Good morning, chic readers! After a long weekend in Manhattan, we are very much in the holiday spirit! Between the Christmas windows, ice skating at Rockefeller Center, having breakfast with Santa, Christmas shopping and the SNOW, we are feeling like Christmastime is most definitely here!
But if you aren’t quite there yet, don’t worry. We’re here to help you along– beginning with these gorgeous, gorgeous trees. They would motivate anyone to put on their coat and hat and go out in search of the perfect fir or spruce! (Or, you know, pull it out of the attic. Whatever.)
We know it goes against everything we’ve learned our entire lives, everything we’ve been taught.
But, when it comes to Christmas trees, we have to think that it’s what’s on the outside that counts.
While some Christmas ornaments can be a little more kid friendly, it’s also easy to find classier and more grownup options for those years when life isn’t centered around who is going to remember to move the elf…
From beautifully painted ornaments to hand-blown glass, metallics to neutrals, decorating the Christmas tree doesn’t just mean talking Santas and whimsy galore anymore.
But, the good news is, it certainly can! Whether you prefer brightly colored Christmas decorations with plenty of lights and maybe even little tinsel,
Or a refined, grown-up, totally chic tree,
Christmas tree decorations come in as many options, shapes and sizes as the presents underneath the branches, and are a great way to express your unique tastes and style.
With so many gorgeous options, why not have more than one?
Thanks so much for making Design Chic a part of your day! Happy holiday decorating!
Last week we had the pleasure of spending a fun-filled long weekend in the place that we think gets as close to Christmas magic as you can without going to the North Pole: NYC! I had the most amazing day of meetings with the team at Gallery Books (Simon & Schuster) about all that is THE SECRET TO SOUTHERN CHARM, the sequel to SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE and the second book in Peachtree Bluff series–and filmed fun videos that I can’t wait to share with you! To celebrate the upcoming launch (April 3, 2018!) and get you in the holiday spirit, we’re giving away a $100 Amazon gift card for your holiday essentials. Enter below!
