We tend to think of snow and white when Christmastime comes around. But, we have to admit, that this wide expanse of blue is just the sort of thing we could get used to celebrating. No matter what the backdrop, the good taste of the fabulous Foley & Cox will fill your day with inspiration.

Inspiration is something we could use a little bit of right about now. Usually, we’re pretty much ready for the holidays by this point. We get most of our shopping done by Thanksgiving.

This year, I have done basically no shopping for anyone. (Including myself. I generally end up sneaking a few things for myself in there while I’m shopping for others, so that’s really saying something.)

On the bright side, my little guy has only asked Santa for one thing, and I know EXACTLY what it is!!

That’s cause for celebration, right? Because there is nothing worse than when their little hearts are just pining away for something, and they keep telling every mall/dentist office/dock/toy store Santa that they want it and you have no idea what they’re talking about and neither does Google.

When Google doesn’t know, you’re toast.

But, joyfully, the one special toy has been ordered, and I love shopping for surprises. Five-year-olds are fun to shop for. If only everyone else could be so easy!

And, with twelve days until our first celebration, I got the wild hair to decorate the kids’ table for our first family Christmas celebration. I’ll be posting on Instagram this afternoon when I finish messing with it.

Let’s just say that Meri Meri did not sponsor the table, but they really could have. Santa Party Poppers, reindeer cups, Nutcracker plates, the most adorable placecards ever… Really, it’s just more fun to decorate the kids’ table!

I suspect that it will also be more fun than I’m thinking to do the rest of my Christmas shopping as well. I’m just going to click through one of our latest and greatest gift guides and call it a day!

Or, well, actually…

If the owner of this beauty would like to whisk us off to Paris for the weekend, we think we could easily finish our shopping there. (Or just snag one of these cashmere throws!) We have to say that, of all the good taste of Foley & Cox, we think this might be our very favorite! 

Have you finished your shopping yet? Either way, we hope your holiday season has been merry and bright so far!
