Welcome to Favorite Things Friday #4………Decorating with Plaids!


Festive ideas for decorating with plaids for the holidays via Our Southern Homr

It doesn't matter if you are from the south, up north, out west or another country for that matter….plaids are hot.

Plaids create a warm, cozy, casual atmosphere. 

I don't know about you, but that's what I want in the fall and winter.

Since a lot of us are starting to plan out our Christmas and winter decor….I'll focus on that today.  


The mix of the more formal window with the stone floor and willow furniture really says welcome here. The plaid seat cushion looks so cozy. You could easily cover your porch cushions temporarily with plaid flannel sheets.


You may already have a paid throw or blanket. Use it as a table cover. It just makes this tablescape pop!



Maybe you prefer the look of neutrals. The plaid on the chair is timeless. You could use any color imaginable with it and it would look fabulous. Did you notice that amazing deer art?
This is my kitchen table last Christmas. Plaid  table runners and napkins are easy to find at Walmart, HomeGoods and TJMaxx and Amazon.

Love the idea of using your neutral linens and saving money by just adding a simple plaid ribbon to the silver. Source
Gone are the days of  thinking of plaids only used in cabins and equestrian themes. They can make an otherwise formal space cozy.

I'd love to hear how you use plaid. Do you plan to add a touch this holiday season?
Next week, we'll change gears. I'll be sharing plaid fashion ideas!
Did  you see my Orvis Knock Off Christmas Wall Hanging? You can find it HERE. I'll be using it on the porch with plaids this year.
Have a lovely weekend!!

  1. Love love love those pictures. I adore plaids and paisleys, and think autumn and winter are just especially perfect to pull them into any decor, formall or not. Polished silver just gleams brighter on a plaid cloth or runner. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks!! You sound just like me! I bought fabric late in the season as well. Thanks for the reminder. Now to find it!!

  2. I’m using my beloved plaid rimmed dinner plates by Gibson from my parents years ago with the little deer lunch plates from Better Homes on creamware larger dinner plates for my Christmas Tea this year. They look adorable together. Red plaid is so classically lovely especially at Christmastime.

I love hearing from you!
