Holidays, Happy Days

Well a quick post as I'm heading off on holidays!!! yay !!! the long awaited annual holiday to Rainbow Beach. We normally go after Christmas so this is the first ever time we have organised it before Christmas which I must admit is feeling a little strange packing the suitcase and we haven't even had Christmas yet. Anyway I think everything is done - Christmas present are done, Christmas Day is organised, House is clean, Mother in law is house sitting the dogs, almost packed, the only thing left to do is to enjoy this lovely view !!! see you all in a week, hope everyone has a great week !!!

Well here is my centrepiece I made about 2 days ago very late at night, with the combined inspiration that I previously posted. I thought I would also use the word "JOY" on the table and my little snowflake tealights which I've had for a couple of years.  Anyway the hubby and kids said it looks good ??? I think once the table is done up with the blue and silver tablecloth, white plates, Bonbons, napkins etc it should scrub up alright.

Liebster Award

Well Happy Friday everyone !!! At least I think it's Friday. I'll just start by saying what a week it has been, School's finished, Grade 2 done and dusted. We've had rewards day and party day where we had to bring along homemade shortbread which me and the kids baked Wednesday afternoon listening to Christmas tunes. Book pack for Grade 3 was delivered to my door yesterday which you gotta love, can't complain about the service, all I have to do is cover them next year of course !!!. Kindy is finished, teacher's presents all handed out. We had a birthday party to attend yesterday afternoon, My Granma has been transported from a very badly run private hospital to a nursing home fingers crossed all good. And of course finished my Christmas shopping, but Best of all I received  a Liebster Award from a lovely lady who I met doing my Colour Psychology course, Mimi from

Christmas Centrepiece Inspiration

Well these are my colours, loving the whole table setting, looks stunning.

This is really nice, love the Christmas Balls in the hurricane Vase and the little candles

Looks great in any colour.
Well I need some inspiration for my Christmas Day table centrepiece. I got the family coming to our house this year and the pressure is on !!!. Menu is organised, I have Bon Bons, Napkins, Table cloth, Table runner, cute tealight candle holders, Pretty matching plates/or white china plates depending on how many we are having ???, now I just need a new centrepiece, nothing wrong with the old one just want something different. I've got a spare hurricane vase and some left over Christmas Balls, I was thinking maybe adding some of those twigs like in the first picture and hanging some little stars off the branches. Anyway stay tuned to see what I create, if you have any other ideas let me know I would love to hear from you !!!

Oh Christmas Tree

Our Christmas Tree
Well here is our Christmas Tree, we have had it up for over a week now thanks to the consent nagging of the kids.

I have collected various shades of Blue and Silver decorations over the past 3 - 4 years, including Butterflies, Fairies, Santa's, Snowflakes and lots of Christmas balls. There are about 4 sets of lights on there this year in Cool White and Blue. We had a ball decorating it as a family and Daddy gets to dress the top of the tree with the star. He prefers an Angel but I have had no luck finding a beautiful looking Angel in silver that's the right size for the tree. Do you prefer a star or an angel ???? Hope everyone is having a great weekend !!! We are off to see Santa tomorrow as the Christmas countdown continues.
