I'm in the midst of finishing our Christmas tree this year. Every year for the past 3 years, our tree has been silver, ice blue, ivory, feathers, mercury glass, white lights. This year I want something a little different. I have already put in the silver balls (big and small to give that extra depth) and then I pondered... Then I decided the way to go to add panache on a budget and life to my room was to add Chartreuse.. This beautiful fresh yellow green. So my palette will be Silver, Chartreuse and White. Also, I wanted to just do balls (small and large).This new scheme will save my time and energy too!

Here is an inspirational picture of my new palette: (the Perfect Palette blog)

Have fun this Christmas! Even if that means hanging garlands of pop corn, or anything fun you can think of to hang off of it!. When we lived in South Africa, we experienced Christmas in the Southern Hemisphere for the first time. So it was t-shirts and shorts. My mom, always so creative and an incredible homemaker, decorated the rubber plant in the living room like a Christmas tree. This is the Tree I remember as a child.
Merry Christmas all! Lots of love:)
