Holiday House Tour Part 2

I'm so behind - I've had 'blog posts' on my to-do list pretty much all week - so I think I'm going to have another 2 or 3 part - blog post-a-thon. :)

First of all - I'm excited - we're down to less than 4 days until Christmas.  I host Christmas Eve dinner at my house and I'm really looking forward to it. I've decorated more than usual and I've been planning the meal for quite a while - hopefully everything turns out!

I started setting my dining room table for Christmas Eve (I might swap the runner for my holiday table cloth because I'd have a panic attack if we spilled stuff all on that &%$^* expensive runner :) )

 To say I'm obsessed with these glasses is the understatement of the year.  Love them!  I found them from two different sellers on Etsy and I was so thrilled they arrived without any damage.  I feel super fancy with matching goblets and sherbet dishes (not that I'm serving sherbet...or that my father will drink out of them...but you get the idea)

Here are a few more of my tree.  I'm so proud of it this year - I added some silver sparkly picks I found at Hobby Lobby (I also added a few to my hydrangea arrangements around the house).  I actually splurged and ordered a new fancy tree from Pottery Barn earlier this week.  I'm really excited about it because it's about 50 steps up from my current tree...but it's also bittersweet because this was my first tree and I've had it for-ever.  :/  Am I the only one that gets attached to stuff like this?  If I do decide to part with it I plan to donate it so hopefully that helps the decision...

I've seen so many disco balls lately on other blogs and Pinterest.  I decided to jump on the bandwagon.  I found mine on Amazon...the quality isn't great but I didn't invest a lot either (I think it was $15) the sparkle and fun it add to the stacks of gifts under the tree.

Stay tuned...I have a few DIY projects coming up :)  I also plan to share my game plan / bucket list for 2014...I definitely have a few DIY projects I want to tackle in the new year.  

I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
