I am chuckling under my breath as I type this because it is honestly SUCH an easy, fun project for us last night! Unless you’ve been living in a pop-culture void, you know that ugly Christmas sweaters are ALL the rage. Well… Eleanor has an ugly sweater day at school and I decided it might be fun for us to make our own!
Not gonna sugar coat this for you… I’m a little wobbly crossing the Christmas finish line here, folks! What a season it’s been… filled with SO many wonderful opportunities and terrific holiday collaborations, but… phew. I made the mistake of starting The Walking Dead while I was wrapping presents yesterday and now I’m kind of a little bit hooked. (It’s so gross and scary so why do I want to watch more?!) And then last night we had a fun dinner with friends… anyways, here I am… two days late, finally posting our Christmas tablescape.
A week ago I received an email with the cutest DIY I’ve seen in a while. Did I mention the email was from the uber talented Jenn Largesse at Build Basic and she wanted me to join her and Home Depot for a party. A super cool virtual party with holiday decorations and power tools and dark chocolate (I added the chocolate part). Obvy my response was HECKYEAHIMIN. We needed to follow the basic outline (shown below) of the DIY, but the challenge was to personalize and generally make our post feel like the prom queen.
