I'm excited! The parties are starting!
If you haven't heard there is a week of Christmas Parties for all to join! Today's party is hosted by Debbie of Debbiedoos and is the Holiday version
of the Magazine Copy Cat Party she host's each month!
I one again choose a photo from my favorite magazine Country Living
This is from Dec/Jan 2012 issue
I found a crate at a church sale this past year and knew I could do this copy cat but put my own twist to it to suit my decor
Wanting to use what I had and purchase as little as possible this is my version
I gathered items I had and realized I could go with the red, white and bronze colors. I also wanted more pop so choose the red paper filler ($1 at Dollar Tree) instead of the excelsior they used
The only new ornaments purchased this year were the red trees (3 for $1 @ Target), the white heart ($1 Target) and the reindeer ($2 Target)
Since I will use these decorations again and again, I think for a total of $5 this copy cat was a bargain
I hope you will stop by Debbie's and check out the other copy cats. Tomorrow the theme will be mantels! I don't have a mantel but have improvised and will still join in. It's the spirit of the season that counts and since we all love to share our homes decorated in their Christmas best these parties are a great way to do that!
