Holiday Decorating - Silver and Gold

Hello friends!

Have you ever gone into a panic prior to a party?  Yeah,  I'm pretty much there.  We're still working on the fireplace, and I feel like I can't do anything else until that thing is DONE!  Can't put up the tree until the fireplace is done since it will be in the way!  Can't decorate the mantel until the fireplace is done because I don't HAVE  mantel.  Make sense?

So, my family is bracing for the raving lunatic that will occupy our home for the next 48-72 hours.  It's kind of like I have so much to do, I don't know where to begin, which just causes the stress level to rise even more.  But, it will get done.  It always does.

Here is a sneak peek at the fireplace though.  We have made serious progress, but the mantel has been the bane of our existence.  Suffice to say, there will be no husband and wife DIY blog coming from this house anytime soon.  Unless you enjoy tales of bickering and frustration about mitre cuts and misplaced tools...


Anyway, back to the subject at hand.  Decorating for the holidays.  Earlier this week I blogged about decorating with the traditional red and green, but today we're going to change it up a bit with silver and gold accents.  They're as classic as red and green, and take things up a notch in the elegance department if you ask me.

  2. Oh Jenny - the fireplace looks amazing!!!!!! I love what you've done with it so far, it makes me want to jump in the car and go get some lumber and do something with mine finally!!! Gorgeous, and it will all be worth the headache.
    I say, forget the mantle for a few days, clean your house, gussy up your foyer & kitchen and front door, and finish this project after the party!! Everyone will be completely blown away by this project even if it's not done!
    You are really knocking out some big things lately! I'm totally inspired by you.
