Mix with the best this Christmas

5244.jpg?width=1200&height=630&quality=8

Vermouths, bitters, fruit liqueurs – retro mixers are just the thing for a festive cocktail

A sniff of vermouth will always make me think of Christmas. It’s a nostalgic thing: a drop of one of the big brands of herb and spice-infused fortified wines, mixed liberally with R Whites lemonade, was the tipple that my usually abstemious elderly female relatives preferred at the one time of the year they allowed themselves a drink.

Each aunt or grandmother had a preference, and coming across various hip young bar-tending things talking up each of them in turn ­– Cinzano, Martini, or the vermouth-based, quinine-laced aperitif Dubonnet – has been one of the more amusing features of vermouth’s reinvention as a fashionable drink in recent years.

Let This Abundance Of Christmas Tree Inspo Help You Choose Your Tree’s Aesthetic

In a perfect world, we’d all leave our Christmas trees up year-round. Whether or not your family celebrated Christmas! The plant-lover and decor-obsessive in me just loves everything about the joy and beauty Christmas trees bring to a space, and I always spend December drinking in as much Christmas tree inspiration as I possibly can.

My own family trims the tree in a classic, home-y fashion. We have ornaments we made as children, plus others collection on family trips and even more gifted to one another. That said, plenty of people approach their trees with a planned-out aesthetic, and these are the ones I could look at for hours. I love a tree trimmed to the nines with giant ornaments, ribbon, lights, poinsettias—the works!

I used to turn to Pinterest for my Christmas tree inspo, but lately I’ve been stalking holiday hashtags on Instagram instead, and I’m impressed with what I’ve found. There are so many cool creators out there dreaming up beautiful Christmas tree aesthetics, from candyland to goth to a tree covered in roses. If I could, I’d buy a whole Christmas tree farm and decorate each one a completely different way!

For now, though, I’m stuck with the ornaments of my youth, and I mean “stuck with” in the best way possible. I made ’em, and I love ’em! That said, I’ll definitely still be swooning over others’ beautifully-curated decorations, including the 12 trees I rounded up below. Some are colorful, others ornate, others so full you can barely see the branches beneath the ornaments. All are absolutely spectacular.

Ready to unleash the Christmas spirit and find your new holiday aesthetic? Read on for all the Christmas tree inspo you could ever ask for. And if you haven’t gotten a tree yet, jump on Amazon and order a faux one for under $100 ASAP! It’s not too late!

All White

If colorful ornaments feel too harsh, opt for an all-white look a la Instagram user theblondeonabudget, who utilized white poinsettias, ornaments and even a white fur boa in lieu of traditonal garland. Use a flocked tree for a total white-out.

Pink & Red

I’m a sucker for a pink and red color combo all year round, so I really love how Instagram user jenniferperkins decorated her tree. I especially love the unique ornaments she used at the top instead of a traditional star. So fun!

Black Accents

Holiday goths, unite! Instagram user collingwood_home decorated their beautiful tree with big black stars and black and gold ornaments. It’s a bold choice, but one that feels intentional, not overdone or cheesy, thanks to the elevated ornaments.

Champagne Glitz

“Our tree is a ‘champagne’ tree,” shares Instagram user jennyeveryday. “It’s not exactly gold and not exactly silver. Somewhere in the middle! It pairs perfectly with all of our vintage pastel and candy colored ornaments and really makes everything so much more magical!”

 

STYLECASTER | Christmas Tree Inspo

Red + Ribbons

Rather than opt for a classic tree topper, Instagram user frappsandfrills went for a massive red and pink bow, which perfectly complimented the decor on her stair railing. She also used red ornaments of all different sizes and pink poinsettia flowers to give her tree a unique, festive-femme touch.

Snow Balls & Pine Cones

Round ornaments? So basic. Instagram user our_home_interior_3 really upped the ante with these fluffy white faux snowballs, perfectly accented by pine cones and jet-black present boxes for contrast.

Pink Candyland

“Each year, I add on a new room in my home to decorate and this year, I decided to tackle the kitchen/breakfast nook!” shares Instagram user taylor.bell.duck. “The candy-land theme fit perfectly for the space and I love how it turned out! It the perfect amount of sweet, pink fun!”

 

STYLECASTER | Christmas Tree Inspo

White, Gold + Green

For a classic aesthetic with a frosty touch, Instagram user sunnygacharm paired her flocked Christmas tree with green, white and metallic ornaments for a still-festive color scheme that leans more earthy and neutral. The oversized star topper is the perfect finishing touch.

 

STYLECASTER | Christmas Tree Inspo

Blue Christmas

Blue isn’t exactly a tradional Christmas color, but Instagram user jusminda_homedecor totally nailed this blue tree. She used a silver faux tree so the green didn’t contrast, and even had a little nutcracker guarding it at its base.

 

STYLECASTER | Christmas Tree Inspo

Rose Gold Snowflakes

Rather than bubblegum pink, Instagram user designisntagamble utilized a pale metallic pink, almost like a rosé, to trim her beautiful tree. I especially love the massive snowflake ornaments and that beautiful snowflake tree topper!

 

STYLECASTER | Christmas Tree Inspo

Pink Roses & Silver

Instagram user carlyspinkfairytale‘s tree is so pretty, I’d be tempted to leave it up all year long. If ever a springtime Christmas tree existed, these pink roses would be on it.

 

STYLECASTER | Christmas Tree Inspo

Blue Patterned Ribbon

Another blue tree I love is by Instagram user georginashomedecor, and it’s so heavily decorated, I can barely see the tree itself! They went for multiple ribbons including one with a festive blue pattern, plus white and blue ornaments with snowflake details.

A Little Farmhouse Christmas Tour

ornament and Christmas tree skirt

Christmas in the family room 7

I started this blog at Christmastime.

Yep.

Eight. Years. Ago.

It seems like yesterday and foreverago all at the same time.

We had jumped to the middle of the country and had finished renovating our home and I was lonely. I missed my friends in Texas and I wanted to connect and share and talk about lampshades and farmhouses and kitchens and why it was so hard to decide which paint color went where. I needed to talk.

And talk and talk and talk some more.

But more importantly? I needed someone to listen.

So I gathered myself and my Christmas decorations and my projects and all the before’s and after’s my farmhouse had and decided I was going to jump again.

Right into the world of blogging.

Christmas in the family room 9

Christmas in the family room 1

I knew what I wanted to write about.

Christmas decorations.

All the merry and bright that filled my house.

Rooms full of wreaths and greenery and tiny houses at the window and a basket full of handmade trees on my kitchen counter.

rotating calendar

white Christmas tree

Noel on white Christmas tree

I wanted to write about neutral trees.

And how I figured out a basket makes a perfect tree skirt.

And how I found these ornaments that look vintage on a clearance table long ago for only .57 each.

Stuff just like that.

stairs and kitchen

Christmas hutch 1

Christmas trees on hutch

Oh the plans I had.

I was going to write the perfect decorating blog with well-written witty posts about how to decorate…..

….and insider tips for the perfect room.

It was going to be fancy.

And amazing.

And super-educated with brilliant ideas on “how high to hang your chandelier” and “how to mix colors and patterns and textures and color with dramatic flair”.

Christmas in the family room 12

Christmas in the family room 4

Christmas in the family room 11

There was just one little problem.

Back then? Before I started this blog? I didn’t know how to take photographs.

Seriously.

It was totally embarrassing.

Christmas in the family room 8

I had those cameras that were yellow and disposable.

You know.

The ones that you threw away after you took it to Walgreens to get it developed.

Pitiful.

Shameful.

How could I start a blog with pictures like that?

Christmas mantel

And then?

I came up with a brilliant plan.

I hired a photographer who worked for a local magazine to come to the house and take pictures of the Christmas decorations.

stockings on mantel

The photographer came out to the house and photographed every room.

And then a week later the photos showed up in my inbox.

SERIOUSLY.

I couldn’t believe it.

The photos were amazing. I couldn’t wait to share them. I couldn’t wait to show them off. I couldn’t wait to write my first post. I couldn’t wait to launch my blog and these photos and my words out into the world.

Christmas in the family room 3

dough bowl and ornaments

So I sat down at the computer to begin and I couldn’t contain my excitement.

This was it.

This was where it all began.

Oh, the post I was going to write.

I had it all planned out. It was going to be on the scintillating topic of using neutrals and textures in your Christmas decorating.  My fingers hovered over the keyboard with post swirling in my head as I looked at the pictures one more time for inspiration.

And as I stared at those wonderful, brilliant, amazing photographs willing the decorating words of wisdom to leap onto the page….

…my heart sank.

hutch and reindeer

stairs and kitchen

neutral staircase

Because right there in the middle of my about-to-be-brilliantly-written-post on expert Christmas decorating was my Wal-Mart Christmas tree with its giant plastic feet and scraggly trunk elongated by the wide-angle lens….

….without a tree skirt in sight.

What?

Seriously?

No tree skirt? How could that be?

I was going to be an expert.

I was going to be a professional.

I was going to be the voice of decorating for the twenty-first century.

*sigh*

And so it was that seven years ago my blog determined its own voice.

When on that long-ago December day I sat down at the computer with my tattered pride and my shredded dignity and introduced myself to the world like this:

“Hi!  My name is KariAnne….

…and I don’t have a tree skirt.”

bows on staircase

doorway and stairbowl

chandelier

I’ve never forgotten another tree skirt and I’m still Christmas decorating.

I’m still writing.

I’m still sharing my heart and laughing and sharing and tell stories and in keeping it real news? I’m still taking pictures that need a little help.

How do I know?

I just edited myself out of the reflection of a Christmas ornament or two. 🙂

Thanks for listening and thanks for taking a tour of this year’s Christmas decor.

Be sure and stop by and visit a few of my friends and their amazing tours, too.

The Many Uses Of Outdoor Mannequins

Take them out of store windows and put them onto your yard.

By Jessie Schiewe

There are a lot of things that don’t belong outside. Pets, children, refrigerators, books, and household electronics are just a few things that come to mind.

But mannequins? Though not originally intended for the great outdoors, they can make for wonderful lawn accoutrement. From fending off burglars to protesting nosy neighbors, they have more uses than just modeling clothes.

Here are 10 recent instances of homeowners who have come up with innovative and, at times, disruptive ways of incorporating mannequins onto their lawns.


To piss neighbors off:

A few months ago, when a Santa Rosa man was forced to lower the height of his brand new fence after neighbors complained about it being too tall, he sought retaliation by arranging a quintet of naked mannequins outdoors. Jason Windus, who runs a moving company, obtained the male and female mannequins from an old haul-away job and he kept them in storage because he knew he’d find a use for them someday.

Windus originally erected the 6-foot tall fence around his corner lot property so that his big dogs could run around the yard without being able to escape. But an anonymous neighbor took umbrage with its tall height and reported it.

The city sided with the neighbor, citing its tall stature as a potential risk to drivers by blocking on-coming cross traffic from around the corner. They gave Windus two options: either chop the fence to half its height or move it back 15 feet closer to the home. He chose the former.

“You want me to cut my fence down?” Windus told KPIX 5. “Now you get to see what’s behind the fence.”

He placed the mannequins — some of which lacked arms and even bodies, being just a head — on his lawn, seating them in wicker chairs around a patio table, and positioning their heads so that they gazed out at the street, staring down Windus’ turncoat neighbors. One of them even wore an old military helmet, with Windus joking that he was keeping guard over the other outdoor mannequins.

But not everyone loved his free peep show. Within days of placing the dummies in his yard, a thief stole two of them.

“It was just a little joke,” Windus told the publication. “A lot of people would get very angry about having to cut their fence down. I throw a naked party in my yard!”

To make political statements:

During the summer of 2008, a North Carolina man took inspiration for his lawn art from the upcoming presidential elections. He stationed four mannequins outdoors and named them Barack Obama, John McCain, Michelle Obama, and Cindy McCain.

Paul Scott’s Obama and McCain mannequins each wore rubber masks bearing the politicians’ faces, and were dressed in their respective political party colors. They also had surgical hoses hanging from their you-know-what’s.

Scott would bring the mannequins outside every Sunday after church. He’d hang out on his porch with a cup of coffee in-hand, watching the shocked and amused onlookers who passed by his property. Cars would inch by at 10 mph just to take in the odd lawn display, and some drivers would stop and park to get a photo of the quartet. One man flipped Scott the bird while his kids were in the backseat of his car. A few even chatted with Scott.

“We met this one guy from Oak Ridge. He had just lost his job and had been downsized,” Scott told the newspaper, News & Record. “Anyway, he told me he had been so depressed. But when he saw this, he said, ‘We need this.’”

At the time, Scott hadn’t decided whether he’d be voting for Obama or McCain. In fact, he wasn’t really enamored with either candidate.

“Why don’t they tell us what they want to do? Have you seen one ad where they’re not putting each other down?” he told his local newspaper. “It’s sad. Remember after 9-11? Remember how close people were? Now, everyone is looking out for themselves. They’ve stopped working together. We’re all being urinated on.”

Scott’s outdoor mannequins led to a fair amount of complaints to the city, and deputies stopped by his house a few times to see if he’d take them down. But in the end it was his property, and his right to do with it as he wanted — even if he wasn’t sure exactly what that was.


To attract tourism:

A Georgia man spent three years erecting life-sized battle displays from the Civil War on his front yard.

Kevin Smith clothed his outdoor mannequins in period-appropriate uniforms, including vintage waistcoats, knee-high boots, and short-billed caps, and gave them each their own prop weapons. In keeping with the historic theme, he also planted Confederate flags around his property.

His goal with the 2016 display? To educate others and attract business to the historic town which, he said, played an important role in the Civil War.

“I tried to put the display around town so [that] tourists can see the history and draw tourism here,” Smith told NBC affiliate station, WRCB. “This is a part of our history. It is to educate so we don’t fight another war.”

The local housing authorities weren’t as impressed with Smith’s mannequin display and ordered him to take it down, specifically noting the removal of the Confederate flags. If he didn’t, he would be removed from his home. The homeowner vowed to fight the edict, although it is not known how things eventually panned out for him.

To save lives:

Helping people recover from drug addictions can be difficult and emotionally grueling, but one Ohio couple felt they were up to the task when, in 2016, they erected a macabre mannequin display in their yard.

It featured a woman dressed in black lace holding a life-sized doll as she gazed into an open coffin containing the body of a male mannequin. A handwritten poster leaning against the display read: “Is this really what it takes to get you off drugs?”

Stoney and Shirley Oney had long used outdoor mannequins and props they found at garage sales to decorate their yard. Usually, they opted for more upbeat dioramas celebrating holidays such as Memorial Day or things they loved, like country music.

But the spate of deaths they’d witnessed in recent years from people overdosing on drugs or otherwise ruining their lives because of them motivated them to create a more impactful display.

«So many people are OD-ing in Mansfield and we’ve heard of two today,” Shirley told NBC affiliate station, WKYC. “Maybe this is a reality check. If it helps one person, we’ll be grateful.”


To titillate:

A dentist in New Jersey with a penchant for setting up holiday-themed mannequins outside of his practice took his normally PG displays to an R-rated level this Easter.

Carrying baskets filled with eggs and sporting bunny ears, Wayne Gangi dressed his entirely female cast in fishnet stockings and the same black satin bodysuits worn by Hugh Hefner’s famed Playboy Bunny models. He also included an ode to Austin Powers, dressing one of the mannequins in a sheer pink teddy similar to the ones worn by the film’s fembots. According to NorthJersey.com, Gangi bought the dummies and their outfits online through eBay, shelling out between $250 and $500 for each one.

While many locals were amused by the set-up, halting their bike rides to take photos against the zany backdrop, others were offended.

“Proves he has zero respect for women and the young girls of our town,” one neighbor told the website, Global News.

Within a matter of days, Gangi’s outdoor mannequin display was vandalized by a local woman who deemed it too offensive to be allowed to remain up. She attacked the mannequins with a pair of garden shears in the middle of the afternoon on a Tuesday, and then curtsied when she finished.

By Friday afternoon, however, the mannequins were back on Gangi’s lawn, and the dentist had already placed an order for three new mannequins — including one male. As he spruced up the display, stringing a disco ball from a tree, Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive” blared from his speakers.

To show off personality:

Is there anything worse than blending in? Not to Mary Denslow.

Growing up, the Salt Lake City resident dreamed of having a yard that was unique, one that reflected her personality and views on life. And, when she eventually bought her own house, that’s exactly what she’s created.

On any given day of the year, there are three mannequins on Denslow’s front yard dressed in garish, occasionally gender-bending outfits that she changes regularly. She found them years ago at a yard sale, and they were originally used at Petco, of all places. She named them: Kevin, Brandy, and Trent.

Around June, the trio wear graduation gowns. In the summer, they sport sun hats, swimming goggles, and even pool floaties around their arms. By September, when kids are heading back to school, Denslow slings backpacks around the mannequins’ shoulders.

But outdoor mannequins aren’t the only wacky items on display at her house. Denslow also has two larger-than-life dog sculptures that she named Artie and Winston.

“Always be odd, never be average, because it’s so boring to be average — I mean, everybody’s average,” she told the Utah news website, KSL.com. “Be that ‘different drummer.’ That’s the way I was raised. That’s the way I raised my kids. Be that ‘different drummer.’” 


To protest:

When a four-story condominium building threatened to block a Spokane, Washington resident’s view of a historic gothic revival cathedral, he decided to protest — with mannequins.

Jim Mahoney purchased his home in 1985 and was particularly taken with its prime view of the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist. Erected in the 1920s, the decant structure features flying buttresses, stained glass windows, and a tower containing a 49-bell carillon.

But the new development — built on the foundation of a shorter, rundown historic home — threatened to obstruct Mahoney’s view, and, he argued, would change the nature of the once sleepy street.  

Offended and upset, he created an ever evolving menagerie of weird and unsettling mannequins to make his feelings about the new building clear. They included a one-eyed pregnant woman, a woman with bat wings, an aboriginal figure sitting in a chair, and lots of passive aggressive signs.

His goal? To get the owners to tear down the building.

“In true spirit of protest, why stop after a week?” he told The Spokesman Review. “If it’s worth doing, then it’s worth doing for a couple decades.”

If that’s really how Mahoney felt, he’s likely still protesting the development with his unsettling outdoor mannequins to this day. Because the building, which started selling off its condominiums before construction was even completed, was never demolished.


For art:

When you take a headless, armless mannequin and dress her in lacey lingerie, what do you call that? To Tony Papadimitirou, it’s art.

In fact, every item on the 63-year-old’s Pennsylvania lawn could be considered art, particularly because they’re all painted pink. From the angel statue to the claw-footed bathtub, the cruiser bicycle to the antique dresser, everything on Papadimitirou’s property has been covered in an attention-grabbing shade of Pepto Bismol pink.

And Papadimitirou, who likes to sit on his lawn, admiring his work while listening to Italian music, should know a thing or two about art, considering that was his major when he was an undergraduate.

“I like to be different,” he told NBC affiliate station, WGAL. “I don’t take life serious. I think life should be fun.”

In 2014, neighbors called the cops because of his flamboyant lawn display. Nothing, however, came of it because the authorities agreed with Papadimitirou: It’s art and you can’t quash creative expression.

To ward off home invasions:

If you don’t want burglars to break into your house, consider using outdoor mannequins as a scare tactic. And don’t just make them look creepy, do unsettling things with them to really hone the fact that the people who live there (a.k.a. you) are not to be messed with.

There’s a house in the Appalachian mountains of Kentucky that seems to have followed this advice. A Redditor drove past it five years ago, describing the area as being secluded and “in the middle of nowhere.”

The house had at least 20 mannequins of all shapes, sizes, and genders scattered throughout the yard. Some were laying down, while others were propped against the house and adjoining shed. They all “looked really old and worn out, moldy [and] rotting.”

There were also mannequin bodies in the trees. A female dummy was tied to one near the road, so close to the street that those driving past could reach out and touch her. Another mannequin was the size of a baby and instead of being tied to the tree, it was nailed.

“I have seen things like, ‘66 place of Satan!!!’ and stuff like that on the sides of barns…People feel they need to do this in order to protect their privacy,” the Redditor wrote. “[But], thinking about [that house] still creeps me out.”


To recycle:

Mannequins are constructed with all kinds of materials, including fiberglass, metal, vinyl, and styrofoam. But the one thing they have in common is that they’re all environmentally unfriendly. The materials they are made with are not biodegradable and can take eons to break down in landfills.

Those who know this try to come up with ulterior uses for mannequins, especially because many of them are still in great shape despite technically being considered trash.

Judi Henderson-Townsend, who runs Mannequin Madness, a company based out of Oakland, California that sells used dummies, has seen customers come up with a number of creative uses over the years to keep them out of landfills. One customer turned a silver mannequin into a mailbox. Others have turned them into planters.

You don’t have to do much with a mannequin for it to look cool, especially if you put it in an untraditional place like your front yard. Henderson-Townsend has four dummies outside of her house, one of whom is kneeling on the ground next to a path.

“She’s so cute,” Henderson-Townsend told OK Whatever. “She looks like a little garden goddess.”

Turning a mannequin into a mailbox will certainly make your house memorable to passersby. (Photo: Judi Henderson-Townsend/ Mannequin Madness )

DIY Terrarium With Succulents – Dollar Tree Christmas Decorations

Who doesn’t love a terrarium? Especially when it’s mini! These adorable terrarium ornaments offer up a little ecosystem that you can use to decorate for the holidays with the added bonus of living way longer than the short yuletide season! Hang one (or a few) around the house or make them as the perfect gift for neighbors, friends, or coworkers!

DIY Terrarium Ornaments

DIY Terrarium Ornaments Suppliers

Supplies you’ll need to craft the succulent Christmas tree ornaments:

  • Clear glass ornaments (the larger the easier it is to make these!)
  • Small funnel
  • Gardening gloves
  • Dry soil
  • Moss
  • Succulents or other live greenery
  • Scissors
  • Skewer
  • Ribbon or twine as desired
  • Small cup (optional)

How to make the succulent Christmas tree decoration

DIY Terrarium Ornaments Instructions

Step 1: Prepare the bucket

To start we found a small bucket that fit out large bulb and placed the bulb on the bucket to steady it. Remove the metal cap on the ornament and prep your terrarium supplies.

Step 2: How to make a terrarium

Next, you will start the base of your terrarium. You can add small pebbles to the bottom if you want better drainage (like you would with a larger terrarium) or you can just go straight for your soil since these are so small. Pour dry (the drier the easier it is to maneuver it) through the funnel and into the bulb. If needed, use a skewer or skinny pen or stick to break up clumps of dirt.

Step 3: Attention on the roots

Next, pull off a very small piece of your succulent. You can place the succulent with the roots attached into the soil if you’re able (if it is small enough). If you can’t maneuver this then just cut off a small piece from the top of your succulent that will fit through the neck of the bulb. The succulent will eventually propagate and grow a root system so long as it is in the soil, being watered, and getting enough light.

Step 4: Add moss

Add moss and any other greenery or trinkets you want to your little planter (here we added a small vintage light bulb just for a little something extra in our big bulb). Use the skewer to manipulate the items down in the bulb to get them where you want them.

Step 5: Drops of water

Once everything is in place, add just a few drops of water to your little bulb terrarium and reinsert the metal cap.

Finish off the ornament with a ribbon bow, some twine, or yarn to polish it off!
