The Twelve Days of Decorating

Christian Ursino and I wrote this little ditty last year, and I think it's the perfect time to ressurect it for the holiday season:

The Twelve Days of Decorating

Instead of rehashing the same old holiday decorating tips again and again (okay, okay... here’s your tip: just use candles – lots of them!), we thought it would be more fun to lighten up and celebrate the season with a group sing-along. So pour yourself a hot cocoa or a hot toddy and get ready to sing The Twelve Days of Decorating.


~ On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me a bright shiny crystal chandelier.



~ On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me, 2 accent pillows and a bright shiny crystal chandelier.


~ On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me, 3 pillar candles, 2 accent pillows and a bright shiny crystal chandelier.
