Christmas Table Ideas

It's not too early to start planning your Christmas dinner table. Pull out the Christmas china or take your current china and make it festive.  Add a little greenery here and there and you've got a lovely holiday table.  This table from L.V. Harkness uses Juliska china and lots of red.

This Pottery Barn china from a few years back is one of my favorites.  Love the burlap runner - so easy to make one of those.  Use some greenery from pine trees and you've got a rustic cabin look for Christmas.

Here are few others......

Gifts for Her

The clock is now ticking and Christmas is indeed coming - it will be here in less than a month.  Does Santa need a little help?  Have you done your shopping yet?  If not, I am happy to provide some interesting gift ideas for her that maybe you have not thought of ......

1) For the Hostess 
How cute are these?  If she loves to entertain, she'll love these denim napkins. Monogram them in kelly green or hot pink or even bright orange.  Better yet, monogram each one in a different color.  These will be a big hit for the hostess on your list.

2) For the Fashionista with a Coat Fetish 
I love these two coats from Sail to Sable and could not decide which one I liked the best so I am including them both. Sizes are limited. Navy is the new black.

3) For the Horse Lover With a Handbag Fetish
These are just the cutest bags ever and I have not seen them in any stores.  The details on these bags are difficult to see but trust me, she'll love this.
4) For the Jewelry Lover
These classic earrings from Julie Vos are timeless and will go with almost anything.

5) For the Cook
If you cook then you probably have at least one Le Creuset pot in your kitchen. These are the very best and come in a variety of colors and sizes. Your family will also love what comes out of this dish!


6) For the Letter Writer
These monogrammed note cards will be perfect for the lady in your life who still uses snail mail (yes, some of us relics actually write letters and mail them)!  So cute!

7) For the Rider
If she rides, then she'll love this Kastel Sun Shirt for warm weather riding (and for Florida if she is heading South in January).

8) For the Winter Weather Lover
If she loves winter then she'll love staying warm in these Smartwool Scarves.  Nothing is warmer.

9) For the Traveler
If she loves to travel then you can't go wrong with this Battenkill carry-on. 

Happy Tuesday!

Or this tartan tunic, perfect for the holidays!

I love this fleece jacket:

And these Smartwool socks - they are the only socks that keep me warm!

And this tote is great for the person on the go and it can be personalized.

And this zip sweater will last forever, and keep you warm!

And who won't love this quilted Barbour Coat which also comes in navy blue.

Holiday Visit to Ivy Nursery

My only Black Friday shopping trip yesterday was to Ivy Nursery and it did not disappoint.  The infamous Virginia garden and gift shop was filled to the rim with holiday cheer.  If you can't decorate your house with this stuff, well........

There was ribbon....

And flowers.....

And angels made from old wood....

And Paperwhites.....

And orchids....

We picked up our boxwood wreath and few other tidbits to fill our own home with the holiday spirit.  Hope your Thanksgiving was fabulous!

Anthro Holiday Shopping Picks

Today is "shop til you drop" day for many people and the Internet makes it so easy now.  While the bulk of my shopping is done, I'll pick up a few more items here and there to fill in the holes.  Anthro is having a 30 percent off sale site wide with free shipping over $150.  Here are a few of my picks, gifts for some hard to shop for people and a few extras for my own closet!

I'd use these bowls for entertaining, not for cereal.

I have several sets of these knives and they are divine! They will make great gifts.  Who does not need an extra set of knives!

I adore this tablecloth and wish it were long enough to fit my huge dining room table.

If you still need a few more holiday outfits, this coat is adorable.


And this little black dress is fabulous! It won't be around long.

Or this jacquard skirt.

And I love these skinny jeans.

And I love these earrings which come in several color combinations.

Enjoy your Black Friday!
