Christmas Margarita

This time of year my halls are decked and I am ready to have friends and family over for a Christmas party. Each year we get together and have a yankee swap along with some great apps and desserts but most importantly cocktails! I always try to make a signature cocktail for the evening. Last year I made spiked Wassail. This year I thought why not try to make a Christmas margarita.

Flocked Buffalo Check Christmas Tree

For years I have been swooning over a the idea of a flocked Christmas tree. Well this year I dragged out my Christmas Tree put it up and plugged it in and only 1/3rd of it lit up. I tried figuring out how to get all the lights to work and well I failed. I even tried just shaking it really hard, no surprise that didn’t work either. So you want to know what I did? I ordered my dream Christmas tree. The one I had been eyeing for years and guys I couldn’t be happier. It was worth every hard earned penny. The flocking is gorgeous and it’s the fullest tree I have ever owned

Dear Santa "Handlettered" Scroll Artwork

Dear Santa "Handlettered" Scroll Artwork

I posted about how much I loved the Hearth and Hand collection at Target and since then I have been staring at my Letters to Santa mailbox wondering how I could incorporate a letter to Santa. On instagram I have been seeing a lot of handlettering on scrolls for Christmas. I have even looked up a few of them but they are bit expensive for my budget. I decided why not try to create a smaller version using kraft paper and my Cricut!.

Mixed Metals Farmhouse Christmas Tree

Mixed Metals Farmhouse Christmas Tree

Every year I try to switch my christmas tree up a bit and this year is no different. After decorating neutral for fall I knew I wanted switch up my normal rustic christmas tree to a more farmhouse neutral tree. I love the idea of mixing metals. Silver and gold together used to be a faux paux but it is very much in right now. Heck I would've added rose gold too if it the ornaments in store didn't looks so pink.

Last Minute Washi Tape Christmas Gift Tags

Last Minute Washi Tape Christmas Gift Tags

So if you're like me you have all these grand plans for how you're going to wrap your gifts but no matter how much thought you have put into it, it ends up coming down to the wire. I started wrapping my Christmas presents tonight and realized there is a lot to wrap. I haven't even had time to make the Christmas tags I mentioned last week.

About two or three years ago I bought a box of a thousand craft paper tags with two other friends. Needless to say I still have hundreds of tags left. If you don't have any of these tags you can use the free tag outline in your silhouette library. If you don't have a silhouette you can use a tag punch or oven just a rectangle with a hole punch.

These tags will take you less than a minute to make.
