Happy Friday and Welcome to December! If you don’t follow Connecticut in Style on Instagram (click HERE to see my IG feed), I want to use this blog post to clue you in on my 25-Day Advent Calendar Challenge. Starting today and for the next 24 days until Christmas, I will be posting photos on Instagram of one new item/activity on my holiday bucket list. Today is Day 1 and the activity is Put Up Christmas Decorations. Yay! Done and done!
I’ll be spending part of the weekend working on Day 2: Make A New Ornament For Your Tree and Day 3: Send A Christmas Card To A Soldier. I hope that you’ll follow my adventures this month and get inspired to create your own holiday bucket list this year. A sleigh ride is on the list and there’s no sign of snow in the forecast. I’m going to have to get really creative for that one. Ha!
We wrapped up the last day in November in style. It’s also the reason that I’m a little late posting this morning. I organized a holiday wreath making party for the Junior League of Eastern Fairfield County’s Provisional Class of members. I’ve been hosting wreath making classes for about 10 years now and it is my favorite way to kick off the holiday season.
One of the best parts of hosting these parties is the pre-party shopping. Everyone emails me an image of a wreath that they would like to make and I shop till I drop. I love every minute of scouting all the local craft stores to find similar wreath embellishments so their image can literally become a reality. It was so much fun and I can’t wait to share some photos!
Have a wonderful weekend xo
