Due to the busy-ness of the recent days - prepping the house for the holidays & helping out in the family reunion preparations - it's only now that i'm posting pictures of the holiday spruce-up i did for our home. Sans a helper this year can really be taxing. anyway, it's a rather belated post, i know, but please indulge me...
I made use of the same decorations, save for my 2 new purchases - the platinum-colored reindeer which i got from national bookstore; & the Holy Family tabletop decor which i bought on sale in SM masinag.
For the lanai & the family area upstairs, i unwrapped the 3-kings & the santa-claus-in-a-sleigh decors i bought from a former co-parent & placed them there.
The theme is still the same for the living area: black, white, gold & platinum ornaments for our white faux christmas tree.
Our daybed in the family area had poinsettia-flower accent pillows.
My "mantel-like" holiday accent. actually, it's one of my main stairs window ledges. I still used the same berry-pine cone vine with the scented candles but i tweaked it a bit by inserting the glitter-dusted leaves.
And armed with my reliable dlsr cam, i took close-up shots of my home decors just so i can have that much needed practice & show them to you.
Anyway, enjoy as i click away...
And finally, on a personal note, an official family photo taken after our christmas eve dinner. This year, my sister, who's now us-based came back with her 2 children to study here & spend the holidays with us. Her husband is not with them because of work.
I hope you too had a blessed christmas celebration with your own families & here's wishing you all a great 2012!
