Most years we have a christmas party here; a brunch or cocktails, a moment to enjoy the house dressed up for christmas and fill it to bursting with friends and family.
This year, although guests have been told the date, I'm a little late sending out my invites. I like to do these by hand, it is no big deal. If I keep to a simple design and use water colours and a metallic pen, I can produce the twenty or so that I need in just a couple of hours in front of the fire . You can see them taking shape in the collage shots below.
I want a fun image that can slip into an envelope, with space to write the invite behind. They may have a ribbon on the top, not sure yet. Working around a christmas tree idea, I have come up with three designs, but can't decide which to choose.
Can you help me please?!
First up, the classic christmas tree, with pink and silver polka dot lights and
standing in a pink bucket ....
second choice, the pink and silver tree, with pink and silver baubles and a ... pink and silver bucket ...
and lastly the third option in grey and gold ...
Opinions are divided in this house,
I have a favourite but I'm not sharing :)
I'd love to know which one, if any, you would choose
PS. Late this evening before I turn off the computer for the night ...
You are quite amazing!
I still won't say which tree I prefer, but I would like to put the records straight about my drinking habits! The little glass does not contain some mysterious French liqueur .... it is simply the glass I was using for washing out my paintbrush :)
And for your questions about the picture of our house in the snow, it was taken last year about this time. So far we haven't had any snow this year, but who knows? maybe for Christmas!
