{Guest Post} White Cabana's Christmas

I'd like to introduce you to a dear friend and fellow blogger, Jordana of White Cabana. Jordana and I met over Twitter and became fast friends, bonding over our love of blogging, home decor, fashion and education (she is currently pursuing her MBA!). While she blogs about her love of all things white, she does dabble in colour for the holidays. Today, let's tour White Cabana's Christmas decor! ~ Rox-Anne, Celebrating this Life

Thanks, Rox-Anne, for letting me share some of my home with your readers! I’m excited to be here, and I hope you enjoy this slice of Christmas décor.

While I live most of my design life in white, at Christmas, I do like to inject some traditional style into my home through the use of red and green. In my living room, I have a trio of small objets that are inexpensive but charming. I hand-painted the Ho-Ho-Ho rock many years ago, and I recently picked up the Made in Sweden Santa from HomeSense this season. The foxy snow globe was a Target purchase from a few years ago. It make me smile every time I shake it and twist the music on.

I love fresh flowers year-round, and when I saw the holly branches at St. Jacobs market last week, I had to have them. They’re easy to style and they last for ever. I have them placed throughout my home.

I know a lot of people collect Santas, but I’ve been trying to grow my reindeer collection. I adore the four that I have, and I’m always keeping an eye for other interesting figures to add to this set.

My Christmas tree is definitely my favourite holiday addition. I pick up my fresh tree from Ikea each year (not as charming as cutting down a tree from a tree farm, but it’s really convenient). This year’s tree is a fat and glorious gem! I filled it up with my ornament collection. I pick up ornaments when I travel, and I have some treasured pieces from my nephews and niece, too. This tree is full of love, let me tell you!

In the kitchen, I’ve hung my two most favourite Christmas crafts from my teenage years. These two people are made with loads of love. I found the pattern and instructions from an issue of Marie Claire Idées magazine, and I labored over every stitch. These two are sweet characters that bring me happy memories. I’m so glad my mom taught me how to sew when I was young!

I hope you enjoyed this short tour around my home. Thanks again, Rox-Anne, for having me! Merry Christmas, everyone!
