In an Uptown home with four energetic children under the age of 12, Kristina Fortier of Porter New Orleans created a glistening winter wonderland that the entire family enjoyed. Using a palette of Sugar Plum Fairy hues in the living room, she decorated the bookcases, coffee table, and a handsome chest of drawers with splendid nutcrackers, glittery cottages, and touches of iced greenery.
"I love to tweak the homeowner's own accessories to build a holiday look. In a fantastic handcrafted bowl by LiBird Studio, I piled in simple glass balls and in an antique brass bowl, I added seasonal faux foliage," she explains. Gold-edged Annieglass trays, one holding RidgeWalker crimson goblets and another with facemasks as party favors, keep everyone happy.
For the dining table, Kristina went with a kid-friendly tabletop — Relish melamine dishes from Judy at the Rink, Mario Luca Giusti acrylic red goblets from Hilltop Shoppe, and wipeable Caspari placemats from Hazelnut. A collection of LiBird Magnolia Faux Bois Candlesticks, accented with vibrant holiday sprays and berry candle rings, create a simple yet stunning centerpiece.
