New Years Eve DIY – A Simple Cocktail Display

BeFunky_IMG.jpgIMG_2.jpg IMG_3.jpgIMG_4.jpg IMG_5.jpgIMG_6.jpg IMG_7.jpgIMG_8.jpgThe idea for a beautiful cocktail display actually came from this Restyled Cart that Elsie Larson posted last year (on my birthday!). Since then, I have been adamant on the idea of displaying our collection of alcohol and glassware in a unique and creative way.

We actually had a similar vintage cart to Elsie’s, and so I immediately turned ours into a similar little mini bar. However, after about two months we desperately needed the space back in our kitchen and so my cocktail cart went away. That is, until I had a brainwave to move our bar sky-high. After removing our cupboard doors, I wallpapered the interior of our new cocktail space. Then, I filled it with our best glassware, an apple dish full of sugar, and hung one of my favourite bottle openers. If you are planning on throwing a shindig for New Years, then a trendy cocktail display is definitely a must-have!

Have a safe and happy New Year!! See you in 2014!!! :-)))

A Visit to the Enchanted Forest.

IMG.jpgIMG_2.jpg IMG_5.jpg IMG_6.jpgIMG_7.jpgIMG_8.jpg IMG_3.jpgIMG_10.jpgEvery year my husband and I drive to the Enchanted Forest for the Christmas light display. Although it doesn’t change much from year to year, I still look forward to this tradition (much like that of our river boat cruise). This year, Geoff picked me up from work at 9 pm, then we drove to McDonalds for a quick drive-thru supper. After we ate, we headed to the Forestry Farm to see the light show. With full bellies, a warm truck, and a beautiful display, I was so happy and feeling very festive.

I wish that Christmas could always feel like this. I wish that we could resist the stress that usually surrounds this time of year and instead only feel peaceful, warm, full, and the tiniest bit drowsy. Well, I wish that for myself at least. :-)))
