Christmas is near and I can hardly contain my excitement. Spending quality time with my family, the snow laying beautifully on the ground, lights and decorations. It all makes for the most beautiful time of year. I get in the Christmas spirit pretty early, like right after Halloween early. Christmas decorations can take time so I like getting an early start so that the family can enjoy everything a bit longer.
Oriental Trading has a beautiful new Christmas collection this year called Buffalo Plaid. I found many great items to add to my decor collection.
It all started out with this gorgeous buffalo plaid tree skirt. As soon as I saw it I just had to have it. After that it seemed like everything buffalo plaid was just adding its self to my cart (well that's what I'll tell my husband anyway (HaHa). In all seriousness though, I believe this is by far, my favorite Holiday collection. Red and black plaid are sort of like the staple Christmas colors, and then add in plaid which is also a Holiday must have, and you have the perfect Holiday decor.
The tree skirt adds a classic and homey feel to your Christmas tree. It will look log-cabin awesome featured next to a roaring fire in the fireplace. The Plush Holiday Snowman adds the perfect touch sitting in front of he tree. This one was quite a bit bigger than I expected. 20" by 11".
I used the Wooden Buffalo Plaid Serving Tray as a center piece for my living room table. You can get the matching bowls and this would also make the perfect dish to serve your Holiday treats. I opted for using the Stringart Table Topper and the Holiday Handcraft Mason Jars to sit right in the serving tray. The mason jars come in a set of three. They can instantly take any space from drab to fab. Each jar is festively painted and wrapped in burlap. Best of all you get that craft look that's oh-so-trendy without any of the mess or stress of making it yourself.
These Buffalo Plaid Cones look absolutely stunning as center pieces or alone. You get two cones, both sizes ranging from around 15 and a half to 18 and a half inches. The plaid fleece has such a Holiday feel to it. I use mine on either side of the Plaid Snow Man Table Topper. The Snow Man itself sits at about 16 inches tall and is beautifully crafted of wood. He's adorable and festive with a buffalo plaid scarf, sprig of berry and holly on his knitted hat and jolly jingle bells. He's also great as a center piece and as a Christmas decoration on your mantle. (He's also 33% off right now).
