It’s August! One month closer to autumn. sob..sob..sob
For me, July epitomizes summer and I am not ready to say goodbye so I advocate that July should be 60 days long.
Makes perfect sense. Let’s keep summer around longer. Right?
Funny thing though, yesterday I attended a ‘Christmas in July’ event. I celebrated the holiday with Home Depot® at their 2013 Holiday Preview.
The event was held in the beautiful shop of Bobbette & Belle, Artisanal Pastries – a must visit bakery in the heart of Leslieville, Toronto.
Here is a sneak peek as to what’s hot (no pun intended!) in holiday décor for 2013.
The Winterberry Collection – red, gold and brown. Very classic.
The Metallic Woodland Collection – gold and browns. Very organic.
The Arctic Holiday Collection – silver and blue. Iconic colours with new shapes and designs. Perfect for Hanukkah too.
The Midnight Holiday Collection – chartreuse, charcoal, turquoise and midnight blue.
Oh…..I loved the wallpaper behind the white cabinet in the above photo. Thinking of it for a feature wall in my own home but that’s for another blog!
Of course no holiday is complete without a gift so Home Depot® and Bobbette & Belle sent me home with a goodie. Thank you.
So happy holidays and bring on more summer!!!
I’m a traditional red, green, and gold girl myself, but I Do like that red, gold, and brown.
I’m missing July as well, but there is something to look forward to in all seasons, isn’t there? (for some you just have to look harder!) 😉
True. Autumn is lovely. But summer just seems so short especially this year – rain, cool, rain!
Thank goodness they had silver, now I just need some blue. They look very pretty
Definitely going for gold this Christmas!
I am a gold accessories person when it comes to the holidays too.
Looks like they had some gorgeous things. But Christmas in July? Can’t quite wrap my head around it yet!
Hi Dani. True, I can’t wrap my head around Christmas yet either. I am still trying to deal with “Where did July and August go?”
