Today I made up a Christmas centrepiece for the coffee table in the lounge room. I collected some pine cones and spray painted them gold, I then arranged some artificial ivy leaves in a rustic timber box, arranged the pine cones evenly around the box, along with some vine, green silk orchids, gold and red baubles, and a Christmas tea light holder in the centre. Only took about 20 minutes from start to finish, and adds a Christmas touch to the loungeroom.
I have been busy with some other Christmas projects today as well, and will post about these tomorrow. I also made up some rocky road, caramel fudge and more chilli jam for Xmas gifts, and will finish the packaging of the last few gifts tomorrow after I have made the onion jam. Went out tonight for dinner for our BIL's 50th birthday. Bought him a nice (and very expensive...thought it should be special being such a milestone) bottle of Penfolds port. Had a nice relaxing night. Have a few last minute things to do nice and early tomorrow morning, and then I won't need to hit the shops again until after Christmas.
