i've been collecting and acquiring christmasy odds & ends since they appeared on shelves this season with intentions of creating a festive backdrop for holiday photos. with no snow, tons of palm trees and a #SAHM photo budget, this was essential!
i found sweet felt ornaments, shiny silver jingle bells and sparkling wired star garland at target, the german got the little felt santa basket there too. i picked up this santa-esque faux-shearling trim red velvet blanket @ tj maxx. i acquired the oversized glitter candy canes @ home depot.
then i popped baby L in his sling and got busy DIYing this set. i hung the ornamented garlands from the light fixture above my overstuffed chair. got L all dressed up & started shooting away. stay tuned for family pix & even fun fashiony ones with this backdrop too, should time ever allow. cross your fingers for me please. in the mean time, each time we put L in something festive we'll plop him down here before setting out!
