Who doesn’t love getting homemade cookies? 🙂 The girls and I baked some gluten-free gingerbread cookies, and got this cute jar at the Ace Hardware store in our town. You can also buy it on Amazon. I tied the jar with an orange ribbon and some glittery leaves from the craft store. They also have inexpensive gift boxes at the craft store that would work too, lined with some paper.
I love using non-traditional colors in my house year round, and especially for Christmas, like this orange ribbon (above). Orange is my favorite color, and I pepper it around my house. It’s in my area rug, pillows, tablecloth, Le Creuset, drawer knobs, oven mitts, and more.
Here are some of the orange decor photos on Pinterest that have been inspiring me lately:
I love this dining room.
And this one too.
And this awesome wreath.
So I Googled “how to dry oranges” and found these instructions.
I’m definitely going to dry oranges slices now. If I get some good photos after we decorate with them, I’ll share them with you 🙂
