Deck The Halls III

Kendra's apron used as a decorative swag
Vintage aprons adorned with Swarovski crystals
and tied to the back of our Dining Room chairs

I decided to have fun with some of our aprons this year and place them around our Dining Room for the holidays. I took two of Kendra's child sized aprons and tied them to the drapes as decorative tie backs (I even put a candy cane ornament in the the pocket one of them) for the curtains, and draped some vintage aprons with Swarovski crystals to the chairs as little skirts. I stole the idea of using aprons as chair skirts from my Aunt, who always has the cutest ones displayed in her all-white kitchen nook. . .

Thanks for having a peek! More to come . . . xo

What a cute and fun idea! Your vintage aprons are really beautiful too (and couldn't help myself from laughing when I read they'd been dolled up with Swarovski crystals).

From the snippets I see of your home in photos it looks really beautiful. Hope you'll take us on a tour someday.
