With Christmas just around the corner, this is the perfect weekend to start decking
the halls of your home or living space with the season’s festive colors and themed
décor. Among the many home-furnishing shops in the city, Pottery Barn is one of my
favorite stores with their extensive selection of furniture, accessories and Christmas
decorations.

Recently, Pottery Barn celebrated Rice de Jesus’ blog, Heart2Heart Online’s 10 th
anniversary at its flagship store located at Central Square. The celebration was
themed as “A Christmas Home Filled with Love” which also showcased the shop’s
Holiday collection.

To help guests visualize the possible furniture layout and Christmas setting, Rica
had a styling activity that saw different interpretations from Junjun Ablaza, Sylvia
Lopez, Chef Roselyn Tiangco-Siapno, Nisekrew, and Happy2Help. It was interesting
to see the inspirations to be interpreted in different vignettes. The table setting by
Junjun was a favorite of mine with his snow and ice themed dining setup complete
with miniature Christmas trees and wooden reindeer décor.

Style icon Sylvia Lopez created a cozy living room setting with Christmas hues and
country style accents. Guests enjoyed viewing the other vignettes while bonding
over food, stories, and lots of laughter. They were given a handful of giveaways from
SaladStop!, Nars, Gap, L’Occitane, Beauty Bar, Marks & Spencer, Pinkberry, Rustan’s
Supermarket, and Herr’s.
