Decking the Halls, Stair Parlor {Christmas 2012}


On with the tour…

Now enter the Stair Parlor.


The stair parlor is “guarded” by the soldiers standing at attention in each niche.

On the central table (my fave) is an arrangement in a large mercury glass faux bois vessel. The arrangement contains stems of pine, red berries, and my favorite cotton boll branches. I think it makes a festive welcome.

The table holds my collection of boxes in bone, horn, oyster shells, and pewter. A glittered deer with a blowing collar “wish” sits atop the bone box. I purchased it last year with my Dixie Belles. We each have one from The Porch, now at The Shops at 2011 Magazine Street.


Atop the table is the chandelier decked in holiday spirit with red cane-style chandelier shades and tiny stems of pine wrapped around each light stem.


6 shiny ornaments hang from the chandelier.

The staircase features 2 magnolia garlands wrapped in mini white lights. Seasonal bows, pomegranates, and gold rope/tassel adorn the garland in strategic locales.

Along the stairs are potted poinsettias, decorative drums, and 2 glittered trees.

The small chest at the foot of the stairs is topped with compotes of Christmas balls in red and white & gold gilded acorns.

Decking the Stair Parlor, y’all!


  1. Ron-It looks fabulous and grand. Love it- especially the table and I really love the little niches on either side of the staircase. xo Dina

  2. So pretty, Ron. I love the way you go all out with your Christmas decor. I am slowly getting mine up. I thought about doing lights on the stair garland this year too but our dog is not quite a year old and I am afraid she will decide to eat the lights!

  3. Wowee! When you finish can you come and do my house?



  4. Love it! I really love the table and chandelier, and the gold rope with tassels add such a richness to the garland! Can't wait to see tomorrow's blog post! :)

  5. Your clock table really caught my eye! I have two that I painted black and distressed and put clock faces on them..but I really like th whole thing being a clock face. Nice

  6. Ron, your home is truly a holiday feast for the eyes! The stair parlor looks amazing! I am sure it is even more stunning in person!

  7. Beautiful as always Ron!! I love how you have your garland draped along the staircase!

  8. Another gorgeous holiday room! Thanks for sharing, Ron. xo, Jill

  9. So Beautiful, love the magnolia garland. The staircase is fantastic. Just, fantastic.
    Hugs, Ginger
