Holiday Home Decor with Shutterfly

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas around the Fynes house! First up on the decorating list was the dining room.  I had the pleasure of creating my holiday home decor with Shutterfly this year. Shutterfly has so many products for every season, and since I wanted to get some custom pieces this year it was the perfect fit for my holiday home decor.


I’m so happy with my dining room decor this holiday season. I totally fell in love with the custom plaid monogram plates. I ordered one for each of us in our family and then two solid plaid plates for when we have company.

Plaid is so classic for the holidays, I feel like you can make it work with anything. Plus Shutterfly has 6 different color options to choose from to suit everyones taste in plaid… plus loads of other options if plaid isn’t your bag.

To bring everything together in the dining space I printed a 36 x 24″ family portrait canvas print. I love that I can see it from the kitchen and all the colors tie so well together. It really sets the tone for this family holiday space.

I kept the table quite basic, I love to be able to see the people on the other side of the table and lets be honest, my children don’t do fussy very well! You can see the centrepiece I created last year here.

The large sideboard at the end of the dining room tells a much more playful story than the table. Isn’t that the most jolly Santa you’ve ever seen?!

I had found an old tattered Christmas card at my aunts house. With a little help from photoshop I brought him back to life, added a bit of text and uploaded my own design to Shutterfly. I wish I could credit the artist of this wonderful Santa, but there were no markings on the card, and searching google didn’t bring me any info. I’ll certainly treasure this piece of art for years to come.

I just love his button nose, bushy eyebrows and rosy cheeks. It is exactly what I imagine Santa looks like.

To coordinate with the Vintage Santa I also created in photoshop elements this ‘Have a Holly Jolly Christmas’ framed printed canvas. I must note I don’t have much in the way of graphic design skills so I’m really impressed with how these prints turned out!

To complete my Christmas collection of art prints I watercolored this vintage truck (read a tutorial how I did that here, and grab the free Vintage Truck Silhouette file here). I uploaded the scanned watercolored image into my Shutterfly album and created a custom framed canvas print.

The framed canvas prints are perfect because you can either stand or hang them.

This whole collection makes my heart warm. Paired with my ribbon plant pot trees, and funnel trees, it really makes a sweet Christmas vignette.

I love incorporating  a few vintage pieces I’ve picked up over the years into my christmas decor.

His old pine tree I used at the end of the vignette has wide spread branches that can handle large ornaments. Rather than getting a few regular ornaments I chose a mini mounted gallery and hung them from the spaced branches. When the holidays are over, I can hang the gallery up and enjoy it year around.  They mounted prints were perfect for filling the holes.

I love seeing their sweet smiles from my small home office.

To tie the little dining room sofa into the flow of the decor, I created a throw pillow with a snowy photo I had from a winter past and added text in the same font I used on the canvas. Such a cozy place to snuggle up and read an old book.

To add an extra personal touch to our family gifts I printed a set of personalized luggage tags with our family photo, the year, and a little message. It adds an extra treat to your gifts, and they are perfect for hanging on the tree too!

  1. Your Christmas decor always blows me away. It’s like the most perfect, cozy Christmas that you see on TV or in magazines and try to emulate in your own home. I love everything about this space, especially the simple, rustic tablescape and your buffet with all of the holiday prints and decor. Looks like the perfect place to spend the holidays 🙂

    1. You’re so sweet Katie! I love decorating for the holidays, Its the one time of year I actually sit back to take it all in! Thanks for following along

  2. So beautiful! I love your sideboard! Definitely gave me some inspiration for decorating this year.

  4. Beautiful displays!! Defintely very festive. I would love to know where you found that Santa picture with the rosy cheeks? I love it. Same with the “Have a holly jolly Christmas” print… did you make this?

    1. I did make the holly jolly print, and the santa came from a vintage card I found. The card was tattered and hand no markings, I love him!!

      1. I love the Santa picture you’ve made. Is there anyway you’ll be able to share this print? I was looking all over, but nothing matches what I believe how Santa looks like compare to this one in the picture. I’m really appreciated if you can!!

        1. Tammy Harris says:

          I love this Santa too. Would you be able to share. My kids will just love him.

  5. Hi Virginia. I love plaid and vintage, so you’ve won me! I love that the plaid you featured isn’t the traditional red too. I have a grey blue plaid that I use with mirrored placemats, and silver candelabra and mercury glass balls, and it looks divine. A little imagination goes a long way. Great post. I wonder whether you’d like to come and share at my Five Star Frou-Frou linkup? We’d love to host you. Love, Mimi xxx

    1. That sounds lovely Mimi, I love mercury glass balls too, the perfect combination of classic and magical!

  6. Loving the vintage vibe! And I’m also a huge Shutterfly fan! Thanks for sharing.

  7. So cute! My favorites are the Santa picture and Mr. and Mrs. Claus on the park bench!

  9. I was so happy to see this on Throwback Thursday! What a bunch of wonderful ideas. The plates are darling!

  10. Any chance you would be willing to share the file you made for the Santa print? I LOVE it! I’m not as Photoshop knowledgeable though. 🙂

  11. Oh, your dining looks so beautiful. I love it. So many cool and fun ideas. This is the first time I know about Shutterfly. They have many beautiful things for decorating the house. I’ll visit the shop and buy something.
