decorating the hutch

This weekend I finished up decorating my hutch for the Christmas season. I was excited to use my new holiday plates that I got at Home Goods. Last year I got a set of plates that I used at the Dollar store, but they weren't cutting it. :) And the new ones only cost $12.

The colors in the plates are a really nice red and green, not too bright of colors. I used the same dinner plates behind them as I used when I decorated for Fall. The sparkly snowflakes are napkin holder I bought at Pottery Barn a couple of years ago when they went on clearance.

I used some of my lace trees around the house for decorating. The white tree on top was another Home Goods find, the same day I got the plates.

I also addded some glittery leaf picks here and there to give the hutch some glamour.

I wasn't sure what to do with the counter, so I used a holiday placemat and added some leaf stems and more glittery ornaments.
I don't know if mine is as nice as my parents, but I am happy with how it turned out! :)

I love it. The plates go especially nice with the topiary. Love all the "bling" around it too! (ornaments, trees, etc.)

Hi Emily - thanks for stopping by - glad you like the gazebo!

Those Christmas tree plates are lovely. I've been staying away from Homegoods (hard!!) because I'm trying to 'simplify' and cutting back on china purchases is necessary. BUT......may have to look for those to go with my other pink transferware!

Everything looks lovely in your hutch.
Have a great day.
