Red, plaid, and vintage sounds like the perfect Christmas decoration to me.
I’ve been collecting vintage thermoses for a few years and am using them
mixed in with my Christmas decor this year.
Today’s little vignette is all part of a Pinterest Challenge organized by my
Cindy at County Road 407. She finds an inspiration photo on pinterest and several home bloggers
recreate it with our own spin. If you’re coming over from Decor to Adore, welcome! Laura always has the prettiest ideas! If you’re new here, you can go here to learn a little more about me and this blog → Start Here.
This month’s inspiration comes from
The Grace House Interiors
and the challenge is to create a Christmas crate or basket to use in our
Christmas decor. Isn’t this gorgeous?
The inspiration photo has several elements I wanted to emulate. Here are the
- wood crate
- grouping of various heights of items
- red and green
The crate in the inspiration photo is a graywashed one from Magnolia Home.
Although mine isn’t graywashed, it’s the same shape and size as the one in the inspiration photo.
I found a couple of these crates at TJMaxx a few months ago and got them to help
organize various items around the house. They’re very handy. Tj maxx doesn’t have
them anymore, but I found a similar one for a good price here if you’re
Trees and Greenery
I have a small collection of
bottle brush trees
in different sizes so I added them to the crate and the area next to it. And
I filled in some of the empty space with a few
sprigs of faux baby eucalyptus.

vintage red plaid thermoses
are all different heights, so it was easy enough to recreate that part of
the inspiration photo. The goal of this fun challenge isn’t to copy, but to
recreate the idea in our own way. I like trying to use what I have and the
thermoses fit the bill perfectly, in my humble opinion.
Since the whole thing made me think of hot chocolate and being in the snow,
I added a couple of fun enamel snow gear mugs
from my shop. And I layered everything on a
cozy plaid flannel throw blanket, also from my shop.
I’m just getting started putting up my Christmas decor and this was a fun
way to kick it off. Stay tuned for much more over the next couple of weeks.
