Heaux. Heaux. Heaux. {The Parlor}

I invited you in, so grab a cocktail and come on in. Have a seat in our favorite room of the house, the parlor.

The parlor is the first room that you see when you enter the home, so I love to "do it up" in red, green, gold, and silver. 

I shared the mantle with you last week. You can see the mantle HERE. Thanks for your nice comments.

Dapper fox (Perch, Magazine Street)

The entrance table holds one of my favorite deer. This year, he is holding a tray of peppermints. Gotta have good breath, y'all!

On the bench is a large gold metal tray holding napkins and coasters for my cocktailing guests. My favorite linen napkins are from August|Morgan and state "Olive a Martini," and yes, I do!

The secretary is always a fun piece of furniture to decorate seasonally. I adore these dapper deer. A plaid frame and small tray complete the look. I found the book in the French Quarter.

Candle, Nest Holiday; Frame, Mark & Graham

The tree is decked in colors of red, green, gold, and silver. I always use my oyster ornaments on this tree to compliment a Southern Christmas.

The end table near the tree has two of my favorite Santas, one a vintage foil Santa and the other a glittery and fur Papa Noel.

I also love to add festive pillows to the look.

I hope you liked the parlor. Come back for more!
