Christmas and the reindeer

There’s a tight connection between these two – have you noticed? Of course you have, a reindeer has been the symbol of a Christmas for a very long time now. I must say, when I see a reindeer next to a Christmas tree I instantly feel so much joy and holiday cheer and I know it wouldn’t be the same without the reindeer part. So no matter the style you’re going with this Christmas, put there a cute reindeer (plastic, paper – it really isn’t important) and you’ll add to your holiday even more festive vibes!

Mint & Teal Christmas {this year’s fave}

Hello, friends! First of all let me apologize for being absent yesterday, leaving you with no post (can’t remember when that happened before, probably never). I was out of town all day, helping my MIL with her exhibition. But I’m back now! I missed you and hope you missed me too :D. And yes, happy December! Oh my, isn’t it unbelievable how fast time flies? In just one month we’ll say bye to 2010 and graciously embrace 2011. And this means what? Exactly – holidays are just around the corner, with reasons to decorate (and some shopping of course!). People are asking me what are  my favorite colors for Christmas this year and my answer is always the same: mint, teal, emerald green! I’m astonished by this color combo for a few weeks now! And imagine my face when I saw it in the latest Rue, on a Christmas tree (I was blown away, seriously!). The combo is so gentle yet so vibrant and modern. Traditional? No. Boring? No way! Awesome? Yes, please! I love it and will definitely consider decorating my tree with these shades. What about you?
