White Christmas Tree Contest


Treetopia contacted me recently and asked me if I would like to choose and decorate a white Christmas tree. I was excited to do so because I thought it would be a great opportunity to use a beautiful collection of vintage silver and gold ornaments in my collection. Here is the finished tree; I hope you like it.

In addition, Treetopia has a little contest for my followers. If you pop over to their website and look at their selection of white trees and guess correctly which of their white trees I chose, you will be entered to win a $100 gift card from Treetopia. Just leave a comment on this post with your guess.

Which tree did I use?

Christmas Chez Chinoiserie Chic 2


My holiday house tour continues today with the kitchen.

My kitchen gets decorated for Christmas with pops of hot pink including a hot pink feather wreath on the kitchen door, a pair of hot pink nutcrackers, and a hot pink patent serving tray from the now defunct Charlotte Moss shop in NYC. The silver Chinese Chippendale mugs are filled with candy canes. The pink cachepot is from Dana Gibson.

Christmas Chez Chinoiserie Chic

Starting today, we will be taking a tour of my home decorated for the holidays. I hope you enjoy it.

For the laundry room, I have hung a Chinoiserie stocking in blue and white and a burlap stocking. The large ginger jar gets adorned with a preserved boxwood wreath. And I have placed on my work table a favorite book of mine, Winter House by Charlotte Moss.
