Ho Ho Ho Ho Ho! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

Daydream: Pink Girly-Girl Christmas
Christmas is near and my house is full of holiday cheer with traditional Christmas decor and traditional carols playing softly in the background (none of this Britney Spears make-up-my-own-xmas-carols-crap!)
However, even though our house is decorated in red, green, gold, and silver, I am much more open to contemporary Christmas decor than I am to contemporary Christmas carols!
For instance, wouldn't it be just darling to have a home decorated in pink for the holidays? Even more, wouldn't it be beautiful in the girly dream home I featured here in all it's pink decor delight? LOL
This was my letter to Santa Claus this year:
Please make my boyfriend colour blind for the holidays so he will not notice if the house is decorated from top to bottom in pink.
If my wish came true (which it did not, in case you were wondering) this is what I would do:
I would display pretty pink ornaments on my mantel and drape some more fuzzy white boas...
I would hang pink stockings in anticipation of Santa filling them with sugar plums and pink candy...
All my Christmas trinkets would be pretty and dainty...
I would wish you a Merry Christmas in pink, pink, pink....
I would sit with my fellow girly girls and make pink Christmas crafts while sipping pink champagne and eating pink marshmallowy desserts...
To make the above pink superstar snowflakes:
* Cut small snowflakes from folded paper, using the same technique you learned in grade school.
*Add shimmer with spray glitter and attach a tinsel ornament to the center.
*Hot-glue the snowflakes to purchased silver stars.
*Use one as a tree topper or group them as ornaments to hang on the tree or from a chandelier.
Tell me, what is your Christmas decor style?
What did you ask Santa for this year?
