Guest Post; DIY Festive Holiday Table Setting

Hi lovelies, Last week I once again got the honors of writing a guest post for Tereza from "Drastic Plastic".  I created a DIY cozy, laid back yet festive table setting post. I also wanted to thank Tereza for writing kind words about me :) Blog on!
First off I started by making a table runner. I discovered that this is one of the easiest things ever to sew. I used a light canvas fabric (use this for hand-cut napkins as well). I find it gives a natural and laid-back feel. Combining this with a sparkly ribbon and you’ve got a good balance between laidback and glam.
Instead of using name tags, make your own personalized wine glass markers that you tie around the stem of the wine/champagne glass. It has a double purpose; wine marker/name place setting.
As a centerpiece use tiny ever greens in terracotta pots. You’ll be able to plant these in your yard after the holidays and enjoy them all year round. As for the lights, I custom made the lights and I am planning on leaving them hanging. It gives a very nice atmosphere.
Finally add some candles, Et Voila!! Your festive, yet laid back table setting is ready to welcome your guests! Hope you enjoyed my DIY post! XO

Gift ideas for the 25th

Shopping season actually began last week after thanksgiving (but who needs an excuse anyway?). I must say that since I'm not going back home and just spending christmas in Amsterdam with close friends, I don't have to buy many presents, but it shouldn't hurt surfing the web for inspiration. Below are some of my picks for "that certain person". Maybe you even get some ideas :)
The books
Personal gifts
The gadget
To share with friends

Home Decorating; Incorporating color

Ok, so I'm guessing it might be clear that I love a lot of color. Actually our bedroom is all white, with accent colors. I recently hung this picture of my boyfriend and I at Santa Monica Pier on our LA trip. I enhanced the colors and it just "pops" (it was a accidental spontaneous picture that actually came out great). The perfect addition to our blank walls. Downstairs in the living room I hung lights (I call them picnic light), they create a wonderful atmosphere. I also got 2 little cacti with pink and orange tops! I love them :) and they fit nice with my serape, my souvenir from LA, Olvera Street. What do you think??
