Welcome! I hope you will join us here at Plate Addict for a little Christmas tour! The staff has been working very hard to make everything ready! Sooo…we’ll start here on the porch where we have added sparkly red balls to our usual simple garland. We have also spiffed up our Pottery Barn copy cat lanterns for Christmas with some bows and cranberries!
Doesn’t the house smell so nice and Christmasy? It’s a bowl containing my favorite potpourri...The Smell of Christmas by Aromatique! It is being guarded by a pair of cardinals…my favorite birds! I also have some of my homemade potpourri simmering on the stove! (click here for the recipe)
There is a small Christmas tree on the table behind one of the love seats. I just wrapped some toile fabric at the base as a skirt. Using the mantel as inspiration, I tried to keep a toile and stripe theme going. Hmmm…Baby Kitty seems to have a theme going of his own, since the ornaments are all…
And Baby Kitty seems to have called in more kitties to help with the decorating! They are tree toppers dressed in old-fashioned garb. And the kitties have been joined by a doggie and a deer! I think you could sell me anything that has little animals wearing clothes! lol
In honor of the occasion, Baby Kitty has made his special Christmas cookies and some Russian tea! And… he is using his special Christmas plates! They are Lenox Winter Greetings Everyday. I think cardinals must be his favorite bird, too!
Here’s one last peek at our living room! We hope you’ll sit by the fire and enjoy some cookies and special Christmas music because we think you are very special! So we are wishing you a wonderful Christmas and a special holiday season with your families!
Please head on over to Mary’s at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday to see one of her beautiful mosaics and to find a list of this week’s participants. You will be treated to some wonderful photos from some very talented people!
Next, be sure to visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Metamorphosis Monday where you can get a peek at her gorgeous home and see what sorts of changes she is making, as well as find out who else is playing along! I’m sure that you will see lots of beautiful Christmas decorations!
And then on Tuesday, please join Susan at thoughtsfromovertherainbow for Deck the Halls! We will be showing off our Christmas decorations every Tuesday between December 1st and January 5th, so come get in on the fun! Thanks again for stopping by! See you next time! A la prochaine!
