Decking Our Halls in Chartreuse and Gold

I planned on sharing this post this morning, sadly due to connectivity issues with our internet I wasn't able to. Rejoice, my internet is working again! I'ts hard to believe that Christmas is just right around the corner and I couldn't be more thrilled. Last year we Decked Our Halls in Color, this year I took a nod from our interior and thoughts shades or chartreuse mixed with gold would be so pretty. I shared our Christmas tree a few weeks ago, I'm so thrilled this year we went with a pretty flocked tree from Treetopia. In other fun news, I was in the LA Times last Thursday! They asked my opinions on Real vs. Artificial Christmas trees, you can read th article here (in the paper edition, they shared a picture of my son Tabari decorating our tree) When you have a chance stop by the Treetopia blog, I'm sharing my tips on decorating for the Holidays. I love evenings in our home during Christmastime and decided to take pictures of our home then. 

I kept our Christmas decorations pretty simple, filing a ceramic bowl with lots of ornaments and gold garland, During the holidays, can't get enough of tinsel garland! Our chartreuse and green ornaments are from Big Lots! I bought almost all the gold ornaments from Target [make sure you use your cartwheel app to score extra deals while shopping there]

I'm in love with our butterfly artwork above the sofa and wanted to add some merry mint to it, so I decided to make an ornament garland. I used gold ribbon to strung the each ornament though the top to create the garland. I used a mixture of gold, matte, glitter and shiny ornaments to create the garland. 

Our Christmas tree all lit up, I'm just in love with it and can't say that enough! I bought pre-lit garland from Lowes its the super nice and 'real' kind and placed it on our campaign dresser to give it extra sparkle.

This pretty picture with our Christmas tree all aglow in the bakcground just slays me!! So much pretty. 

I hope everyone's having a fun filled holiday season! I still have some last minute Christmas shopping to do this week, thankfully with help from the internet I'll get it all done! Stop by Thursday, I'll be sharing back to back last minute Holiday gift guides for Her / Him and Kids!
