What a great couple of weeks it’s been! Thanksgiving is just around the corner but if you’re a planner like me the you’re already getting ideas together for your Christmas decor. This year I decided to add buffalo check to my Christmas decor and I’ve had a great time finding some items on Shutterfly that compliment my decor this year!

I started off by making some plates using Shutterfly’s ” Design your Own Plate” Simply click Design Your Own Plate > Backgrounds> and choose the check pattern.

Buffalo Check Plates

I love how they turned out!

I layered it with this white and green plate, along with a wooden embellishment!

Stay tuned for the entire tablescape in a few weeks!!!

I also thought it would be great to send our guests home with a little stocking stuffer. These gingham printed playing cards are perfect. I think it would even be great for after dinner. I know my family loves a great game of spades or war! Or even go fish for the little ones. Everyone needs a deck of cards!

I wrapped them up with satin ribbon and attached these printables onto them. You can find the printable here >>>Deck the Halls Printable Tags Just Destiny Mag

Shutterfly recently added double sided pillows which I think is genius! So now I can use these pillows year around in this room! All these patterns and more are available on Shutterfly.com! 


I also made a blanket in the buffalo check pattern too! This blanket is GORGEOUS friends. Amazing quality and perfect for cold nights and Christmas gifts.

Head to Shutterfly.com> Home Decor> Blankets> Design your Own> Backgrounds> and choose the black and white check pattern!

Mantel Decor

Shutterfly also offers art prints! I made this collection of snowy scenes and it set off the entire theme for my holiday decor this year. It doesn’t snow around these parts, but it’s beautiful to imagine. 

I decorate my mantel with some metal prints in various sizes. 

To make your own prints you can head to Shutterfly.com> Home Decor>Metal Prints>

From there you can choose Art Prints and pick a size. You’ll find all three of these prints in the landscape collections!

I love creating my own pieces on Shutterfly and I hope you will too! Not everything you imagine is on the shelfs at our big box stores. So how nice is that you can dream up just about anything and have Shutterfly make it a reality!
