Today I started to decorate the house for Christmas.
This year is a special challenge because two weeks after our Family Christmas Get-together, one of my grand-daughters is having her 21st birhtday party here, and then early Jan. my Mum is turning 95 and we're having a small party here for her.
What I needed was a colour scheme that only needed the finishing touches changed to be suitable for all three occasions.......and I came up with pale silver and gold bauble printed wrapping paper and plain silver wrapping paper to cover all my shelving in alternate stripes, and lots of silver and gold tinsel.
With this as an elegant all-purpose base, I plan to display Christmas ornaments and then replace them with lilac bows,baubles and beads for my grand-daughter and then replace them with flowers for Mum.
Soooo today I did the stripes and put brown paper over the contents of the book cases AND started putting out the Christmas Ornaments..........
I'm confident this plan will work.
I just need lots of lilac and pretty flowers and everyone will be happy and that will make me happy.
I hope you all have a good week
