Christmas Tree...Paris-Style!

I'm dashing out the door for date night with "husband!" Here's What I'm Wearing...A grass green cable knit sweater--Gloria Cotton, by Lilly. The skirt is a cute pink corduroy with green palm tree motif; ivory tights and gold leather Revas. My ponytail is adorned with a pink grosgrain ribbon bow; my earrings are monogrammed pendants and my watch is the Oyster Perpetual, by Rolex. Of course, I wearing my Cartier roll ring wedding band and my fragrance of choice tonight is Lilly Wink! My pocketbook is a canvas tote by Ralph Lauren.

Love, love the gold leather Revas...

This tree is in my den...another work in progress! It's decorated with Paris-themed ornaments. I love all the ornaments, but I believe next year I'm going to try to find a black tree or maybe just use a white tree. If you saw this tree in person, it's real cute, but the ornaments don't really stand out on a green tree:-(

I'm becoming a gingham-holic!

The Eiffel Tower ornaments...


Several years ago I bought tons of these handmade French-y ornaments on Ebay.


Paris fleur de lis ornaments...


Fleur de lis and Eiffel Towers...


Santa in France...


Harlequin ornaments and black toile ribbon...


Black toile and black and white gingham fabric around the base of the tree...

A black gift bag prissed up with black toile tissue paper, an Eiffel Tower gift tag {designed by my talented friend Teresa Jane} and of course, a black and white gingham bow!


Solid black wrap and a cute harlequin ribbon bow...

Another gift bag in black toile, with solid black tissue paper and a black and white gingham bow...

I'll be back soon with more Christmas decoration photos from "The Roost."

You are cute as Christmas! I need those gold Revas too. My silver ones got me through the spring and summer but I now seem to be wearing more gold.
Love your Paris tree.
Hugs,
Sue

Kathie Truitt said...

Whew! You 'sceered' me. When I saw the title "Christmas Tree - Paris Style", I'm thinking 'Oh, my! Will the tree be wearing a bikini and have little chihauhau ornaments all over it." But then it hit me - Miss Janice is talking about Paris, France. Not Paris Hilton.

I need to start going through the checkout line that doesn't have tabloids.

Melissa @ The Inspired Room said...

Love the gingham and b&w packages, it is all so pretty!

Teresa Jane said...

First, I loved Kathy Truitt's comment about what she thought your tree was going to be. What a hoot! Yes, everything lovely as usualy...my one HUGE tree is all I have but doesn't compare to the likes of Miss Janice, the designer of all things Christmas trees. Girlie, you're too much. Love ya, mean it.
