Christmas Décor – Carol from The Design Pages

Today, Carol is going to share with us what her perfect Christmas party would look like!  Enjoy.  I hope all of your holiday celebrations are going well this year!


Hi everyone,  I”m Carol from The Design Pages and I’m so happy to be here today sharing my thoughts on Christmas while Kristy gets her new life in Austin in order.

Christmas is my very favourite time of year.  Our family loves to host parties at any time of year but we like to ramp it up during the holidays.  My good intentions to put on a stunningly beautiful, magazine worthy party rarely come to fruition but if people leave with full bellies and smiles then it was a good night.  Here’s a peek at what my perfect party would include.

Of course, my house would look like this –


A beautiful and festive front porch to set the tone -

A colourful entrance –


A perfectly set table –


Little touches of Christmas everywhere –



Then we’d get to the good stuff –



Well I guess I’ll have to get working if this is what I’m hoping to accomplish this year:)  Thanks for indulging me everyone!  To see more of what I’ve created throughout the holiday season drop by and visit me at my blog.  Thanks for having me over today Kristy.

Thanks, Carol!  Sounds like it will be a beautiful party!  Merry Christmas, everyone!!



  1. these images are so beautiful! and is it just me or is anyone else really sad christmas will be here and over in just a couple days. i don’t want it to be gone!

  2. I came across your blog via Carol! Glad I found it, I can’t wait to see what you do with your rental home. I too have moved many times and am currently in a rental home, until we find the right house {we are picky too, now on our 4 year renting – ugh!}

    Good luck settling in! Can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2012!

  3. So beautiful! Pretty sure that first shot is my dream home. :)

  4. A dose of pretty never hurts anyone. Neither does a little “nip.”

    Yup, Carol, I’d say you have a good handle on the perfect Christmas.
