Hello, all. I hope you U.S. friends had a safe and blessed Thanksgiving with lots of great opportunities for memory-making… and that the rest of you are having a wonderful weekend. I’m so glad you stopped by for a visit!
As thoughts start turning toward Christmas, I have a question for you:
When it comes to Christmas, are you a “theme” person … changing things up every year … or do you prefer to stick with the familiar?
I’ve done it both ways, but I do love myself some themes!
In case you don’t have much experience using a theme at Christmas (or anytime, for that matter), let me offer a few quick things to consider.
Pick a theme. Really. Just pick one. Inspiration can come from anywhere. Sit tight and I’ll tell you where this one came from in a minute.
Here’s mine: Oh, Christmas Tree
Keep your theme in mind when
- selecting Christmas cards/party invitations, music, and food
- planning seasonal tablescapes and tabletop vignettes
- adding “little touches” like pictures or pillows
- choosing gift wrap – or craft projects
My inspiration for Oh, Christmas Tree came recently when I learned this…
Spode Christmas Tree made its debut 75 years ago today.
It’s one of the best selling Christmas patterns in dinnerware history. Did you know?
What’s your favorite Christmas dishware pattern? This one’s mine.
Well… my mind is now whirling with potential Christmas themes, but (sadly) I can’t do all of them this year.
Unless… Yes, I think I will!
Join me right here every day this month for Themes of Christmas. What can you expect? A little bit of everything!
Between now and the New Year, we’ll consider at least 31 different Christmas themes. Whichever themes you don’t use this holiday season will stay right here at My Place as a go-to resource series for your Christmas Future.
Sound fun? If it does, sign up to get My Place to Yours delivered right to your inbox so you won’t miss the inspiration. I’ll be sure to work in a little encouragement and challenge, too…
In the meantime, I’ll be joining:
