So, I know not everyone is ready for the holidays, but if we’ve been friends for any amount of time, you’re probably aware of my Christmas obsession. Plus, the addition of kid number three right before the holidays/feeling essentially miserable being this pregnant have given me motivation to get things done early. Our stockings are hung by the chimney with care (yay for having a mantle!) already, and we'll be putting up our tree tonight (first artificial tree ever for me - still not quite sure how I feel about it...). I’m working some kind of combo fall/Christmas tablescape in the dining room since we’ll be hosting Thanksgiving here, but otherwise it's all Christmas, all the time. Anyways, the point is that I’ve had a lot of people ask about our stockings over the past few years, and I thought I’d take the opportunity to provide the information, as well as some other adorable options. Maybe it will cut down on shopping time for even just a few of you?
Here’s our set-up above (as always, a beautiful iPhone photo). This year I added these ornaments from Target. They’re cute and cheap and can be changed up whenever the fancy strikes. Linking these stockings as well as other fun options below (click on the photos for the link)!
These are ours...Pottery Barn's Channel Quilted Velvet Stocking (In Ivory, Medium size). I started buying these when Eloise was a baby because I figured they would never stop making them. The only thing is that the font is a little different any time I order for a new child (like sizing and the fact that Emmett’s is in bold) so if you have extreme OCD tendencies, it will drive you bonkers. It does drive me bonkers, but not enough to re-order. Haha.
Can't get over the cuteness of the knitted ones from West Elm, especially the one on the left.
A felt version from West Elm.
Love these McGee & Co. Stockings.
And this red plaid one from the Hearth and Hand line at Target.
And this one from the same line.
Another Target one from the Sugar Paper line (do yourself a favor and look at everything they designed while you're there :). There's another version with a pink pom as well.
Because Anthro can do no wrong.
P.S. In terms of stocking holders, I went with basic ones so we could put other things on the mantle, but these are my other favs...marble and tree ones from West Elm, an adorable little house (Anthro), cute bunnies (Anthro), this cute little village (Target), and more houses (Target).
