~Traditional Christmas~

Wednesday, December 25th, 2013

Bringing the spirit of a true traditional Christmas into your home involves a few key pieces that we’re sure are pretty inescapable this holiday season: plush red, shimmering silver, gold, evergreens…and more gold. Certain traditions have stayed tried and true over the years like tree toppers, stockings and poinsettias adorning every corner of the house. These days, however, we’ve seen more modern interpretations of Christmas classics that we were happy to share on Pinterest! From trendy typographic messages to classic Christmas wreathes, we’ve got you covered on all Traditional Christmas decor. We hope that this Christmas Day you are enjoying in your own traditions of Christmas, enjoying the old and maybe creating some new!

Did you decide to go with the Woodland Christmas trend this year? Or maybe stuck to a Vintage holiday style?
Whatever your inspirations… make it a memorable holiday with your loved ones!

~Vintage Christmas~

Tuesday, December 24th, 2013

Christmas is often a time we all look back and relive the warm and fuzzy memories of our past and of our time with family & relatives. In our Vintage Christmas inspired design, we love seeing all the things that bring back those memories… from family heirlooms to well-loved ornaments, your vintage Christmas can be anything you dream. Good ol’ St. Nick can doesn’t have to be in his red coat and white fleece cuffs, but more a throw back to olden times where he is more a Nordic gentleman. Happy colors of vibrant greens and festive reds, along with the assorted mix of other bright colors make any vintage Christmas design fun and memorable!

Want something a bit more trendy this year? Check out our Woodland inspired holiday design!

What vintage elements can you add to your Christmas decor?

~Woodland Christmas~

Monday, December 23rd, 2013

Happy Holidays from Team AGA! We’re busy pinning and planning for the upcoming holiday festivities and we wanted to share some of our latest inspiration with you all. We’re falling in love with rich dark wood, bright greens and of course, deep red cranberry & apple hues. We love the idea of bringing the rustic holiday theme indoors by utilizing pine cones, bark and candles to create breathtaking centerpieces and garland. Looking for a place to snag these holiday decor must-haves? Try your local craft stores or make friends with the neighborhood Christmas tree vendors (they have plenty of extra wood and branches that they would rather give away than haul around!)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! A Good Affair’s Delightful December Christmas Countdown has been filled with all different ideas for the season’s festivities- hope you were able to get some great ideas throughout the month. Today is Christmas, Day 25 and what better way to end the series than with thanks! As the owner of A Good Affair Wedding & Event Production I have been blessed with wonderful clients, the opportunity to plan The Knot’s Orange County party, and so much more. I am looking forward to 2012 and all the fabulous events we have coming up!

Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year for so many reasons- most importantly my family and friends! I wanted to share some personal photos with you of my husband Jason and I and our fur babies- Maggie and Piper. We had a wonderful holiday photo shoot with the fabulous Anne of Anne Watson Photography. It was a crazy windy day but that didn’t stop us from heading out to Santiago Oaks park for some darling shots. Check out some of the amazing shots that Anne captured ( thanks so much Anne!).

 Me and my baby Piper- see I wasn’t lying about the wind!!!

Love this shot with my Maggie Mae~ such a love bug!!!

 

This shot of Maggie is so FREAKING amazing~ love love love!

 

I am so thankful for such a wonderful hubby, the backbone support for me and A Good Affair!

Wrapping gifts can be the easiest thing or the most intricate! But one detail that shouldn’t be left off is the gift tag! After all, you want to know who the gift is going to and, in turn, for the recipient to know who its from.

Sweets, candy and chocolate are big on the agenda around the Holidays… as gifts, as party food, even as casual nibbles around the office.

But one traditional dessert we have yet to mention is the Buche de Noel!  A traditional French roll cake shaped as a yule log. And as traditions go… they evolve over time and variations emerge! Check out these yummy cakes you could bring to your next party!

Check out all the variations of a Buche de Noel here!

Love the different garnishes you can use!

What a beauty!

Hope you’re having a wonderful week gearing up for this big weekend! We sure are!!

Happy Holidays!
