A Twist on Tradition: Sparkly, Snow-Inspired Holiday Décor


What could ever be better than Christmas?  The fun, the children’s sparkling eyes, the promise of Santa, and, of course, the wonderful traditions.  Like many of our families before us, we hold these traditions, which have been handed down through the generations, close.  Still, even traditions can use a makeover from time to time.  This year, instead of our usual tree, routinely adorned with eclectic ornaments collected lovingly over the years, I have decided to change it up a bit.

Of course, I had sensational options at Coco Blanca.  I have chosen all silver and white trimmings throughout the house, pumping up the glam factor.  Mercury glass silver candlesticks emit a warm glow in the dining room.  A wood fire roars in the living room with stockings hanging over the hearth, waiting anxiously for Santa.  When Christmas morning finally comes, the stockings are stuffed, presents are under the tree, and our boys will be sitting on the stairs, with the dog awaiting the moment. (Some traditions never change!)

Have a wonderful holiday!!
