I've never really gone for particular themes... I like sparkle, silver, gold, and color, and just sort of throw it all out there. We have bits of blue from RC and B&G Christmas drops, and my children sometimes choose animal-themed ornaments, while I often end up adding birds or travel-related decorations. Here are some pics I snapped yesterday:
My husband suggested I just go ahead and order the 2011 Christmas plate from my wishlist, which he didn't have to do twice, so I did. It arrived a few days ago and will be a nice addition to my little collection (all the others were gifts).
Two more nights till Christmas Eve! I need to find a good ris a la mande recipe soon.
On an unrelated note, I'm also looking for a good pair of heeled black suede boots. You know, like the kind you see on Duchess Catherine - which I've seen reported as (the pricey) Stuart Weitzman Zipkins... though in recent pictures in that olive RL sweater dress it really looks like the boots just have a half zip at the ankle, while the SWs zip all the way up... at any rate, that kind of look. J Crew has some nice ones but they have a brown stacked heel and I'm looking for that sleek, all black sort of look. Any suggestions?
