But what is Boxing Day?
–A ‘Christmas Box’ in the United Kingdom is a name for a Christmas present. Boxing Day was traditionally a day off for servants and the day when they received a ‘Christmas Box’ from the master. The servants would also go home on Boxing Day to give Christmas Boxes/presents to their families.
Happy Boxing Day…here’s a “sucker punch” present for you!
My holiday decorating is always inspired by something…usually a food or memory from my youth. Here are a few of my recent trees and the inspiration that made them a reality!

I’ve been collecting milk glass bud vases for years. Let’s face it, every flower looks good in a white vase! Many years ago, I had to do a dinner party on the fly and needed a centerpiece and this magic happened. I’ve been using it ever since. So fast, simple and chic! Step one, remove flowers. Step two, replace flowers with ball ornaments! Boom!
