Frugal Fun: Holiday Magic

Every year I eagerly await a Christmas party invitation from Michael Quinn, my beyond-creative buddy who lives in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. This year's notice was not to be outdone, announcing a magical, Christ-mystical theme for the annual gathering. As you can see by his get-up for his gathering, Michael celebrated all holiday traditions of multiple religions and earthly pleasures.

The table was moodily set with veiled cherubs, nativity scene figurines and paper butterflies that Michael rescued from a Tiffany & Co. window display.

A Victorian candelabra filled with glowing white candles found its place among vintage ornaments that graced the scenario.

Streamers, beads and lengths of white lace draped from the ceiling, accenting the tablescape below.

The living room ceiling was strewn with even more lace, holding colorful holiday orbs in front of a lit, papier-mâché globe.

As always, it was yet another Michael Quinn production worth tooting a horn about!

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,

The Elegant Thrifter
