Oo la la Just because

I had a really depressing week, do you ever get on of those where it seems nothing is going right?I was changing over my decor from Fall to Christmas and I love both holidays and can't wait when each one comes.I can't wait to decorate and bring out all the warm Fall colors,then switch out to all the brights of Christmas.

But during this change out I got to some deep thinking how the seasons change and our lives just stay the same.The days just blend from one to another and become rote doing the same routine everyday

I wanted a little Ooh lala  just for me before the hustle of the Holidays were upon us.

So I decided to host a Girls night out party with fun makeup some glam and while we're at it lets dream of going to Paris why not? 

I had seen these shoes at Pier one for Halloween and thought I could turn them into napkin rings. then Walmart came out with their Christmas stash and they offered these wonderful little shoe ornaments how cute are they?Well I am not into shoes honestly I own three pairs but these were just to cute to pass up 

So my table of girls glam started to take shape in my mind and I decided to make a change in my life just like the seasons and added alittle excitement and polish before The baking,the shopping,the wrapping the decorating the spending. before it all begins 

My centerpiece was a three tiered cake stand with this lovely silhouette, some eiffel towers
some pearls and of course some feather boas.


                                                  The good china came out come on its a glitzy night

 I found this gorgeous pink beaded shawl at GW and knew it would go on my table It is so delicate and soft looking.
for a charger I copied pics of the Eiffel Tower on line printed them stained them with a tea dye to get them old and sepia looking put them in an old frame I had and started my stack of dishes with them.
Here is my shoe collection aren't they just too cute? don't know what I am going to do with them after my glam table but I'll figure it out.

Each place setting had it's own special shoe and coasters of mirrors(for compacts) and nail polish and some,some makeup treats that each guest could take home.

I switched out the white lace napkins for pink satin just to add a little more glam

With the Holidays here sometimes we have to take the time and do something special for ourselves. Soon we will be doing so much for others we get lost in the shuffle.we all have busy lives and our roles as Mothers ,teachers, nurses, cooks, providers whatever you do for others in the space of your day take even just a few seconds of day to relax, take a deep breath and breathe in all the goodness the universe has for you. when you can recharge your own batteries you are then much more able to help someone else. Reach out to someone this Holiday and just tell them you love them give them a smile it is the greatest gift we can give another. God bless all of you  I hope your Holidays begin with Love and Joy. And I hope you too can add a little glam to your life. this little table was fun and gave me the energy to start my holiday fully charged.I will be joining Between naps on the porch, Just the scoop come join us. See you there Susie

  2. I love the pink and the black with all of the glitz and glamor. We must be on the same brain waves. I have been thinking of a pink and black glamor table for a while. Yours turned out so pretty, I will have to get up to Walmart and see if I can find some of those glitzy silver shoes.
