Aurora…a small quaint snowy New York village on the short of Cayuga Lake. A village with a colorful past, rich in history and historical landmarks. Aurora, a place with old town charm, historic homes and buildings, tranquil open spaces, breathtaking views, the comforts of a small town community, and a slower pace of life. Trees covered in blankets of snow, warm lights shining from within beautiful homes, and a cup of hot cocoa by the fireplace.
This is Aurora…a place that evokes feelings of home and the comforts that come along with small town charm. Aurora is also home to MacKenzie-Childs, a brand that exudes classic home style and offers handmade pieces that will elevate homes with grace and joy throughout the world, including our home here in Tennessee.
This years Christmas tablescape was inspired by Aurora, New York. I aimed to create a warm inviting Christmas wonderland. A table that brings to life my vision of what the MacKenzie-Childs Victorian farm looks like around the holidays with a new fallen snow and the glistening of candlelight that shines bright from within.
These MacKenzie-Childs Highbanks dinner plates have a painting of their Victorian farm on each of them and this image is exactly how I envision Christmas. They are beautiful and of course perfect to use for everyday family dinners all holiday season long. The Supper Club 3 piece place setting in Royal Check compliments the Highbanks dinner plates so well.
The MacKenzie-Childs Victorian farm is surrounded by nature so I envisioned seeing towering pine trees flocked in fresh fallen snow. To bring this to life, I used bottlebrush trees and snow fluff. The sparkle and tartan dinner candles light up my vision of the farm and add warmth and peace.
I’m thrilled with how my vision of Aurora, New York and the MacKenzie-Childs Victorian farm came to life with this year’s Christmas tablescape. MacKenzie-Childs has a beautiful selection of tabletop pieces that are certain to make your next gathering feel like a scene straight out of a Christmas Hallmark movie. I’ve also shared more of my personal favorite holiday pieces below.
As always, thanks so much for stopping by…see you back here real soon!
