Finally :)

My Christmas decorating project is halfway done, the curtain headers and door decoration are done. Actually i haven't done so much but it took me 7 hours to do this much. I don't have garlands, but we have an old Christmas tree so i just used the elements to make them look like garlands.Its not easy to make it but this is all i have now, i just have to be creative. Well i thought not to put the tree up because i have no place for it.

Well, my motif hasn't changed. In fact i think its been the motif for the last 8, lilac,peach with light gold.they look really classy but having it for too long just don't feel right to me now. i promised myself to box them well after Christmas i will surely invest on a new motif next year.With the home improvement in place, i think id just root for the traditional colors red gold and green. What more they are actually easier to collect and cheaper.

So, that's it for 2 small windows, 1 bigger window, and 2 doors. i tried to save flowers as much as i can because i still want to put a lantern, with the same motif, and a table tree just like last year, I'm also planning to arrange the remaining balls into a tree shape just like what i saw in Singapore but i don't know if i can because that means gluing it and i can't, because glue will ruin the balls.

Lets just see how the 2nd installment of the Christmas decoration project will go.

I'm feeling really festive right now, with the good news October left me. Thank God im so Blessed.

UPDATE: The second Installment only comprises of some minor lighting decorations outside the house.  bought some cheap led christmas lights down town.
