Merry Christmas! JP and I spent Sunday morning decorating our home for the holidays; our tree is extra lovely this year. It's cluttered, with silver balls and a few mismatched ornaments, but I love it. Perfect in its imperfections.
This year I just taped up some ornaments inside of our frame; looks festive and unexpected with the heavy black plaster. I may add some more to the mix!
Some of the decorations are super simple. Here, we have a number of paper grocery bags, cut up and taped into a garland. A lovely way to greet people to the hallway!
As I mentioned yesterday, we had a little dessert party on Sunday. As per usual, I gathered way too much food: lumps o' coal (candy cane bits covered in dark chocolate), homemade caramel corn, croissants from Le Pain Quotidien (that was my man's touch!), homemade coconut-lime bars, homemade frosted flake-chocolate chip-marshmallow cookies, and pretzels with cocoa almond butter. And then guests brought more food! It was a very indulgent afternoon.
In addition, I put some hot chocolate and spiced apple cider on the stove, with various toppings. I must say, the liqueurs were a hit, at least with me!
John Paul, Mia, Winfred and I hope you're enjoying the holiday season, and all of the wonderful celebrations that go along with it!
