Warming Winter Wonders

1. Checked Alpaca & Wool Throws

Throws are a “must” during the winter months. They give warmth visually
and physically to any area throughout the home. Textiles of the highest quality alpaca fibers feel softer and smoother than cashmere – ideal for cozy holiday gatherings.

2. Red Cut-Velvet Pillow

Red accents can be used during the holiday season and beyond. Whether you use it sparingly or daringly, the color breathes new life into a room, and pillows can be the quickest and easiest way to change the feel of an interior.

3. Nest Fragrances in Sparkling Cassis

Nest Holiday fragrances make a great host/hostess gift for holiday parties. A new fragrance this season, “Sparkling Cassis” presents the essence of sparkling champagne infused with aromas of crème de cassis, frosted cranberry, and wild fig.

Serve Up Some Shimmer

1. Olive Branch Trivet by Michael Aram

Not only is this great for hot serving pieces, but it’s a great item to be hung on the kitchen wall. Mix different ones to create an interesting botanical grouping. The festive metallic tones are perfect for the season

2. Cero Cake Plates by Arte Italica with Ornaments

Think outside the box with serving pieces – they aren’t only for the buffet. Here they’re used to anchor a centrepiece. Two stacked cake plates topped with glittered ornaments can dress up your table. 

3. Shell Serving Bowl by Annie Glads with Orchid

Again, being creative with serving pieces can add warmth and striking elegance. Adding some botanicals and moss to this serving bowl creates a dramatic look for an entrance hall or table.

Holiday Hosting

The bold red hue of these holiday napkins is the perfect backdrop to display icy napkin rings, creating a classic winter aesthetic for your table setting.

Never show up to the holiday party empty-handed. When gifting your host or hostess with a traditional bottle of wine, dress it up with this frosty wine glass, Santa Claus cover, or snowy gift bag.

3. Beaded Coasters

These festive beaded coasters with jingle bell borders are a yuletide table accessory that adds an air of elegance to any dinner party.

Transitional Trimmings

1. Porcelain Rectangular Vases

Try using fresh new accessories that can last throughout the fall and winter holidays. These vases carry festive holiday colors but will look just as fresh and seasonal well into winter.

2. Seedling Tree Sculptures

Bright, gold leaf metal tree sculptures displayed on black marble bases supply a festive tone but will complement most any season or décor style.

3. Longleaf Pine Sculptures

For a whimsical and nature-inspired accent, these antiqued-silver longleaf pinecone sculptures displayed on charcoal-stained concrete bases are wonderfully transitional.

Festive Foraging

1. Books and Candles

Is there anything cozier? These rustic tree limb candles housed in a triangular iron frame pair with a tied stack of old books topped with greenery to cultivate a comforting holiday ambiance.

2. Eclectic Arrangements

Neutral ceramic crocks become seasonal vases when filled with magnolia trimmings from your yard. A primitive dough bowl filled with whimsical ornaments makes for a subtle holiday accent or centerpiece on any table.

3. Evergreen Ensconced Candelabra

This large, striking iron candelabra holds pillar candles and would work well in any season. Simply add pine cones and greenery from outside to make it a welcoming winter centerpiece.
