The Christmas Corner #FairOaksMall

*I received absolutely nothing to compose this post. These words are mine. 
Follow The Christmas Corner on Facebook

There is something in the winter air that sends you willfully down to the dungeon to drag out your cheerful holiday decor. I am gleefully looking forward to decorating the tree, the front door, and to be honest every square inch of my house with natural greenery from the outdoors:) At my recent visit to the Winery at Bull Run, I came across twinkling trees of divine decoration.

The beautiful decorations came from The Christmas Corner. They just opened at the Fairfax Mall and 10% of all holiday sales benefit orphans in Africa, which is the true star on top of the tree. I hope all of you are slowing down to really enjoy this holiday season with your family.
 

From Our Family at the Virginia Blogger's Club to yours Have a very Happy and Safe Holiday Season!


Thank you for being here,

Thanksgiving Decor Made Simple {DIY}

If I am honest with myself Thanksgiving is a holiday that falls after Halloween and before Christmas. I do not have much time to decorate and food is really the priority here....so I came up with a solution. Save your Halloween pumpkins. Buy them late. The smaller pumpkins will stay good for quite some time. After Halloween, you can write Thanksgiving sayings on them. For example, "Say your Blessings", "Give Thanks", or "Gobble Gobble".

Choose a deep-rich color palette and take your time. No need to be Da Vinci:) When you are finished, let the pumpkins dry on their side so the paint does not run. A rustic box is the perfect platform to elevate the finished centerpiece for your guests. Pass the turkey please AND Have a very Happy Thanksgiving from everyone at The Virginia Blogger's Club!
