How is everyone? I’m in a total state of panic and on a major Christmas rush. I usually have pretty much all my gifts prepared as early as October and our Christmas tree is up after November 3, my daughter Danielle’s birthday. EXCEPT for this year!
This year Casa Antonio went into full Christmas mode late October. We skipped Halloween since we had various trick-or-treat events outside our home and Danielle was invited to play in a golf tournament in Guam for her birthday. BUT I’ve been so busy that I haven’t been able to shop for everyone’s gifts yet… OH GOSH!
On a lighter note, Christmas is definitely the most wonderful time of the year. I bring out my christmas crystals and decors that I inherited from my mom while the christmas linens and bling is ready for parties.
I usually change our theme every year but since Asher wasn’t old enough to appreciate last year’s Santa & Snowman theme, we decided to repeat it. PLUS the fact that I was crazy busy in October and had no time to think about Christmas planning. (Whichever excuse is better! haha!)
Our Christmas situation as of today. We’re only 1/4 done with our Christmas list, I’ve wrapped 1/2 of the gifts (oh and I wrap all the gifts personally & ALONE!) and we’ve sent out ZERO! OMGGGGGGGG. Crunch time!!
I love to have fun with my table setting especially during the holidays. I like to break rules and create my own! I mix my metals: silver and gold. I integrate classic crystals and elegant gold with modern silver cutlery. My favorite part: a spoon and knife wearing Santa’s pants. The kids love it!
Happy Holidays from our home to yours!!!
