Have Yourself A Merry Lilly Christmas!

When it comes to style and most things, I am a pure traditionalist!  With that in mind, I  sometimes go "out of the box"!  Since my kitchen is already a bright green with black and white damask accents, I decided to add a pop of pink to create a Lilly Pulitzer Palm Beach Holiday!  I didn't buy a thing except new ribbon and the pink poinsettia!  The poinsetta was perfect - pink, green and Christmas all for $3.96 at Wal-Mart!  :-)

The green glitter ornament on the adirondack chair is an ormament for Wal-Mart for $1.00!  They come in all colors and are perfect for placing all over and in the bathrooms, tables, etc.  Too cute!  The tree topper is a starfish - could it be anything else?  The tree skirt is a Lilly apron in paradise patch which match the placemats on the table.  Normally, this is all put away until summer but they are just the right touch for Christmas. 

The key west adirondack chair flowerpot perfectly matched the cocoa tin!  The cookies are actually ornaments with the hangers removed.  The pink and green candy canes are actually High School Musical but hey, they match!  The snowflake mugs are Ralph Lauren and I love them.  They were at the outlet in Dillion, Colorado on a ski trip.  A set of four for $14.99!  Bought the matching set of four dessert plates - like I could leave them there!    Not fun getting them home - my carry-on was a nightmare but worth it!
The reindeer is from HomeGoods and is the perfect place to hang Lilly ornaments.

 There is a raised area behind my sink and I love to decorate it as there is a down light above it.

This year Santa takes a holiday!  Yes, that is real sand from Ft. Myers Beach, Florida!  It is so soft and white - like sugar.  I love to play with it!

Here is the beautiful pink poinsettia.  The paper chain is actually Lilly "Celebration Garland".  It sounds so much more refined but to me it is still the quaint paper chains we used to make in school.

The kitchen light was just covered with ribbon and ornaments.  The Partylite Church on the cake plate was found last week at Goodwill for $3.99.  I added some trees from the village and fake snow - I love fake snow and I put it everywhere!  It gives me a daily reminder of the true reason for the season.  Lit up at night it is very pretty. 

The Season's Greetings sign is simply a wine bottle charm and the plates are Ralph Lauren to match the mugs.  The pink plates are from Target Easter collection - I got a set of four of them for $2.00 on clearance.  I mean really - who is really going to buy pink dinnerware.  Lucky for me.

The pink and white damask drape is actually a shower curtain I put up for the holidays.  The tie-back is the Lilly Pulitzer breast cancer silk scarf - it works perfectly and adds a perfect pop of color.  The ornaments are the Lilly Oh Shift! ornaments.  A different set for three years with different patterns - I love them.  I hung them in the patio doors so I could go "window shopping".    (Groan!)  Sorry - couldn't resist!  LOL!

The vintage gossip bench is the perfect place to drop holiday packages.  The large clothes pin is pink and white damask and was on clearance at HomeGoods for $3 and works so well to hold the Christmas Cards!  The magazine holder on the wall is from Hobby Lobby and is awesome!  Half off it was only $17!  Ballard Designs wants so much more for the same thing!  It holds a lot of catalogs and mail!   Yes, the Mickey Mouse head is part of the handmade railing in the kitchen.  I have hidden Mickeys all over my house!  :-)
