Happy Halloween! Yikes … tomorrow is November! Is it really time to start thing about the holidays? Apparently so! Kristy and I were invited to attend a little Pre-Holiday soiree at one of our favorite stores, Classic Remix Chicago. Us and a handful of other bloggers were given the task of tagging 5 of our favorite items in the store to use or give during the holidays.
That’s Mary, the owner … and her cute pup Charlie.
… and a toast with all of the other fun bloggers we met. Check out some of their creative and fabulous lifestyle blogs: The Kittchen, An Eventful Life, Hunter Style, Cedar and Rush, and Mushroom Stew.
With wine in hand, we set out to peruse the store.
Classic Remix has tons of great gift ideas in their store, and many of the bloggers chose their favorite items to give as holiday gifts. Kristy and I decided to tag things we would recommend for sprucing up your home for the holidays.
Like this chandelier for instance …
With an influx of holiday guests coming into your home this season, why not swap out an old or boring light fixture in your entry with this glamorous number to greet your visitors?
And every good holiday party deserves and good bar cart, doesn’t it?
What a fun place to showcase your fancy barware and cocktail fixings. In a dining room, living room, study … this could work in various rooms of your home.
Next up … these fluffy Mongolian fur pillows ….
Changing out pillows is such an easy way to give a quick update to a room or piece of furniture. These pillows are soooo cozy … and in winter white they feel festive for the holidays.
Our next pick wasn’t exactly one “item” but rather this tablescape of glass votives and hurricanes.
What a lovely and elegant way to dress your table for the holidays, right? You can keep it neutral with white flowers like they’ve done or add in some colorful blooms.
Our fifth pick is small and could also be a good little gift idea …
Aren’t these acrylic coasters cute? Typically you don’t think of coasters as being very glamorous .. but these have a very chic vibe, don’t they? We thought so!
Of course, we were only supposed to tag five items … but there were certainly many more we could have happily put our little Swoon Tag on.
Many thanks to Classic Remix and Nicole Regan of Cedar and Rush for organizing this fun and unique event.
Even better, Classic Remix is offering Swoon readers a 10% off anything in the store from November 10-16! Wouldn’t you love to knock some things off your gift-buying list BEFORE Thanksgiving? Just head on down to 24 E. Erie Chicago and mention Swoon!
Enjoy your weekend!
