Chinoiserie Chic Christmas


With the holidays quickly approaching, here we have been amassing dozens of wonderful ideas to have yourself a chic Chinoiserie Christmas. You will be seeing everything from Chinoiserie ornaments, home decorating ideas, hostess gifts, the best of Etsy, and gifts for the Chinoiserie lover in your life. We start today with Christmas cards. These are the cards I will be sending out. Replete with coral pink flamingos with gilt legs and scarves, to the palm trees with gold trunks and Chinese red, to the coral pink and gold Christmas tree and amaryllis, these Crane cards are perfect. My Christmas party invitations are these Kate Spade with the pink monkey and parasol. Wait until you see the gorgeous stamps I will be using!




Be forewarned that these fabulous Year of the Ox stamps are 42 cent stamps, so will require a 2 cent stamp. But they are too fabulous to pass up. This link page has a 2 cent stamp that will look great with it.
