Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say on a bright Hawaiian Christmas day. I've never spent Christmas any place that wasn't cold and snowy, but I had fun dreaming of a pretty way you could decorate for the holidays in a tropical locale. Poppy pink hibiscus mixed with traditional poinsettias, evergreens combine with tropical greenery make for a fun off-beat mix.
Have you started decorating for Christmas yet? I know I know, it's early, but it just makes me so happy to put on some Christmas music and start unpacking my decorations. I've been thinking about how I want to change it up a little this year. Recently, I've been doing lots of glitter in gold and silver/gold with bright pink and bright turquoise pops. You can see some photos here and here. But this year, I want to switch it up. Something a little less bright, with more wood elements and inspiration drawn from Scandinavian Christmas decor. I love the idea of rose gold geometric shapes, mixed with simple wreaths and perhaps some DIY tassels. I also foresee one of these wood bead DIYs on my list of projects. What are your decorating plans? Are you mixing it up?
We love love you! Thank you for visiting and we'll see you in the New Year!!!
Today's mood board is less about weddings and more about getting into the holiday spirit. This year, I was thinking of doing Christmas a little more minimal. I love the scandinavian holiday vibe. A mix of blacks, metallics, whites, loads of texture and the more greenery the better! Here is my decorating mood board. Can I stick to it? I guess we'll have to wait and see...
I love kitschy Christmas decor and I've turned that love into inspiration for a hip holiday party. Picture a Mad Men Christmas party, complete with lots of eggnog out of a punch bowl, fruitcakes from everyone and lots of necking under the mistletoe while Bing Crosby plays in the background. I love the off-beat colors and the addition of glitz and glitter of the mood board below.
