I broke down and bought a larger Christmas tree this year because the other one was a disaster. This tree is so much better and bigger and it comes pre-lit. Thank goodness for pre-lit trees; that was always the least favorite part of decorating a tree.

My lovely Mom and ready for our family Christmas party

This is the easiest wreath to put together. I went to a dry cleaner last year and bought a whole bunch of bags. I then cut the bags into straps and tied them to a wire hanger. My Mom and I made a few last year and they looked great.

Those carmels look delicious.

I don't really bake but I really like this idea.

I think my Mom and I will make a few of these this weekend.

I love this tree skirt from Anthropologie but I don't want to spend $178.00 for a tree skirt. Do any of you know where I can find a fun tree skirt similar to this one?

For those of you that don't have plans tonight you should come check out Crafeteria. Frances Vintage hosts the event in there parking lot; usually there's 30 or more vendors and all the shops are open to browse.
