Last Minute Holiday!

Hi Friends:

With Christmas just around the corner, we thought you could use a little last minute inspiration. From decorating to entertaining, here are some quick and simple ideas to put the finishing touches on your holiday. If you are on top of things and ready to go, save these ideas for next year!
Many of us exchange ornaments or use them to decorate packages. These snowflake ornaments were made by cutting out circle motifs from an old crochet tablecloth. Just dip in fabric stiffener and let dry. Lace tablecloths work well, too; look for them at thrift stores.
We are in love with bottle brush trees! How about this Christmas tree farm displayed on a vintage silver tray! 
Yup, we're obsessed! Who can resist a vintage toy car with a bottle brush tree tied to the top?
Tuck a mini poinsettia into a sugar bowl for a little holiday cheer.
Do you have more people coming for dinner than your tableware can accommodate? No problem, mix and match; it will look modern and interesting at the same time. After all, no one dresses from head to toe in one brand, right? 
Giving a gift card? Here's a great way to present it. Buy a chocolate bar and wrap it with a printed snowman image. Using bits of fleece, add a hat and scarf. Tuck the gift card under the wrapper and voila!
For sipping hot cocoa or filling with candies, we love these snowman cups for the little ones from Blue Cricket Design. All you need are styrofoam cups with lids, orange felt and paint!

Friends, we've so enjoyed sharing our vintage finds and every-day inspirations with you this year. From all of us here at Georgia's, we wish you and yours a wonderful holiday and a happy and healthy new year!
