New For Me: A Cable Knit Christmas

I’m sticking with my simple Christmas décor this year and decided to use plain red and white in the family room.  I decided not use the large custom mantle swag with Della Robbia fruit and huge ribbons/bows again this year. Don’t’ get me wrong…the swag and fru-fru stuff is beautiful but I’m in desperate need for a change.

Here’s what I already had that sparked the decorating change and I just decided to go with it!  I  bought these cable knit cone trees at Target a couple years ago and have had the silver deer a long time.

I love my two cable knit pattern ceramic vases from Target.  So I kept thinking what can I do with cable knit?  Voilà! I wanted the family room to be warm and inviting with festive touches that can carry on through winter.  So here is my version of a Nordic theme.

I’m crazy about this cute  advent garland that I found at TJ Maxx.  The little knitted bags are numbered.

This is one of two deer that I spray painted white last year.

  I created a vignette on the coffee table using an old painted tool box.

I filled it with candles, fresh greenery, and small packages.

I found this little piece of French pottery used to make cheese.  It makes a cool little candle stand.

I found this Santa sack at TJ Maxx.

Pottery Barn has these great cable knit pattern candles in their holiday décor and I couldn’t resist getting them.

I added two throws to the back of the sofa plus the reindeer pillow from PB.

All in all I think my cable knit Nordic theme came together quite nicely in the family room.

I guess today is officially one week until Christmas!  All of the planning is done, presents are wrapped and now it’s time to sit back and enjoy!

Blessings,

Kim
