Anyway, I thought I'd share some of the lovely Christmas arrangements & decorating ideas that were presented at the Chrismas decor presentation yesterday. What I'm going to try to do is study these pictures, and then figure out how to do it cheaper. That's my thing. I love being thrifty, yet stylish. So here are the pictures. Enjoy the Christmas eye candy.
Sorry that this one is a bit fuzzy, but you can get the idea. They showed us how to add the ribbon to the garland. See that "tree?" It is actually what they call a "teardrop" turned upside down & hung from a hook to make a tree. This would be good for a wall in your home or office.
Again, this is fuzzy. (It gets better.) This was a regular crafty giftbox that has lights inside. It had a boring bow. She cut off the boring bow & added her own, along with some branches & bling.
This section of the store was decorated sooo beautifully. In the upper right hand corner you will see plain bare branches strung with silver icicles/tinsel. Beautiful!!
This is just a random pic that I took.
This is a beautiful piece that she showed us how to make with 3 berry stems & foliage.
This is cute and should be easy to make.
I love the peppermint look of this.
One of my favs.
I love how they decorated a picture with a garland.
This caught my eye because it is our high school's colors.
I love the playfulness of this.

I'm in love with the lime green decorations.
Pretty red, cream & white decor. I love the presents stacked on top of each other. Who's that in the mirror, I wonder? ;)
