Holiday DECOR

19 Dec

Hi Glamouirtes!

Hope everyone is getting prepared for Christmas…now only 6 days away!! Here are some of my favourite holiday decorating inspirations to add some festive cheer to your house. Transforming your home with those cozy touches completes Christmas for me; it brings joy and some sparkle and you can’t help but just smile! Let me know what some of your decor traditions are this time of year  xx Glamour Planner

Poinsettias, poinsettias, poinsettias! The most festive and bright floral plant can create an instantly more dramatic entrance way. These seasonal plants can also been placed around the house for a pop of colour.holidaydecor2

Christmas bulbs are not just for the tree….you can use a thick white string and hang them from your ceiling or chandelier or, as shown here, hang them from in clusters using ribbon. holidaydecor4

Garland or fresh leaf branches from the outdoors make a beautiful display on your mantle, counter, or as part of a table centrepiece. Grab some pine cones, berries or interesting things you may find to add colour and a festive flair.

Taking a wreath {doesn’t necessarily have to be red} add a leather belt or fabric around for a look-a-like Santa belt! Cute for a front door entrance.

A fun and easy way to create centrepieces or decorations is by putting bulbs, beads, cranberries, or any other objects into a vase!holidaydecor6

Another vase centrepiece example – a gold/silver theme. holidaydecor5

The Triple Threat

31 Jul

Hi all Glamourites!

I figured after all this time I should finally post some of my own pictures from an event I recently held.  I must also give my Mom a lot of the credit (food & decor purchasing) for this particular party but we work well together throwing fun gatherings for friends and family! For this evening we went with the “Triple Treat” theme being WINE, CHEESE & CHOCOLATE. How can you go wrong with that? Here are some pictures of our food table and decorations. Hope you enjoy and are inspired to do some entertaining of your own  xx Glamour Planner

IMG_1523I have seen this done in magazine’s and on Pinterest of course…using wine bottles as individual vases for flowers. I wanted to spray paint them but ran out of time and in the end, I like the natural uniqueness of each bottle. It also suited our “Wine,Cheese & Chocolate” theme.

We found some adorable chocolate/dessert paintings, more books on chocolate and fun accent gift baskets to line the staircase as our guests entered the house.

Knock Knock

17 Jul

Hi Glamourites!

I feel that choosing the right door or threshold for a home gives your guest an impression of what style to expect or possibly captures their interest for what lies beyond. A door can be incredibly personal, especially these days as you can choose so many different colours, styles, shapes, materials and much more. It is the first step in creating the excitement of coming to a new house, observing the doorway and imagining what is behind, piquing the interest of what the interior will look like. Doors can be all about creating a welcoming and beautiful entrance to your home.

DOOR KNOB: the first thing you will most likely look for on a door as well as touch. This beautiful rustic gold knob against the teal coloured door creates a fantasy vibe that makes you excited for what is ahead!

Using glass as the main material for this door is a little more of a daring move but will pay off in the end! They are a little more upkeep with cleaning but it creates gorgeous ornamentation.  doorinteriorIf you are wanting to have something completely unique this is a great option! This door is completely glass but a mosaic of all different colours creating a beautiful array of colours reflected in the entrance.
doorlightYes, I am a girl who loves her PINK. Guilty. Truly though this door is the perfect colour between obnoxious hot pink and a too subtle pale rose. Of course the handle accessory is a masterpiece of its own.
