If you know me, you know how I love my vintage Quimper French faïence, so taking it down to re-do the breakfast room hutch with Christmas decor was not an option! In the spirit of working with what’s there that served me well in my dining room, I decided to simply Christmas-ify my hutch…Quimper ware and all! Hey…they have Christmas in Quimper!
I am going it alone today since the staff has gone to the mall to get in a last minute visit with Santa Claws! Sooo…all I have done is add a few strategic pops of red and green! What do you think? Is it festive enough?
In my beloved chippy antique bowl, I put a smaller overturned bowl in the center, added some shiny ornaments and a red candle surrounded by greenery.
A nest of my favorite birds…bright red cardinals…fills another small bowl…
…and another red candle and more shiny ornaments decorate my leaf-shaped candle holder…a favorite antique store find.
On the upper shelves…a wreath of more red ornaments strung on a wire coat hanger…easy!…
…and my egg cups…a special souvenir from the tour of the HB Henriot factory in Quimper during my retirement trip to France…are also sporting some shiny red ornaments!
And hanging from a knob…my childhood Christmas stocking brings back some wonderful memories! That’s my collection of terra cotta cookware behind it.
And here it is…the breakfast room hutch all dressed up and waiting for Christmas morning! The table is all set, but I am saving that for later…but not too much later! Christmas is almost here! Are you ready?
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed a little peek at the Christmas hutch! Please visit these wonderful bloggers and their beautiful blogs to see what they are up to and to find a list of this week’s participants!
