Might Be In Over My Head…Maybe?

Christmas

Its been busy around here. Serar’s Christmas party was this last weekend. Making candy for presents with lots and lots of unusual mishaps. My mom’s house finally closed (that’s a story for the record books and perhaps a future post…ugh!) Just to name a few. But we have also been finishing some last minute details to make Kate… Continue reading

A Designer Looking Christmas Tree...for CHEAP! www.wifemomhouseohmy.comIt is no secret that I love Christmas. And each year, I try to do something a little different. One constant has always been that I wanted my trees and my decorations to look like I hope my house does throughout the year – designed by a designer. Professional in other words. Professional. Designer. These words bring to… Continue reading

Kate Spade Live Colorfully Christmas: Gold Dot Christmas Cookie Plate www.wifemomhouseohmy.comPerhaps it should say cheese? In this family we leave wine and cheese for Santa. What can I say, Santa needs a break from all that sugar and lactose. But tradition states Santa gets cookies. So you can’t have Christmas without a cookie plate, right?

With my Kate Spade inspired Christmas, that left me with a couple of options. Dots… Continue reading

Kate Spade Live Colorfully Christmas: DIY Kate Spade Woodland Park Inspired Ornaments www.wifemomhouseohmy.comSo I am obsessed with Kate Spade right now…massively obsessed! I have purses, watches, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, iPad covers, phone covers and more of hers (nothing retail of course because that would violate my budget savvy, deal and steal hunting core inner diva). Its a mix of the combination of bold colors, the unapologetic use of bold graphics… Continue reading

So I got this brilliant idea that I wanted to make the majority of our Christmas décor this year since I figured rustic elegance as a theme would be pretty easy to accomplish. I’m starting to wonder where I get these harebrained notions – one of which was to create a burlap wreath on a wire frame for our front… Continue reading

A whole LOT of pinecones

A whole LOT of pinecones

As you saw in my last post, a lot of my inspiration fort his year’s holiday décor came from nature, specifically a trio of pinecones I discovered last year on a family hike. And as I said, I have been collecting pinecones for a while now. I got a, lot, a WHOLE lot… Continue reading

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I know this post should have come at least on Christmas Eve. But despite being a little late, I still wanted to get it out and finish my Counting Down to Christmas Series. I was working on finishing a Christmas project/present for my mother (that I started 6 months ago), which combined with… Continue reading

With the plan in place and the invitations sent, its time to focus on the atmosphere and creating the feel for your party. Most people decorate for Christmas and this is not a post on how to decorate your house but rather things to consider when decorating if you are also going to be hosting parties this year. A house… Continue reading

So once I have the general plan for my parties, the next most important thing is the invitations. You can do a digital version or an e-vite but there is something that is kind of nice about the handwritten or handmade invitation. And with a small enough guest list, these can be done fairly quickly. For both of the… Continue reading

One of the best things about the holidays is the parties. Whether you are hosting one or attending one, they are fun but they are a lot of work. I personally love hosting parties and now that my husband and I have our own home, I am really looking forward to this holiday season. I have hosted parties before but… Continue reading
