Nell Hills Christmas Tablescapes

I recently got to visit Nell Hill's store in Atchinson, KS.
I posted more here.
There was so much to look at it was hard to 
photograph it all!
Here I am sharing a few holiday
tables to give inspiration for December!
 One thing to note in the settings,
all of them use basic dishes and add holiday
items like ornaments or greenery.

 You don't have to go
out and buy a complete set
of Christmas china to 
obtain the look of a great holiday table.
 I liked the pastels mixed with ornaments.
 But I think this green table was my favorite.
How about you?
Thanks for visiting!

Nell Hill's Dish Display

I was lucky enough to go on a recent vacation
with my husband to Kansas City.
He got to tour the Harley Davidson Plant
and I got to go shopping at Nell Hill's 2 stores!
I have broken down my pictures into 
a few posts -this one is about dish displays.
 For those of you that don't know Nell Hills is a home decor, interior design, entertaining store
that originated in Atchinson and now has a 2nd store in Kansas City.
It's wall to wall eye candy for the dish, textile, decor lover.
 I thought it was so interesting how all of the dishes were
displayed in different cabinets, hutches and cupboards.
 If you are a dish lover like me you are always looking
for ways to change up your china cabinet and shelves.
 Each room seems to have a them of color or patter.
See below all the white and yellow theme.

 Most was decorated for Christmas
they had just hosted their holiday event the 
weekend prior to our visit.
 Love the green and white in the white
cabinet, which would look great anytime of year.
 I also loved the white owl
peaking out from the top of the black 
rounded hutch.

Next I will post more about the store and holiday decor,
then on Thursday some of the tabletops for Christmas!

White Rabbit Cottage

You may remember that over the Labor Day
weekend, Miss B and I went on a 
Well that seems like a long time ago, 
but I am finally getting around to sharing the 
Atlanta portion of that trip.
We visited several shops in the Atlanta area
recommended by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch.
I knew they would all be fabulous, because
Susan has great taste.
The first was White Rabbit Cottage in Marietta GA.

 I have used some of their holiday pictures from
their Facebook page here to
show you a tiny bit of their holiday selection.
All the non-holiday pictures were from my visit.
 Grab a cup of tea and get ready for some shopping!

 The store, which is actually 2 buildings,
is a delightful mix of furniture,
home goods and accessories.

 Allow for plenty of time to shop
when visiting!

 Wonderful accents and pillows!

 I got great ideas for accessory placement,
which is often hard to style.

 Wonderful vignettes of what I would 
call elegant country style.

 Things for the pet lover!

 Seasonal decor 
(there was more autumn at that time
but I did not post most of those pictures)
 Tons of dishes, napkins and table jewelry!

 White Rabbits (of course)
 Lots of gift items, perfect for holiday or bridal
birthday or thank you presents.

 The staff was friendly and helpful.
The store was such a delight to visit.

And finally a special greenhouse/conservatory
full of gardening accessories!
I hope you enjoyed the shopping ~please visit their store
if you are ever in the Atlanta area.
I will post more from our Atlanta visit soon.
