Shan & Meme's Christmas

Hello everyone the holiday is is near and Shan and I are gearing up to have all the kids and a few friends in and out this month so my heart strings are bein pulled a bit more than usual and I think that Shan is even excited with me.
We started with the Christmas tree last weekend after I searched online for a color scheme that would appeal to me. I finally decided on red,turquoise,and a lil chocolate brown, so off we went to Target and  this is what we came up with : I shared this @Momma Hens Coop's Whatever Wed.& Charm Bracelet DivasGW club,Mommy Head Adventures No Rules Blog hop along withFrom mommy To calm Insanity ,Ivy & Elephants Whats It Wed.& A Bowl Full Of Lemons  Tuesday Linky party!There should be some great projects to see stop by and join us if you feel it!
 I like the way it turned out but if I had to do it over again I would have bought larger brown ornaments to bring more brown color in.
 Some of these ornaments I already had but I purchased a few more. My favorite ornament this year happens to be the plush mushroom don't you think its too cute! I'm visiting over @Homemaker On A dime for her creative bloggers party & hop & Savvy Southern Style's Wow us Wed &The House In Roses Show off Your Cottage Monday along with Ms. Smartie pants  blog hop& From bleak to Unique Christmas blog Share. Should be a blast!

One thing that  has taken me by surprise was the price of tree skirts last year. I chose not to even use one for this reason, I just refuse to pay that amount for my tree to be fashionable lol. This year I found a skirt that would fit any budget 3.99 from GW! Yep an actual skirt! I bought it in the larger sized section it has lots of ruffles which is exactly the look I wanted for my tree.I tore it down the center and and just wrapped it around the base until it looked pleasing to me.Stop by Tales of a Trophy Wife's Crafting Cristmas tree Link up and A Glimpse Inside Thursday Find Party you'll find some other great ideas!Also im partying over@Its So Very Cheri's Christmas hop.And be sure to also stop by The Artsy Girl Connection Linky Party!!

I'll fill the chiminea with white chunky candles for ambiance before guest arrive
I love the way the tree looks now next to the red curtains it makes me happy.Just like linking up @Primp for  Primp Your Stuff Wednesday , Inspired Rooms's Christmas Home Tour, and Thrifty Decor Chick's Christmas Tree Party.
 I think I will have my hands full right up until Friday evening which is when I expect guest to arrive. I work best under pressure! I'm making a few list tonight and knocking out last minute errands by Thursday evening. Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday hustle and bustle. See Ya next post.~
