Deck the Halls

The snow here in DC yesterday definitely helped get me in the holiday spirit! Most of my day was spent decorating the apartment. Even though I will be going home for Christmas I still insisted we have a live tree; I just can't imagine not having one! My inspiration for my holiday decor was actually found in Good Housekeeping.

I loved the apple greens and white poinsettias they featured here:

After finding some glittering gold pear ornaments in Home Goods I adopted the theme of "a partridge in a pear tree" for our tree. It still needs a few finishing touches, but I think it's turned out really well! I'll have to share a pic when it's finished. Hope you're all getting into the holiday spirit!


  1. I LOVE the green!!! It's gorgeous!!!

  2. Your decorations are gorgeous!!!

  3. love the theme and the greenery is gorgie- so fresh and crisp and you can keep it up past Christmas and it's still winter appropriate!

    I'd facebook thumbs up this if possible ;)

  7. and once again, we have the exact same taste in decor!! i did blue, brown, and bronze, but i have the same partridge in a pear tree theme going with mine. i bought a ton of goldleaf pear ornaments at restoration hardware a few years ago and adore them.

  8. Such beautiful inspiration. I love these colors!
