Balsam Hill Event

Balsam-Hill-headerI probably sound like a broken record at this point. But I keep repeating it to prepare myself. At first, I wanted to cancel Christmas, but when would I start celebrating it again? Christmas is my favourite time of year. FAVOURITE. And my Dad isn’t around this year to celebrate it. A year of firsts without him. Tough but it’s gotta be done.

Ya can’t dwell on sadness b’ys.

And I’m in the mood for Christmas! Gimmie a spiked eggnog and blast those Christmas tunes so I can rock around the Christmas tree.

In November Lauren invited me as her +1 to a Balsam Hill Insiders Showcase event in Burlingame where we decorated large 26″ artificial Christmas wreathes. You know we’re going to have a good time when the two of us are stoked for an event. Neither ended up winning the wreath making contest. But we did come away with door prizes and a goodie bag at the end of the night, which was so unexpected and absolutely phenomenal! I won a huge stand-up white Christmas bear with a little bow tie, that’s actually hanging out in our front porch right now. And inside the goodie bag was a coupon for Balsam Hill along with delicate and so intricate glass ornaments for our Christmas tree. Lauren-Nancy

It was my first time at Balsam Hill and was it ever gorgeous inside, and behind the scenes of the showroom there’s a Christmas Tree + Ornament Lane. Why can’t it be Christmas season for longer? It really does bring me tons of joy with the warm glow of Christmas twinkly lights. Christmas-at-Balsam-Hill

Oh, and it was a contest! And definitely super fun with tons of laughs and memories. I hadn’t decorated a wreath before. To be honest wasn’t entirely sure what I was doing, but many handed me compliments and praises of what I had created. It was a nice feeling :) Serious faces hard at work. Christmas-wreath-making

Here’s my finished product hung up on the wall with care (for profesh pics!). I wasn’t sure what type of look I was going for, but I knew immediately as soon as I saw the velvet ribbon it had to be the star of my wreath. I just went with whatever worked, and for the most part I think it worked out well, don’t you? I mean… I think it’s really well done. Just patting myself on the ol’ back here!Nancys-wreath

If you’re not subscribed to my YouTube channel you might’ve missed what video I posted right after the event (watch it here!).


Huge thanks to Balsam Hill for allowing me to be Laurens +1 to the event! Hope to attend again next year :)
