Confession? I decorated my home for Christmas the first weekend after Halloween. My goal for that weekend was to organize and clean, but I ended up decorating it as well (easiest way for me to keep the house organized too, because it looks so pretty). And I’ve been saving those photos to publish now, that is basically Thanksgiving, a.k.a. the time of the year you can decorate your house for Christmas and not be considered “too soon.” Of couse I ruined that by telling you I decorated a month ago!
I thought about having a theme, but all I managed was to match all colors. The scheme is bright: pink, green, blue, and silver… I quite love it, and the ornaments I bought ended up matching perfectly. I didn’t mean to end up with a Disney-themed tree, but well, it kind of happened. It looks beautiful though, so I guess if I had to guess what theme my decor is, would be a Disney candy shop I guess! Here are some more pictures:
I love Easter. Easy one of my favorite holidays, just because of the sheer amount of treats involved in it. And all the pastel colors and cute baby animals, of course. But one think I miss greatly from Easter “traditions” in Brazil is the exchange of big chocolate eggs. So to not feel lacking this year, I made my own chocolate egg. I bought the plastic molds for them on Amazon, and got creative. For the egg, I put crunch mix-ins on the inside, for the wow factor. And I also made a bunch of bombons to stick inside the eggs, in this case, an army of penguins (this mold was from Christmas). But to make the penguins a little bit more special, I added crunch mix-ins and other decorations on their bottom. I also made some peanut-butter heart cups. And to top it all off, I bought some pink candy melts and made a few roses. Happy Easter!
