Christmas Countdown

Christmas is almost here and I am so excited! It’s my favorite holiday and seriously, I’ve been planning the festivities since like, June. I don’t do too much decorating in SL for Christmas, simply because  it comes and goes so fast that by the time I get around to finishing a project, it’s time to tear it down again. But, I do love hoarding everything Christmas. And winter. And holidays. No wonder my inventory is so big.

Nevertheless, it’s that time of year and with designers releasing their wares and events such as Tannenbaum and the Arcade introducing their seasonal rounds, there is stuff everywhere!

I’ve played around with yet another tablescape for Christmas. What can I say? It’s a hobby! I’ve been in love with this new French Dining Set from Moss & Mink since it came out and I knew instantly that I wanted to do something elegant for the holidays. The table and chairs both include a hud to change the textures and patterns. In my mind, I pictured something with lots of white and gold, but then I saw this floral pattern for the chairs with blues, greens and reds and that idea went out the window.

My prized decor from What Next and goodies from the up and coming December round of the Arcade round out my holiday dining room and Christmas Feast!

Feast Your Eyes

I always find it funny how on a regular basis, I am notorious for never finishing a decorating project around my sim, yet bring in some themed goodies or all hail the holiday season and I am all a buzz with activity and inspiration. Go figure, right?

All of these new harvest and Fall inspired releases have made me a decorating fiend and anyone who’s ever seen my Pinterest account knows I am a sucker for tablescapes. Not only has the Arcade provided a grab bag full of Fall fun, but Apple Fall has released his new Anashara dining set (a couple of pieces shown above) and What Next has started whipping up some beautiful new Fall decor!

What is your most favorite part about decorating for the holiday seasons?

Love Cara
