FIVE ESSENTIAL DESIGNS FOR HOLIDAY ENTERTAINING

Today we are going to take a look at five of our key designs to see you through the season.

FIVE DESIGNS
The month of December is dawning. So before our minds enter into full-on Christmas mode, we are going to look at five of the designs that every home will be thankful for having on hand during the festive period.

ONE
The floor lamp

Extra lighting to create a warm atmosphere throughout the day is appreciated all the more on special occasions. A table lamp can take up valuable surface space where drinks could otherwise be rested. We always suggest a floor lamp to help create a comforting glow without getting in the way of things.

TWO
The occasional chair

It’s a fact: There are never enough seats in the house at Christmas. An occasional chair solves this continually recurring dilemma. It can provide compact seating that translates to almost any room in the house by moving it from room-to-room when you need extra guest seating.

They’re compact and classic. These little chairs can be brought into the living room post-Christmas lunch to provide an extra place to sit back and will gladly move back into the bedroom or office when your guests have gone.

THREE
The console table

A console table is slim enough that it doesn’t encroach on floor space too heavily. It’s surprising how many unused spots in your home it can take on. They work as display areas and a place to serve food, think a miniature bar or Christmas appetizer station.

FOUR
The spare bedroom

Our unoccupied bedrooms often become a storage hub, a home office, or a playroom, but when you’ve run out of space for your guests to sleep, it needs to return to its original role. Cue the spare bedroom.

The Quiet Moose carries unique and beautiful upholstered beds, bed linens, curtains, and accessories. With a variety of styles to choose from, you can bring a beautiful new look to your spare bedroom decor. Our bed and bed linen selections are traditional in style but not without character.

FIVE
The Christmas candle

We end things on a small and simple note. Just like the floor lamp, candles at Christmas are there to help you create the softest lighting scheme, but those that carry a light citrus/fruit scent work twice as hard.

We love Red Currant. Available as a single and up to a four-wick candle, the wax within these gorgeous vessels are composed of lush, earthy green notes: tart citrus, cassis, tropical fruit, and musk. The aroma is Christmas through and through, but not so much that it will overpower. It lingers, it intermingles with the smell of good festive roasting, and it’s the final piece for setting your Christmas scene.
