giddy? yup! pink, sweet-toothy, retro holiday decor

giddy? yup!
{things that make me giggly joyous}
yes, of course, there is much in life that makes me especially glee-ful! but today "the giddy" goes to the...

we'll have a pink christmas at

the plaza hotel's eloise-inspired betsey johnson christmas tree via

fell in love with this tree when i saw it at macy's last year.  love the non-traditional christmas colors. and most certainly the yummy treats theme just spoke to my inner sweet tooth. well, maybe it was more like a high-pitched squeal than a "spoke." and maybe it wasn't so much "inner" either. thankfully, my mitten-in-mouth trick helped create a semi-soundproof barrier.

but before that macy's tree, i discovered my all-time favorite look by danielle thompson.

which certainly prompted me to create my own danielle thompson-inspired pom-pom wreath last year.

and with the help of my good friends (homegoods, tjmaxx, macy's, and target) last fall + winter--and some cupcake ornaments thanks to my sis-in-law, bro, and nephs, i was able to get my own candy-colored christmas started.

this year i was able to find even more. thanks again to my old friends (homegoods, tjmaxx, and target) with some new holiday friends (kohl's, big lots, walmart, and tuesday morning).

here is part of my totally sweet collection. by the way, the jolly rancher and smarties candy canes are so tasty yum-yum and fit the color-scheme splendidly.

i really want a pink or white tree this year, but am willing to compromise on perhaps a semi-flocked tree. 

{dearest, dearest, most dearest st. nick, not sure you'll get to reading my blahg in time, but i've been real good this year :) and if you hook me up, forget those baked goods. like i said, the jolly rancher and smarties candy canes are de-lish. they are also delightfully travel-friendly, and could possibly even be non-perishable. you're welcome, santa... and thank YOU. }

  1. I love that you do your "giddy? yup!" posts! I have something really similar that I call "pumped up!" b/c I get so ridiculously excited about random things that I have to share!
