Blue Christmas

It's the most wonderful time of the year!
Christmas is just around the corner and we've already set up our simple Christmas decorations.
Here's what we came up this year :)

For our front door, we have got this paper rose wreath (see tutorial here).  We just added a pine needle garland (99 pesos) around it and a cream colored ribbon with a small blue Christmas ball at the center to make it look more Christmas-y.

For our living room center table, I bought a simple light blue place mat (29.75 pesos) and some blue Christmas balls (60 pesos for a pack of 12).  I already got this small fishbowl which I bought years ago for 120 pesos.

 For the dining room, we've got this very old kitchen cabinet from my lola that I decorated with folded old books (tutorial here), some pine needle garland, glittered candle, and Christmas lights.Blue Christmas 2013Here is what I have got on the other side, some more folded books, and another glittered candle.

At the center, I placed a shallow ball and filled it with blue and green Christmas balls (pesos 60 for a pack of 12), my coffee Christmas tree (What to make one?  Click here) and a jute string Christmas tree I also made.
I basically treated our kitchen cabinet like a fireplace mantle :)

At our dining table, I placed a wooden tray and filled it with a jar of biscuits, a jar of cookies, a tin can of cocoa, some more pine needles, Christmas balls, a rose, and a bowl of apple-flavored candies :)

We've also already wrapped some gifts and placed it under the Christmas tree
Most of them are handmade :)

I wanted something cool and neutral for our tree this year, so we've got some cream-colored poinsettias which I bought for 19 pesos each.

Another ornament I picked, Christmas bells with Christmas village silhouette.  I love this one and it was definitely a steal at 40 pesos each for a pack of 12.

I also got some blue poinsettias (also 19 pesos each) and some silver ribbons (60 pesos a roll).

We've got no star at the top of our tree.  I cannot find a silver star so I just placed a ribbon at the top, and remember those reindeers from my previous reindeer chihuahua tutorial?  Here they are making a comeback :) Spray painted them silver and placed them facing each other at the top of our tree.

For the lighting, I made this jute string ball chandelier almost five years ago, still looking great and I love, love the shadow it casts on the wall.

And of course, here's the most recent chandelier I made (tutorial here).

Here's a full view of our Christmas tree.
We bought this six-feet tree (1000 pesos) three years ago and it's still in a pretty good shape.
