I know November may be a wee bit early to decorate for the holidays but Saturday, November 20th was a perfect day in Vancouver BC , the sun was shining, it was warm out and being the organized person that I am I had already planned out my scheme and had everything that I needed to so I thought, why not?
I use the same major pieces each year but change the scheme. This year I took my inspiration from all the plaid and gold in fashion. All I did was change the bows on my wreaths, create some live urns with fresh cedar and birch poles, and spray paint the stars from the silver of last year to gold. I purchased a few yards of plaid and covered my deck chairs for that finishing detail. And….TA-DA! Now all I need to do is wait for December 1st to flick the light switch.
I hope this is an inspiration to you and will spark the flame of your Christmas spirit.
