This year for the holiday season I have noticed that there are unconventional ways to make traditional Christmas tree! In this case we have two book cases pushed up against each other. If you have an Expedit book case from IKEA, that work perfectly.
Use hard back books and magazines to make this look!
Where I have also seen unconventional Christmas trees is in CB2's Holiday 2010 magazine. I get them, you get them. What do you do to showcase those Christmas cards from your friends and family? One of CB2's 6-foot high mirrors which they put Christmas cards into a tree. One of my favorite ideas yet I have seen yet. Another idea that CB2 had was a ladder that they decked out as a Christmas tree. Cute idea for a warehouse or a community center or anywhere there are young youth.
In the Real Simple Magazine, they also have a book tree. Although it is smaller, it is great for a buffet or a sofa table where you can enjoy it weather you are sitting on the sofa or simplely walking pass the table.
The picture of the day is of a great holiday party that someone has staged for a photo. This holiday party picture seems more of a Christmas scene than say a New Years? Well anyways, this is the photo of the day because of so many reasons it is not even funny. First are the Tulip chairs with a green seat cushion. Absolutely amazing. This is the first thing I see when I am looking at this picture.
Well anyways, this is the photo of the day because of so many reasons it is not even funny. First are the Tulip chairs with a green seat cushion. Absolutely amazing. This is the first thing I see when I am looking at this picture. They are beautifully accented with a complimentary colour such-as red. The picture as a whole is shown as white, but then you have these pops of color here and there. Bold colors nevertheless. I Google searched "Modern Christmas" to see what would show up and here it is. The second part that I love about this picture are the accessories. Accessories, although subtle, can make or break a room. This room for instance is staged as a dessert party. On the table we have a nice bunt cake(?) and a wrapped up gift. I especially love the curling ribbon coming off the table. It looks very casual as if someone really was having a party there. On the buffet now is a cupcake tower and other types of desserts. But the main focus is that black traditional/modern candelabra. The black of the candelabra picks up from the black of the place mats. Another focal point is that flower chandelier. Personally I don't like it as much as say a cool sputnik pendant. Over all this is a great picture. Totally staged as you can see. But it gives a great representation of a 20- something year-old dessert party in the city.
