Simple chic Christmas
Finding yourself pressed for time (and cash) this holiday season? Award–winning interior designer, and host of the weekly lifestyle series Moment of Luxury, Bill Stubbs tells us how to have a simple and chic Christmas:
Once upon a cold, sad time some years ago, back in the 20th Century, I was not prepared for my first Christmas as a single father of two. Christmas Eve was upon me and I had no tree or decorations. I went to sleep asking God for help.
Christmas morning I awoke with the idea that someone would discard a tree before my children arrived. I went to the dumpster and waiting there was a beautiful 7-foot tree complete with a stand! It occurred to me I could create decorations with white printer paper, so I found the scissors and went to work. Paper snowflakes, paper chains and angels transformed the tree into a vision in white -- all done for a cost of $3.00.
My children remember that Christmas with great fondness and laughter the year Dad found a tree in the dumpster and decorated it with white paper!
