Inspiration from Anywhere… The Holly and the Ivy

December 22, 2011

I’ll admit it, I had the Christmas carol, Holly and the Ivy, playing while I put this post together. I don’t think you can ever overdo it in the inspiration department, right? I love this classic color combo and there’s something about the berries and the ivy that instantly put me in the holiday spirit. I love the idea of decorating your desserts or garnishing something bubbly with a little holly berry to kick off the festivities. The bright ivy green is a nice alternative to the deeper evergreen for a pretty dress – make sure to top your outfit off with some darling sparkly heels (or perhaps yellow!) to welcome your friends and family during your holiday party!
