Decors Up, Gifts Wrapped, More to go...

On the last two days of our long Thanksgiving holiday, I was so inspired to "Christmasify" our tiny apartment... While on it, I tried making my red velvet cupcakes which I haven't done in a year or so... I wanted to make sure it's still good enough for gifting.  Here are a few pictures...

Our theme... Snowflakes and earthy elements.  I love twigs and branches.

We went for a slim Christmas Tree - I thought it looked more elegant (and practical for a smaller space).
And of course, an angel on top for our little angel.

Pink and Gold color motif, including the wreath.  The bow on the wreath was supposedly for our tree but it was too big for our "sexy" tree, so I put it on our door wreath instead.

If you choose wise, you don't have to spend a fortune for Christmas decors, especially here in the US.  A pack of two of this sparkly snowflake is $1.99 at Target.

Ribbons and tissues and gift boxes from Michael's, my happy place.

I plan to give out red velvet cupcakes for some of my office mates, so I practiced half a batch.  I gave it a little twist by stuffing it with butter cream cheese frosting and topping with cream cheese whipped cream and a small candy cane. :-)

They looked pretty nice in this cupcake box.  So cute.

These gift boxes from Michael's are so convenient.  Great for sweaters and shirts.  We have a few all-wrapped up and under the tree.
