The 25 Days of Christmas Day 9: Gilded Glamour For the Holidays Complimented by Strawberry & Cream Pie Recipe

Merry Christmas Friends,

It's our pleasure to continue the 25 Days of Christmas feature for you, our good friends. December 1st through December 25th you can visit our blog for helpful, money-saving ideas to decorate your space for the holidays. It's just a little something to show our appreciation for your continued support of Interior Design eBlog.

Create a Focal Point with a festive holiday mantel and staircase. A festive holiday mantel and staircase takes inspiration from the glow of a crackling fire. Shades from gold to bronze will illuminate your holiday space complimented by accessories collected from around your home. Gold to bronze not your traditional Christmas but it can be your 2009 holiday colors. Branch out, shop for inexpensive decorations at discount department stores.

1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
8 tablespoon (1 stick) butter
1 8-inch graham cracker crust

1 1/2 cups sliced and sweetened strawberries, drained.
