Holiday Console Table

The mantel was my first holiday decorating victim.  Our console table was next.

Decor and the Dog Holiday Vignette 1

I went with a woodsy/red/black theme.  And snowflakes.  Snowflakes are like the winter version of owls for me.  Obsessed.  The crate in the center was a Salvation Army find and it will hold all of this year’s holiday cards.  I’m not big on holiday card displays.  I’d rather be able to flip through them.  And the crate is tidy.  I like tidy.

I made the prints. I’m teaching myself to use Photoshop Elements. (I also am teaching myself how to use our DSLR. I took all of these photos with Nate’s 50mm and none of them are blurry. I seriously think the Mayans were right. I’m getting freaked out.) There are links to download the prints at the bottom of the post.

Reindeer Print from Decor and the Dog

I stuck this reindeer print on some burlap and placed it in a frame from Goodwill.  Cheap yet classy.  That’s how I roll.  (Classy people say stuff like that, right?)

The trees are from Hobby Lobby.  Santa, the mirror, the lantern, and the two frames are all from thrift stores.

I like the view as I come down our stairs each morning.  Man, I love Christmas.

What’s your holiday decorating color scheme this year?  How do you display your holiday cards?

***FYI: I added a Holidays 2012 tab at the top of the blog for easy reference to all things holidays this month!***

  2. you are SUCH a giving person. :) I think I need to print these out and put them on my mantle. My mantle isn't nearly as cool as yours and sadly my apartment is too little for a console table to I can't decorate it. I'm just living vicariously through you.

  9. I love your display! That is so cute. I'm going for a sort of woodsy theme this Christmas, too--I love the natural elements. And we must have a Hobby Lobby connection . . . I came *this* close to buying those exact same trees. I bought the wispy twig wreath from your post the other day instead. And now you're making me regret not buying the trees. Dang it!

  10. Adorable! Thanks for sharing the prints. I know my kids will enjoy them too. I had planned to display Christmas cards on a shutter this year, but my husband "shuttered" (bad pun intended) at the idea of paying $35 for an antique shutter labeled by him as a rotten piece of wood. Now I'm on a mission to find the right display.

  12. Love it! I think I have a snowflake problem too. I started wrapping presents last night and when I put them under the tree I noticed that all the wrapping paper has snowflakes on it. I need to buy some new paper.

  16. Your prints are adorable! Such a neat and festive idea. I have a festive caddy in which I store cards. I am in the process of bringing down all my holiday items - traditional color scheme, as usual, this year. Love the lantern, too - a great touch!

  18. I'm all about the free printables this year. Thanks! I just printed them out and put them on my bookshelf. I also printed out Nate's pic. Love it! Your table looks very festive. Where did you get the snowflakes?

  22. Love it! Love your style- it's so simple and yet still "festive" And good idea on the crate to corral holiday cards. I break into a sweat every time someone asks for our new address. I'm like, "oh really, you don't have to." Such a grinch!!! ;)

  23. So cute! I love little spaces for vignettes that aren't so big that they are overwhelming. The console table looks perfect!

    It makes me wish my red lantern survived the last move.
