One of my favourite appetizers is France Brie cheese and Catherine's Red Pepper Jelly on wheat thins. Perfect with your favourite flavoured tea.
Holiday gatherings can be so much fun when everyone pitches in. This year, plan a simpler, saner family holiday: focus on cherished traditions, favorite foods, and special times with the people you love.
This year I went on a christmas house tour featuring 7 homes decorated for the Holidays by local florists and growers. I also went to The Glasshouse garden centre for more ideas & inspiration.
By surrounding yourself with the scents, sounds of christmas carols and visual displays of christmas, you will leave with a sense of peace & spirit of christmas.
A few days later I felt inspired to start my own christmas decorating. I went for a walk in my back yard & snipped various branches from our trees. I collected weeping cyprus, blue spruce, holly branches, red branches & other greenery. I arranged them in urns & made swags for the lamp post & placed a bright festive bow in it for color. It looks fantastic & is a great way to brighten your home for the holidays! Nature offers a soul-soothing refuge from holiday excess. Enjoy winter's beauty!
I purchased December's Romantic Homes Magazine and was loving all the pink and white decorations. Where do you find your Christmas decorating ideas and inspiration?
Remember: Jesus is the reason for the Season!
