Merry Christmas and welcome!
Thank you, Jenny at Evolution of Style for allowing me to be a part of this fun, enthusiastic and sweet 12 Days of Christmas Home Tour.
Two years ago, when we moved from our home in Newport Beach to our 1920’s apartment in San Francisco, I had to consolidate our Christmas decorations–and somewhat painfully, gave away a lot.
- Use what we have in new ways…that’s a money saver!
- Incorporate fresh greenery and flowers.
- Light a candle or two…
- Have a vintage vibe since our apartment is close to 100 years old
See the jeweled tree on the left? I made it using vintage pieces…some charms have a lot of meaning to me so I love bringing this out and observing it each year. More about making it HERE.
This year, I have Christmas cards on the coffee table in this glass box and ornaments under a cloche.
The napkin ring is just a circle of ribbon.
This little twig tree is from Restoration Hardware and the pinecones were collected in the mountains and lightly sprayed with fake snow.
Really simple in the guest room… I added a red throw over the headboard and Santa Claus.
Votive candles are always fun…they make a nice hostess gift, too.
I think I will turn on some Christmas music…
