Christmas on Etsy

So it may be a little bit early to start talking about Christmas.. but it is my favourite time of year!! I love everything about Christmas, spending time with loved ones, going to Christmas parties, buying gifts and all the decor!! I always make it a rule each year not to decorate until December 1st but that doesn’t mean I can’t shop around and see what is new this year.

Yesterday I was browsing through Etsy to see if I could find any unique or fun Christmas decorations. Here are a few of my favourite I found!

These are Half Pint Frosty White Tree Mason Jars. Mason jars have been really popular the past few years but I have never seen it used in this way. They are super cute and they also come in different sizes. Love them!

il_570xN.394366194_nitlThese Lego Christmas Baubles  are perfect for kids!! I grew up building Lego all the time with my brother so when I found these it brought back some childhood memories!

il_570xN.506567713_at36This Geometric Christmas Tree is made from recycled hard book covers! I love this idea and it is unique so I couldn’t help but share this gem.

Some of these decor items can also be created at home as well. Happy decorating!!

Bridesmaid Gift Bags

Over the last few months I’ve been purchasing items to put into a gift bag for my bridesmaids to give to them when we went wedding dress shopping – and I said yes to my dress!

The colours for our wedding are white & gold with mint/seafoam as the accent colour so I wanted to bring that colour scheme into the gifts and presentation. It was super easy finding gold items but finding the perfect shade of mint proved to be difficult. I had found on Etsy lots of cute bridesmaid invitations so I took a couple of the sayings and made my own cards. One thing I wanted to include in the gift was something that was “so Stephanie”; cupcakes. I found a recipe awhile ago on Pinterest that made 2 vanilla cupcakes so I filled a little mason jar with the dry ingredients & included a card with directions on how to bake them. A few extra little goodies were added, as well as a mini bottle of champagne.

The girls loved their gifts and I’m so excited to have them by my side to help me along the way. Asides from finalizing our DJ, I think the wedding planning will be put on hold until the New Year just because we’re nearing the Holiday season and it’s always such a busy time.

Enjoy your weekend everyone!
