A Practically Perfect & Pink Christmas

Merry Christmas Gents & Dolls! I hope you're having an awesome holiday. This is my 3' Christmas tree. I went with a Shabby Chic, Victorian theme this year. Shabby Chic is something old, something new that "looks old", Victorian & very PINK. Shabby Chic started in Great Britain. I thought about Victorian dollhouses & miniatures when choosing ornaments. I chose frilly lace dresses, pink roses, frosted cupcakes, victorian mirrors, eyelet gowns, ballet slippers, glitzy snowman & such. All decorations were purchased second hand from eBay except for the Anthropologie mouse & frosted cupcakes from Macy's. I ordered a "baby" pink ballet tutu for the tree skirt. I've never had a pink Christmas. It turned out quite charming. :)
I'm having cornish hens, wild rice and asparagus for dinner. We had a really big Thanksgiving so I'm keeping it simple for Christmas. Plus, I've been going out to eat. I baked chocolate cupcakes w/ vanilla frosting and dressed them up with pink tutus & embellished wreaths. I found these in a shop called The Polka Dot Shop on Etsy. She makes really pretty things. I thought they were festive and added a touch of elegance to an ordinary cupcake.

Keeping with the pink theme, my Christmas pajamas are from Talbots. I immediately fell in love with the prancing reindeer, Christmas trees, ornaments and partridges in this set. They're very silky & soft. They're "grown-up" Christmas PJs. HaHaHa They're sold out though :(.

I purchased this sassy holiday mug from Miss Fluff on Society 6. She has the cutest designs. This particular mug is called Candy Cane Martini Pin Up Girl! I thought it would be fun to drink hot chocolate out of. Those are pink peppermint marshmallows. You can get those from Sucre.

I made a quick GIF of some of my Christmas gifts. Lots of BEAUTY-ful cosmetics and things to wear! I must've been a good girl! HaHaHa I'll share them with you later on the blog. Still on holiday schedule, my next post will be Friday. Just wanted to quickly stop in and say Merry Christmas. I'll be catching up on your posts the next two days.

Ah, you are blogging too! :) Merry Christmas, darling. Your decorations look adorable and I do like those cupcakes! I'm in a middle of cooking as we speak. :) We decided against dinner, so it's more of a pick and mix kind of meal. Lots of food, though. I will be rolling out of the door tomorrow provided I can even squeeze through it in a first place. :)
