Christmas Decorating 2012 : Red & White

So, my twitter page and Facebook timeline was flooded with different emotions, from shock to disappointment due to the loss of PacMan to Marquez. I must admit, I am not a boxing fan but I felt weak when I saw a photo of Pacquiao knocked out, lying face down. I sure hope he’s OK. 


Ever since I moved here in Dubai, I never had a “proper” Christmas celebration. I don’t know. I guess it’s because I always felt that this is not my home. I barely hear Christmas songs played on the radio. (or maybe I’m not tuned in long enough?) This year, I want a change. I want to decorate the apartment. 

Last year I was back in the Philippines and once again I was able to celebrate Christmas like we used to. I put up the tree, decorated the house, cooked food and entertained kids. LOTS of kids. I had so much fun and I want Blake to experience the same.

So this year, I am turning to Mr. Google and Ms. Pinterest for some inspiration.

So obvs, it’s going to be a red and white Christmas theme (with a slight hint of green). I’m on the scout for really cheap decors. The plan is to wear something red/white on Christmas eve with our Santa hats on and have some fun with the camera. 
What’s your theme this year?
I know I’m late. I have to get this done this week!

    Awww. This is good to hear. Please post pics once you’re done decorating.

    No Christmas for us this year. 🙁 We’ll be busy packing and unpacking. Oh well… a nomad’s life.
