It's creeping up on the most magnificent time of the year, isn't it? December and Christmas are just around the corner. Whichever religion you celebrate, the Winter holidays celebrate peace, fellowship and are generally accompanied by sparkly things. I don't know about you, but I love sparkly things!
On that note, Holiday decorations are probably the prettiest all year, and there are cards, gifts, and food to get creative with!
This year, unfortunately, will be spent trying to decorate a college dorm room. I'm not sure how many of you have spent time in these cells, but they are difficult to decorate while remaining functional on a college student's budget.
Nonetheless, what sort of holiday preparations is everyone else making? Any holiday decorating/baking/craft ideas to share?
Also, since it's already snowing here, what of Lolita Winter fashions? Anything to share?
My house is decorated with various whimsical Christmas bits. My mother is obsessed with the Krinkles collection:
This image is from their website, but we have these same stockings on our mantle.
In addition, my mother and I are living in a new neighborhood with an established tradition of a traveling Christmas party. Families go from house to house for different foods, snacks, and desserts, depending on that house's designation. We chose to serve desserts, so I am eager to learn and try out new Christmas recipes for desserts!
Those stockings are cute! Festive and eclectic ^_^
The traveling Christmas party sounds like a wonderful idea, I wish I had a neighborhood like that! You will definitely have to tell us what sort of desserts you serve!
