Christmas Tour: Decoratively Speaking Events

I've got a treat for you guys today! It's a Christmas tour that is definitely a feast for the eyes. When I started my holiday page on Instagram this season, I happened upon quite a few interior design pages I wasn't yet following with my KCL Instagram. One of which caught my eye with beautiful event design. As we began to near the Christmas season, I noticed this design page posting more and more Christmas decor at various businesses. Talk about a dream job...being able to decorate so many different spaces for the holidays, with many different themes and colors!

As you can imagine, the designer at Decoratively Speaking Events is bound to have beautiful Christmas decor at home as well. From the fun vintage welcome, to the beautiful formal dining room, to the plaid Mackenzie-Childs Breakfast Room; you are sure to find some festive holiday inspo. Grab a cup of coffee (or hot cocoa) and enjoy!

Shopping Guide: The Spode Woodland Servingware Collections {as Seen on The Pioneer Woman}

Spode Woodland
Spode Woodland Plates in Woodland Turkey, Woodland American Wildlife, Woodland Hunting Dogs, and Woodland Pheasant

Spode is an English company that crafts fine ceramics and China, known largely for their holiday patterns and Blue Italian floral pattern. I originally featured the Spode Woodland Turkey plate in a layout for a brown Thanksgiving table setting, and I haven't been able to get it out of my mind. Then I noticed it again on The Pioneer Woman's FB page, and later that day she let readers know where to purchase it. Turns out I'm not the only reader who is obsessed with the beautiful brown and white flowers on these lovely serving dishes.
 

Spode Woodland Turkey Footed Cake Plate


The Spode Woodland Collections, all featuring the beautiful brown floral border, vary from the Woodland Turkey to Woodland Pheasant and a few Woodland Hunting Dog and Woodland Wildlife motifs. The Woodland Turkey set is of course more suited for Thanksgiving entertaining, while the other sets can be used anytime of the year. Although they're all best for autumn entertaining. I love how they can be mixed and matched, and the collections include so much more than a standard 16 piece set. The Spode Woodland collections come in full dish sets with so many add-on pieces like serving trays, cake stands, and even matching linens and coasters. The Woodland Hunting Dogs Collection even comes with a dog bowl and dog treat canister.

Spode Woodland 5 Piece Placesetting



Being that Spode is fine quality China, it is a little pricey, but well worth it if you're looking for dishes to invest in and pass down in your family. Each full 5-piece place setting costs about $100. The Woodland collections can be purchased in smaller sets, so you can add on over time. It's such a classically beautiful and neutral place setting, perfect for passing down as heirloom China. You can shop the Spode collections on the Spode US or UK sites, and you can find a lot of the Spode Woodland and Christmas pieces on discount on Amazon (shop the guide below). You can also find them in stores like Macy's. The Spode Christmas Collection is currently available for up to about 50-75% off, marked down from $350.00 to under $100 for a 12-piece dinner set. *Spode items on Amazon totaling over $35.00 qualify for FREE SHIPPING.
