Come on in…
Welcome to the parlor decked in its Christmas best.
A drummer boy welcomes all on the entrance table.
The mantle at Christmas is one of my favorites. Real magnolia garland strung with mini white lights hangs from the lower mantle. Bows of red and gold stripe fill the corners with glittered berries and pomegranates.
The lower mantle houses my oyster trees purchased in Bay St. Louis along with a stately bronzed deer. Greens, glittered branches, and berries completes the vignettes. Stockings from Ballard Designs hang from the lower mantle.
The upper mantle holds my vintage trophy collection topped with red orbs and pomegranates. Amber-colored vintage labeled apothecary bottles blend perfectly with the trophy collection.
In the front corner of the parlor is a tall, thin faux fir tree placed in a black urn. The tree is decorated in mercury glass silvered acorns, glittery pomegranates, custom-made oyster ceramic ornaments, white antler ornaments, red & gold striped ribbon, and silver glitter branches. A vintage-style tree topper, bow, and glittered acorn branches fill the top of the tree.
The zinc-topped bistro side table houses two of my favorite glittered deer with mink collars.
Two Christmas books rests on an burlap-covered ottoman/foot stool.
The bench coffee table holds a tray with a large silver glittered moose wrapped in a mink collar and acorn ornaments.
A cloche covering a glittered Santa Claus rests on the sofa side table.
Two soldiers stand at attention in the alcoves between the parlor and stair parlor. I love these so much. I created small wreaths for each. They add just enough seasonal touch to each soldier.
Another side table holds a traveling Santa from Kurt Adler.
The crown chandelier houses a dozen glittered red orbs.
I hope you enjoyed this tour. More tours of my Christmas finery will continue soon.
