Christmas Decorating ideas
Happy Friday Friends! Ive been feverishly decorating the house for parties, gatherings, birthdays and clients meetings. My house has been a revolving door lately and to be honest I couldn’t be happier. A lot of my visitors have been asking about some of my new decor that I have added to the repetoire so I thought that I’d introduce you to Painted Fox. A unique online store that had the most wonderful blend of rustic, farmhouse and a touch of bohemian chic. Just up my alley right? I stumbled across Painted Fox on Instagram and fell in love with pretty much all their items. My friends Chirstine and Jennifer have offered us some great Holiday incentive for those looking for some fabulous farmhouse swag! Here’s just a few of my favorites and how Ive styled them in our home.
We have a very small front entrance so the Rustic Butler’s Helper is so efficient and is the first thing that greets guests. This wood and pipe shelf with a coat and hat rack fits just perfectly. If the coats and hats don’t make it into the closet then the stop here. If anyone is missing their keys I always say “Check the shelf!” No elf on this shelf just Santa.
Each year I like to add a fun pillow on my two chairs that flank the fireplace. This year this regal reindeer made the list. We call him the Admiral. A super soft and colorful hand stitched pillow with loads of detail. The Admirals colors and whimsical style go great with the fireplace and our silly stockings…. and don’t you just love his heart nose?
Christmas Dinner table ideas
As most of you know I have a very large family and we were always adding card tables to my prior dining table that sat 6. So to solve that problem I made this reclaimed wood table with my father. I love the distressed painted red top so much that I hate to cover it up with a tablecloth. Tonight I plan to have some friends over for a simple pot luck dinner. A centerpiece with greens, wax dipped pine cones, and metal moose add to the rustic charm of the table decor.
I brought out the ski plates and draped these super soft and oversized cotton towels to use as napkins in between the dinner and salad plate. These Striped Red Towels are perfect for the kitchen too. They come in sets of 6 so I ordered two sets. After all you can never have too many farmhouse striped towels. So much better than paper napkins!
I’ve added a few images of more Painted Fox items that are on my Christmas list to Santa. I encourage you to head on over to Christine’s and Jen’s Painted Fox site and take a peek at what treasures you can’t live without either! They have graciously offered my friends a 20 % discount so when you’re at check out mention AMIELOVES20.
Happy Holidays Friends and I hope that your December is filled with joy, happiness and loads of treasures! xoxo Amie
