Christmas Has Begun…

…well the shopping has begun!  πŸ˜‰

I wanted to share the new Christmas decor I bought, so far, for this year.  I wanted to add Turquoise to the mix this year.  So I will be using, Gold, Bronze & Turquoise and probably a little bit of white.  I’m in love so far.  Just can’t wait to start to put together everything in our home.

I bought all of this from HomeGoods….my BFF!!!  I love the sparkly bronze and the simmering brushed gold candles.  I just have to find the right Turquoise colored candle now.

I bought lots of Turquoise ornaments and even some Bronze & Gold ones too.  I love those star burst looking ornaments to the left of the picture.  We will see where they end up.
Here is the gorgeous cake plate I found at HomeGoods.  It was just the right size for the candles.  This will be the centerpiece on the Dining Room table hopefully.  Praying it turns out the way I envision it to look.
Here is a close up of some of the glass Turquoise ornaments.  The colors are more Turquoise in person.  They read a little more green in these pictures.  I was having a hard time with the lighting that day.  I have two boxes so some of them will be going on the tree and some else were, but I haven’t decided where yet.
Look at these lovelies!  Beautiful turquoise glass ornaments.  I bought these in two sizes.  They are prettier in person.
I couldn’t resist these fun bronze starbursts.  I also bought them in gold.  Three in a pack, so I have six total.
This piece I just couldn’t resist.  We will put it in our Family Room downstairs, since our Christmas tree is upstairs in our Living Room.
Here is what it looks like up-close.  There are clear LED lights on the inside so it lights up.  It looks pretty cool when it’s lite up.
Now my shopping trip turned to Target & Michael’s
Check out these gorgoues gold & bronze ornaments.  I can’t wait to hang these up.

Some Turquoise & Gold Icicles and beads.  They will probably go on the tree and some of the beads will probably go on the Dining Room table.

Small Turquoise ornaments will be used for filler maybe, or the tree or even hanging from my chandlier.  I haven’t decided yet.

Ribbon for the ornaments for the chandlier & front Living Room window.  Bronze on one side, gold on the other side.  It’s gorgeous!  Thanks Michael’s.

Here is the break down…

2 gold candles = $4.99 ea. – HomeGoods
2 bronze candles = $3.99 ea. – HomeGoods
1 white candle = $5.99 ea. – HomeGoods
Cake stand = $12.99 – HomeGoods
Christmas Tree = $39.99 – HomeGoods
Ribbons = $.99 ea. {sale} – Michael’s
Gold/Bronze Ornaments = $5.00 ea. – Target
Turquoise & Silver Ornaments = $7.00 – Target
Turquoise & Gold Icicles = $2.00 ea. – Target
Turquoise & Gold Beads = $2.00 ea. – Target

Grand Total = $120.89
Total if you take away the Christmas tree = $80.90

So for a whole new look this year, I ONLY spent $80.90.  I already have lots of gold & bronze ornaments at home from last year.  So this years ornaments are just supplimenting what I already have.  Not too bad for a whole new look with the Turquoise this year.  Now in the future, I have a lot of different colors to choose from because I already have red, green, gold, bronze, silver & turquoise ornaments & decor.  Nice!!!

This year, I want to hang some of those pretty glass ornaments from the front window in our Living Room with the gorgeous ribbon I just bought.  I can’t wait to put it all together.  Plus every year I hang ornaments from our chandlier, but this year they are going to be even nicer with the ribbon.

So has anyone else bought new Christmas decor for this year?  Where did you shop?  Get some great prices?  Let’s hear it ladies!!!  Leave a comment and share your details.  I want to hear it all!!!

Thanks for stopping by everyone!!!  Have a great day!!!  :)

    Thanks Latoya. I will be set now for years to come with all the colors I have now. I am not the kind that changes her Christmas decor every year. I like to work with what I have for the most part, but I do love to change the Christmas colors up from year to year. So now I can do that with all the color I have. πŸ˜‰ Thanks for stopping by. :)

    Hi! I found your blog while reading a couple comments on YHL, and I just had to comment on this post. Aqua/turquoise is one of my favorite colors!! I love that you are incorporating it into your Christmas decor! It's going to be just beautiful! I wish I was going to be able to decorate for Christmas this year…but with the way our reno is going, we might be cutting it close.

    Happy Thanksgiving…
