French Style Christmas

12.11.2014

A couple months ago I was invited to share French Christmas decor along with a few other bloggers. I thought to myself I don't really decorate in a French style, but more traditional for Christmas. Then I decided, with the help of a friend encouraging me, to decorate one of my rooms with French antiques in it. So I chose the sitting room with the French vaisselier and French table. This was the first room I decorated this year and one of my favorites.





I wasn't using this urn in the fireplace this winter so I was glad I tried it in here on top of the table. I took this shot at dusk so the lights would show.

I used a snow blanket and then added my sheep figurines.

I found these cute trees at Michael's and got them half off. I tucked three in the urn with more snow.



On the bottom shelf I filled this wire basket with snow covered pine cones.

Three vintage white bottle brush trees are tucked in this ironstone tureen.

This is one of my newest ironstone finds and I placed another bottle brush tree in it.



I bought four of these white bottle brush wreaths at the Country Living Fair and knew I would use them somewhere. One hangs from the vaisselier.







This is Bailey's favorite room for a nap, too.


So I guess I do have a bit of French Christmas decor after all.

I am thrilled to be joining these other gals and you will not want to miss all  this French Christmas eye candy at the links below.

  9. I especially loved the antique books. Not particularly a Christmas item, but they lend to the overall "Frenchy" feel.
    So pretty!

  29. Kim,
    I've been waiting all week to see the French Style Christmas post with the little blue Santa Claus. As you may guess from my blog's name, I love 'bleu' and especially Noël decorations that are bleu. Your sitting room with its beautiful French furniture is perfectly decorated in French Style Christmas. I so enjoyed seeing its details.

    Joyeux Noël,
    Judith

    1. Sharon, it has a sticker on the bottom that is was made exclusively for Lord & Taylor and I picked it up either at Marshall's, HomeGoods or Tuesday Morning a couple years ago.

      thanks
