Christmas Has Begun…

…well the shopping has begun!  😉

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!!!  :)

Weekend Bloggy Reading

Let’s Go Shopping…

….with Sabrina Soto at Target.  I love Sabrina Soto from HGTV, so why wouldn’t I want to go shopping with her at Target.  Love it!!!  Some great ideas for some great prices.

Check out this cute looking Beverage Dispenser in Blue.  For $16.99, it would be a great addition to your summer BBQ’s or Parties!!!

Green Geometric 12-pc. Melamine Dinnerware Set @ $21.99.

Love this Blue Floral Soft Square Melamine Serving Tray 14″ for $9.99.  There is also a 19″x13.5″ tray for $11.99 and a Pitcher and Beverage Dispenser for $13.99.  They also have plates & cups to go with this whole set.  Such a great set together.

This Steel Beverage Tub in Blue (16″) is great @ $14.99 for your bottled or canned drinks.

Steel Utensil Caddy in Blue @ $9.99 is a great deal to hold all of your utensils and some napkins.

This awesome Mini Flower Runner {14″x36″} is a great addition to your summer time table inside or out.  It’s out of stock right now on Target’s site, but it might be instock in their stores.  I love blue & green together.  It’s summery and it’s soothing.  How awesome would all the other stuff look on a table with this runner.

For $11.99 for the set of 6 Yellow Swirl Kitchen Towels or the Blue Geo Print {26″x16″}, is a great addition to any summer time kitchen.  Style and a pop of color, what more could you ask for.

Here are some other sets of Melamine to check out at Target.

Here is Target’s Calypso series.  What great colors and great patterns.

I took some screen shots from HGTV’s site of some of the stuff that is sold at Target.  It’s great to get some inspiration for table settings.  I hope you enjoy the eye candy.  Sorry some of these pictures aren’t great, it’s because they were in a video and I was just grabbing screen shots of the table settings.  I hope it gives you some great ideas for your summer parties this session.

Here is the Geometric plates I posted above.  What a bright pop of color for a summer table setting.

Here Sabrina was talking about making easy kids settings for the table.  The napkin ring in this picture is of a candy necklace.  LOVE IT!!!

Here they used a bunch of different Melamine place settings.  What a great way to bring all the colors together on the table.  Yellow table cloth, blue runner…..mix and match it ladies!!!  What a fun place setting.  Great for a kids party, a weekend BBQ or even a outdoor bridal or baby shower.

This table setting is a little bit more sweet and girlie.  Great for an afternoon party with the ladies to catch up.

Here is Sabrina with the Blue Floral melamine table setting.  Table for 2 outside…..yes please.

Hope you have been inspired by these summer settings.  Does anyone have any summer parties coming up that they might go out and buy some of these things for their party?  Have you been to a party lately that had a great table setting.  Please do share with us.
Thanks for stopping by everyone! Have a great day! I would love to hear your comments, so please leave one if you want. I love sharing and inspiring others, but I also love feed back and sharing of others ideas and thoughts. :)
