Christmas Ornaments for next year!

This year I decided that for next year I wanted to re-do our Christmas tree with new colors and ornaments. Luckily I've been able to find a bunch of pretty ornaments on sale half off that are exactly what I was looking for.

The color scheme I've chosen for next year's tree is bronze/brown, hot pink, teal and lime green. I bought some beautiful brown and bronze ornaments at Target a few years ago and I love them so that is where I started. I love leopard print right now and I plan on adding some leopard ribbon to the tree as well.

Here are some of my new ornaments. The blue is actually teal but the coloring came out strange when I took the pic.

I can't wait to see how it all turns out.

Here are some pics of the wreath I have on my front door. It's on loan to me from my mom. She made it, isn't is beautiful?! She has a brown one that I want for next year...if she will add some pink, teal and green to it for me. :)

By following Dina's blog I found an awesome little store in North Richland Hills called Golightly's. I could spend an hour there just trying to look at everything. I was lucky enough to attend the open house Dina had in her home right before the holidays and I LOVE her house. I want her to come decorate my new house when I move. Please Dina please! hahaha

Anyways, I found this beautiful mistletoe there and had to have it. I love it, it's my favorite Christmas decoration that I've gotten this year.

I hit the jackpot on Mary Engelbreit ornaments to match my kitchen.

Miniature coffee mugs! Too cute!

It was easier to take pictures of the teapots in their packaging.

Look, you can see me in the reflection!

I also found some cute scrapbooking stickers on clearance that I plan on turning into ornaments. You will have to wait until next Christmas to see how the turn out!

These stickers are for the girls tree. I love the little pink birds.

These are for my kitchen. Besides the Mary Engelbreit ornaments, I want to add baking ornaments as well as peppermint candy ornaments.

Found these at Walmart for $1.50 each. They have scented hand soap in them but I plan on pouring them out and cleaning them so they don't go bad in storage. I can refill them with soap next year.

For Anthony's room I want to get him a white Christmas tree and decorate it with nothing but Longhorn ornaments! Hook Em Horns! He has Longhorn bedding so it should look pretty nice!

Aaron found these stocking at Albertson's for only $2.50 so he got one for him and one for Anthony. He also got a Longhorn Santa hat to wear next year as well. We have a pretty good little ornament collection for his tree.

And that is all for now. I am finally all caught up on blogging yay!

Now I just need help planning out trip! We are looking to go to Europe in April. We will be flying into Paris and also leaving from Paris. The major cities in our plan are London, Paris (obviously) and Amsterdam. Any suggestions or recommendations are greatly appreciated!!
