When push comes to shove, I guess I'd say I'm traditional HOWEVER if given the option to be a little bit of all things, I am all about some pops of non-traditional flare of course!!
While turquoise may not be the natural next to follow red and green in the list of holiday colors, it sure does seem to make for some beautiful decor!!
So if you've felt like your decor has been missing a little something the past few weeks, perhaps some turquoise splashed in there would be just the umph you're looking for?
Here's to hoping your season is filled with Turquoise, Christmas and Bliss!

Easy decor -- turquoise ornaments (or any color for that matter) set in all of your silver pieces.
The turquoise accented stockings were hung by the chimney with care...

In all the hustle and bustle of the season, I lost track of time yesterday and didn't have a chance to share with you some festive frozen treats on none other than National Ice Cream Day! I figure it's never too late for ice cream though so here you go, just one day late!
How cute are these -- prep the peppermint ice cream cups ahead of time and then set up a sauce bar for your guests!

Undoubtedly, I am a lover of all things paper so it comes as no surprise that I am always looking at gift tags for cool new ideas!
A few of the favorites I have seen so far this holiday season!
Here's to Tag-gy Tuesday...
Not to be confused with tacky, which accurately and admirably describes the tour our limo ride took us on this past weekend in Richmond. Let me tell you -- those houses fabulously decked to the nines!

Friends, I'm back and promise to make up for all the lost time!!
Magnolia leaves are as simple and yet elegant and pretty as they come and boy are they the perfect addition to all of your holiday decor! Be on the lookout for a magnolia tree in your neighborhood to borrow a few leaves from and spruce up your mantle, garland, tablescape, or wreath!
Merry, Merry Magnolia!
So simple -- Magnolia leaves with tea lights. Subtle twinkling glow.
Magnolia garland adorning the staircase -- about as traditional and festive as it gets.
