I also have to take the opportunity to showcase my Christmas decorations, even though I completely forgot to take pictures during my actual party. After having the parents haul my box of Christmas stuff all the way from Michigan when they visited me in September, I figured I should actually use them, and that led to me having a party, so people could actually see the decorations.
The lightbox got rigged up with christmas lights in lieu of actually get a real light inside of it.
Seeing as how I don't have a mantel, the bookshelf has to do for holding my stockings. My lion-headed bowls normally are odds and ends collectors, but they made great votive candle holders.
My red and white still-life - the basket was brought back from Rwanda by a friend and the pom-poms were made out of Target bags.
Last year's impulse Christmas tree buy was the feather tree and this year was the glitter tree. Good thing I have closet space - who knows how big next year's will be.
This plant has seen 7 Christmases with me, so I thought it should also get in the holiday spirit.
