Anywho, here is the mantle. I think we should add a big mirror behind the three wisemen because it needs some height, what do you think?
And the dining room table.
And here is the Christmas Tree, we used all gold ornaments last year, but decided to add some lime green this year and it looks AMAZING!!! So pretty! Sorry,the lime green doesn't really show up in this picture.
Here is an up close of the sparkly green.
And if you are in the mood to get crafty and make a few ornaments of your own, here is a great recipe:
What ya need is:
2 cups flour
2 cups flour
1/2 cup salt
3/4 cup water
Before I start, let me just say this makes a LOT of ornaments.feel free to cut the recipe in half if you are only looking to make a few. Also, this is a great project for kids! Its not really messy and is fun like play dough.
So alls ya have to do is mix the flour, salt and water together and add cinnamon (or nutmeg, or allspice) as desired. Now just go for it like a bull rider at a rodeo. Use some cookie cutters and personalize your creations as desired. Don't forget to add a hole to hang by. I sprinkled mine with extra cinnamon because when the lights from the Christmas tree warm the ornament, it gives off a yummy scent. Place ornaments on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes. Cool and add some pretty ribbon.
Hope you enjoy your ornaments! By the way, everyone does look at you funny when you are crawling around the Christmas tree with a camera trying to get a close up, I'm sure you can picture it and yes, it looks ridiculous.
Thanks for reading!
Love until next time,
