IKEA Food & Holiday Decoration Collection



I was invited to a Holiday Tea Party at IKEA last Thursday to see their Food & Holiday Decoration Collection. I have to say that it really jump started my holiday spirit! I love the colors of this season, and the warmth that it brings to the inside of the home. I never have candles lit more than at Christmastime!

On the way out I bought a bunch of fun new items to trim the tree, such a these awesome little birds. I love the colors, and the handmade esthetic of many of the ornaments. They are going fast, so I’m glad that I am thinking ahead this year! Although I suppose that with Christmas being NEXT MONTH and all, I’m not that far ahead, am I?! πŸ˜‰

And don’t forget that it’s better to give than receive! This year, between November 4 – December 29, 2012, for every soft toy or children’s book bought, the IKEA Foundation will donate $1 to help fund education projects supported by UNICEF and Save the Children.

Have you started prepping for the holiday season?

    I can’t believe how quickly it is coming this year. I almost thought those were all your presents! although… with two kids, I bet you are not too far off! πŸ˜‰ Great seeing you.

    • Rosa

      Haha! Good to see you too! And again on Thursday!
      Those are definitely NOT our presents! I haven’t even started to shop yet! :O

  • Sheila @ SZInteriors

    I haven’t started prepping yet, but my mind is beginning to kick into gear! I did do a little thrifting the other day, and bought a few vintage ornaments… Pretty soon the decorating will begin! …and I don’t know why my letters won’t capitalize – what key sequence did i hit by mistake??? 😐

  • Sheila @ SZInteriors

    I don’t know What just happened there! My published comment took the capitals, but when I’m typing, it only shows up in lower case! Technology. Double 😐 😐 πŸ™‚

    • Rosa

      Since I switched my blog theme everyone has been saying that there are weird problems like that! πŸ™ I have to email her and see what she can do.

    It was nice seeing you and really fun going through all of the treasures that Ikea has to offer this year. I’m sure not only will your home look beautiful but your presents will be super purdy too. ~ Roadie

    I went to Ikea on SAturday and have to agree – it definitely kick started my holiday design brain! now to implement… πŸ™‚

  • Shannon(8foot6)

    • Rosa

      Hope the weather is nice for the parade! It’s been raining here all weekend, yuck, with no sign of letting up all week. I think it’s time to fly south! πŸ˜‰
