrapping paper from Paper Presentation

We also had a little snack table with cookies, cheese, chips and juice...

I think it turned out really nice and the girls had lots of fun!!

Now let's focus back on Christmas!
Thanks for reading!

Gift Guide {Under 25}

Hello Everyone!  I hope you all had a great weekend. Is it just me or days seem shorter?  I can't believe Christmas is just around the corner (and I haven't made my gift shopping yet)!  I usually make a list with my friends and family with the gift I would like to get for them and one or two other options just in case I can not find what I first had in mind.
Here is a list with some beautiful gifts.  I certainly would love to get any of these :)

Our tree...

Last Friday I showed you our little naked tree here.  During the excitement of decorating it my (almost) ten-year-old looked at me and said "Mom, is not about the decorations but instead about enjoying the moment while doing it".  I was speechless and could not say a word.  I certainly did enjoy decorating our tree and I hope it looks as nice as the time we spent doing it!

Since I can remember we've had a traditional tree with red, gold ornaments.  This year I wanted to do something a little different and went for a white theme. We used some of our old gold ornaments from last years and added some new ones.

I couldn't resist this red cardinals, aren't they cute?
The white poinsettia flowers I made using this pattern.

I reused little branches and added some red!

Pine in a bowl that I got as a present many years ago add the yummy Christmas scent to our living room
