Happy December 1st! The countdown is on! Yay!
I hope those of you who follow advent have purchased your chocolate advent calendars. There is no better way to start your day then with a piece of chocolate, and BONUS ~ at Christmas time there are no calories!
That’s my kind of countdown!
Wishing you a colorful and chocolate filled day
Happy Holidays my friends! (yup- there’s no denying it)
If you follow my instagram you know that last weekend was Christmas for me as a Christmas tree designer for the Boys and Girls Club annual Festival of Trees fundraiser. It was SO much fun – once I got my head in the Christmas mode! There is nothing more like Disneyland to me than walking around the stacks and shelves and boxes of ornaments, garlands, trims, ribbons, flowers, glittery coated things, etc…. and putting them together to create a themed tree! Total bliss! I ended up with 4x created – all very different from each other and fun. Last year I heard my Mele Kalikimaka palm tree went for the highest bid so I’m hoping for another win this year. No matter what the outcome I am so happy to support such an amazing group as the Boys and Girls Club!
The color palette below is a picture from my “Rose Gold Wonderland” tree – the colors were insane! If only I spent as much time on my own tree!
It’s Christmas time and I am SO looking forward to some relaxing fun with friends and family! It’s been quite a year on many levels but right now I just want to focus on joy, peace, and love and the spirit of giving this Holiday Season. One fun new thing I got to experience this year was the opportunity to be a Christmas Tree designer for the local Boys and Girls Club charity event – “The Festival of Trees”. For two weekends in the month of November I tinseled, bedazzled, and adorned four fabulous trees that were eventually auctioned off to the highest bidders to benefit our local Boys and Girls Club. The other designers and I had glitter coated in our hair and skin for a good three weeks afterwards (glitter is sticky stuff!), but it was worth the sparkling residue, especially seeing the finished trees on display. The colors were amazing so I decided there was no better way to finish 2016’s color palette series then with color inspiration from the four trees I designed! Enjoy!
“All You Need Is Love” – (my Peace inspired tree)
“Woodland Rapsody” – (this one is 100% inspired for my sister)
“Black Tie Affair” – (my black & white tree – and side note, it won a 1st prize ribbon!)
“Mele Kalikimaka” Palm – (inspired for my Hawaii Ohana)
OH, and one more thing…
some Christmas caroling fun carpool karaoke style as only James Corden can do! Wishing you a Very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, lots of Peace, Joy, Love, Wellness, & Fabulous Fun in 2017!
