Hello and happy Tuesday! Busy start to my week but it’s been a productive one. I vowed that by this weekend I will start “assessing” my holiday decor, I get dizzy thinking of it but at least want to come up with some kind of a game plan. Dying to use my blue and white ornaments so that’s a major motivation!

Though I have yet to put out a single holiday decoration I am definitely revving up my engine and feeling the fever:) One look on Instagram and you feel immediately behind the eight ball, but I will get there, always do!

One thing that might help jump start my holiday mojo is that Horchow is having a one day site sale with many many things 30% off and its a good one you will not want to miss. A really great time to take advantage of some of the spectacular holiday items they offer….so many beautiful things. I have become quite the savvy shopper and wait for sales like these to stock up on what I need as well as holiday gifts. I have never shopped as much online as I  have this past year, I rarely go into stores anymore!

So your turn to weigh in on your two favorite holiday decorating finds….I was hard pressed to pick just two. Here we go-

CHOICE 7 What a perfect hostess gift, a set of festive holiday cocktail napkins, click here


CHOICE 8 How pretty are these gorgeous Nutcracker guest towels, great way to add some holiday cheer to a powder room, click here


CHOICE 9 Love this jolly Santa with the lit Christmas tree, I have one simliar that I look forward to putting out every season, click here


CHOICE 10 Actually thinking of ordering a few of these pieces for someone who I know who will flip over them, these are really stunning and priced well, click here


CHOICE 11 I have a hard time resisting a navy nutcracker!! Click here


CHOICE 12 This set of three olive bottle brush trees is fabulous, I can think of so many uses, on top of a kitchen island, in front of a fireplace, on a console or foyer chest, gorgeous! Click here


CHOICE 13 A beautiful Christmas classic, Spode Christmas tree dinnerware, so timeless. Click here


CHOICE 14 Wouldn’t these wine stoppers make a perfect hostess gift! Definitely getting a few sets:) Click here

Just love all of Horchow’s holiday items- the Pewter & Bronze Pre-Lit 28″ Christmas Wreath has to be my favorite- even unlit, it looks just beautiful….. gorgeous colors & deep tones…

Kris on

The Angel Wreath Holder and the Christmas Tree Advent Calendar are my favorites. The angels shared the news and the advent calendar leads us to His birth!

Linda on

I just love the pre lit Christmas wreath.

Susan Stark on

Just love the McKenzie-Childs ornament, as well as the Swarovski Christmas Ball. I have a flocked tree in my kitchen that has all crystal ornaments on it. Would love to add that to my collection.

franki on

Dreams of greenery, magnolia leaves, “metallic spray paint”, etc. are swirling in my head…and, how I’m going to transform from Thanksgiving (lots of guests staying) and turn into my “magical holiday time”….overnight….franki

Eve on

Have been a long time customer of Horchow–they never disappoint. Love the pewter & bronze Christmas wreath. The Eiffel Tower ornament would be perfect for my French daughter-in-law!
Thanks for all the beautiful suggestions.

Dana on

Goodness, I had trouble picking two. I love decorating for Christmas, and just waiting till after thanksgiving to start. My daughter has already started, lol. We both get carried away; more is definitely more at Christmas!

deborah on

As always, everything is splendid but as I am a Horchow nut and love all things Nutcracker, my favs are the beautiful gold plated serving dishes and of course, the navy blue Nutcracker, he is amazing!

Thank you, Tina, for sharing your great taste with us.

Lynne on

I love the Yuletide Manor Small Wreath but then again I loved almost everything.
Have a good day, sunny here .

Carol on

Love the red and white plates. On top of my white plates they would look great. Always go for salad or cocktail plates as I can use them with plates I already have and do not take up as much space. All the items above and at their site just scream Class

Carolyn on

Who doesn’t love a Marc Roberts piece. I would love to do a whole tree with Marc Roberts!! Love it all though!!

Marlis on

I am a Christmas fanatic! I had this year’s Christmas table decor planned out last year, I have next year’s just about complete and the year following is almost complete as well. I Love decorating and know just about where everything will go, and which themed items will make their appearance this year. When our children were little, they would invite everyone to have pumpkin pie in the attic because as soon as dinner is over, the decorating begins!
My two favorites are the Karen Didion Platinum Rocking Horse Santa and the Kim Seybert Frosted Pine Christmas tree skirt. They would make wonderful pieces to display each year.
Thanks for the gracious chance!

Vicki on

Loved the Carousel and the Mackinzie-Child Turkey. They always have the prettiest things for Christmas.

Pre-lit wreath would be fantastic! Love Horchow…

And who doesn’t love nice linen cocktail napkins! One can never have enough for entertaining.
Love the holidays!

corrieMae on

I really like the Angel Wreath Holder and the Pewter and Bronze Wreath. Both items are very lovely. I have not even started to think about Christmas decorating. Being in the middle of a remodel and buying a second home, has me in a funk. Love looking at all the Christmas decorations.

Linda brown on

I love anything Mackensie-Childs. How fun are the dress form trees!

Debbie H. on

I love the Jay Strongwater ornaments. Also the nutcracker tree skirt is beautiful!!!

Kathy CArver on

I absolutely adore the large Angel wreath holder! One can never have enough Angels looking over you! I also admire the faux mink tree skirt as I can just envision the little ones falling asleep on it under the tree dreaming of Christmas morning!

Karen Levandowski on

I LOVE the Bethany Lowe Vintage-Style Christmas Church – Thanks!

JAcqueline A.H. on

Quality food.

I wish I can take it all home! I really love the outdoor nutcrackers and magnolia Garland and wreaths. I think they are classic holiday decor that can be used over and over.

Donna brookerd on

Love the garlands. Can use year after year and very classic. Also love the spode china

Arell on

I love Horchow and seeing their Christmas Collection makes me love them even more! The ornaments are so whimsical! I love all of their tree skirts, I think my favorite is the Partridge In A Pear Tree, but so many are lovely, it is always hard to choose! The Spode Christmas Tree Dishware is pretty fabulous too, as are the velvet Christmas Stockings!

Jennifer Hayden on

I love the Classic Red & Green 32″ Wreath. Perfect for the holidays!

Liz T on

I just love Horchow. Always great quality items. I like the vintage bright mini trees. Great addition to my bottle brush collection.

JoannE on

My favourites were the 24″ and 17″ outdoor balls with the green satin ribbon and the set of three metal gifts in red. My front door is red and these would look great along with some fresh greenery.

Fran on

Love the Christmas Foliage dinnerware and the beautiful magnolia garland and wreath!

[email protected] on

the olive bottle brush trees! so charming and timeless! i am nowhere yet with my holiday decor, and this is not a good thing! maybe when the doors get installed?!? mercy, it’s not easy and this year, i have no intention to make it look that way! thanks for getting things rolling with the festive post! xox

ApRil on

The nutcracker tasseled tree skirt and the Angel snow globe are my favorite. I can see the snow globe in a special place where a child could wind up the music and tip to see the snow fall. Magical. Thanks Tina.

Faye on

Horchow never ceases to delight around the Holidays! So hard to choose between the beautiful table decor and Christmas decorations but I really do adore any of the Mark Roberts Fairies. They add a bit of whimsy and I could see two or three flanking a beautifully lit Christmas tree! Just love them.

Bev freiley on

Well Tina, I must say you are a bad influence! Not only did I go to the Horchow website, but of course had to buy some of their gorgeous Halcyon Days ornaments (I am a sucker for anything English), and a tree skirt! I guess my favorites would be those things, but I always covet the Lynn Haney santas too. Their faces are so wonderful, and the detail amazing!

leigh on

Love the starry lights and the nativity scene….also love Horchow and have always been pleased with everything I have bought from them…. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity. Can’t wait to see the new look of your blog…..of course, I like the look of the current one as well! 🙂

Love the Animated Advent Box. Unique!

Leanne Turner on

I love the faux mink treeskirt! Very unusual!

joy campbell on

I just love the Nutcracker Tree Skirt! I have a collection of Nutcrackers and this skirt would be perfect as the finishing touch to my decor.

Kathleen on

I could spend hours looking at Horchow’s Christmas collection! I’m very fond of the ombre grid Christmas tree skirt and the red velvet golden leaf Christmas stocking. They’d add a wonderful holiday touch to my living room

kesha on

I love the Towle Silversmiths 90-Piece Gold-Plated Hotel Flatware Service

Karlyn on

Since I have daughters that have danced in the Nutcracker ballet for many years I always decorate with nutcrackers! I think the tree skirt is just beautiful and also love the carved nutcrackers for the front porch.

Hard to resist a Horchow sale! Put me down for a set of needlepoint stockings–we need a new set.

Pinecones in a golden bowl. Very pretty and good throughout the entire holiday season.

GaRna clark on

Loved the outdoor nativity, scrolled Christmas tree skirt, red and white monogrammed stockings and….

bobbie hathaway on

Everything from Horchow is lovely. The Mark Roberts fairies are so cute. I am into fairies. The MacKenzie-Childs Highland Sleigh is on my wish list and the Reindeer centerpiece is very nice. I’ll stop here before I name the entire list.

Thank you for bringing Horchow to our attention this wonderful season.

Ingrid Yardley on

Have always enjoyed shopping at Horchow. I absolutely over the large nutcracker by the door!! So gorgeous! I decorate the day after Thanksgiving.

Katie Clooney on

I love all of them. I think I would choose the needlepoint tree skirt because then I would tell all the ladies in my needlepoint group who think I am a loser (which I am) that I made it!! Have a great week. Have you been watching the RH reunions?

Janet on

In the Horchow holiday collection, I love both the Christmas Foliage Dinnerware Service and the Juliska Country Estate Winter Frolic collection. The classic red and green nutcracker topiary is gorgeous also!

Jill on

I love the nutcracker needlepoint tree skirt and the navy nutcracker. It would be so much fun to do an “elegant whimsy” decorating scheme– think I’ll give it a go this year!

Bebett on

I would love to add the huge Rainforest Radiance Santa to my Santa collection.

Gail Vultee on

I love natural looking holiday decor, and liked the Frosted Gold 30″ Christmas Wreath.

Lisa on

My front porch would love to be decorated with the Drummer Toy Soldier Statue and the bronze outdoor ornaments! Wow, so wonderful!

I love some of the faux wreaths and garlands since once you get them, they are good for years to come. The magnolia ones are beautiful.

I’m so in love with the
Classic Red & Green Nutcracker Topiary and the Platinum Rocking Horse Santa!

Nancy H on

I really like the MacKenzie Childs Christmas decorations. So fun and whimsical.

Donna C. on

So love the decorative garland! They are timeless and elegant and could see using these for years to come. Already have two of many trees decorated. Shortened days and holiday season have hastened the start of the decorating at this humble abode. Trees are adorned in den, LR, DR, kitchen and all bedrooms. Children are grown, but the Christmas spirit lives in our hearts.

Susan Johnstone on

I collect nativity scenes, and there are any number I would love to have.

Hunter on

I love the magnolia garlands and wreaths. When I was married, one of my father’s fraternity brothers and his wife gave us a Wallace silver ball for a wedding present. Every year since then, my mother has given us another one for Christmas. We now have 42 silver balls and I have one whole tree decorated with just those in my dining room each Christmas! It is fabulous and now we have started the tradition with our daughter and son-in-law. I have to say it is still to this day one of my favorite wedding presents and one I think of each and every year!

We just finished a renovation of a beach house so I feel your pain about making quick decisions. It is fun for me to see you have picked many things that look a lot like things we chose for our house. It is finished and we are in love! Certainly, every time I leave it to come back to the “real world,” it is hard to do! I look forward to watching your’s come along. I know it will be stunning!

Jayne Rogers on

Definitely covet the green and gold magnolia garland!!! So many pretty ways to decorate for Christmas from Horchow!

Terri First on

With my 7 year daughter, flying out to Disney tomorrow and all the Magic that the Christmas season and Uncle Walt brings, she has agreed that we love the magic and dimension that Jay Strongwater brought to his Christmas Ornament collection this year. In particular, we loved floral artisan christmas ornament. The butterflies look like they could fly around the room at any moment.
May your Holidays contain the magic, majesty, and miracle that makes family so extra special.

Katherine W Pitts on

I shop Horchow and enjoy every item I purchase.
I adore the Nutcrackers Tasseled Christmas Tree Skirt..
I need three of the
Gold-Tone Pierced
Three-Quart Baker.
Thanks for highlighting the wonderful items.

Hi Tina,
So many goodies on the Horchow website! I love drooling over them all. The Mark Roberts fairies and the classic green garland with the huge red balls might have to come and live with me. Thanks for the giveaway and can’t wait to see your new site!

JEssica M on

The Starry Night snowglobe is my favourite!

Donna on

I love, love, love the velvet tree skirt with the Santas around it. It would look so beautiful in my living room. I actually love all of the items Horchow offers. They are so gorgeous and so elegantly beautiful. Happy Thanksgiving.

Gorgeous gold accessories for serving would be perfect for Christmas party (number 10). Just love all of these!!
