Oh, Deer! Dream Christmas installation


We installed our first client setup today! Yep. November 10. Since my store is all decked out, we’re in the mood and this cute family can’t get enough of the Holiday spirit. I dressed the dining room chandelier with ornaments, packed to the gills. Oh. My. An already glamorous and sparkling chandelier became even more delightful with glittering ornaments, silver…champagne…mercury glass…I love this!




Looking from the dining table…just see what I tied into this light fixture!




I piled my beautiful sugar cones in this unused firebox and added a gaggle of silver balls in a garland (shatterproof!). Then I added one strand of our LED tiny lights with a battery pack! Voila. Pure magic!

A lovely foyer with an open staircase, much in the style of Gone With the Wind, was the perfect stage for the most beautiful greens I’ve seen! I added some favorite boughs cascading at the cap of the newel post and my favorite satin ribbon with multiple tails for drama. Ahhhh!



This stately fireplace mantle was calling for a row of teeny, tiny sisal trees…who says you can’t curate a “collection” all at one time?! This just melts my heart. A vintage map below grounds the whimsy. #ohsosusan



This collaged wall of favorite framed art was also the recepient of a trio of tiny trees! The perfect Christmas touch.



I took this 50″ tray from my personal stash (!) to complete the dining room centerpiece. The table is dressed with our Kitchen Papers chevron gold and white paper runner. The tray is reflecting the runner! Filled with an oversized silver punch bowl footed container and oversized ornaments, frosted pinecones, silver accents and snow, this is the perfect statement for a fully extended dining table for 10. Oh, what fun it is!



My 10,000 square foot store is decked out with holiday throughout! Whether it’s a gift for a friend or for your own personal home, it’s all here for the taking. Until it’s gone, that is….

Come see the magic. Susan’s biggest, best Christmas collection ever! Hope to see you soon.
