Deck the halls with all that’s horsey
You don’t need to do much to make your home space feel festive – a bright throw rug and the right pillow on the couch can change the vibe in seconds.
A horse-shaped wreath is another simple way to bring a little merry magic into your home. This one, made with artificial greenery and led lights, is available on Etsy. If you don’t fancy hanging it on your door, it’ll make a wonderful table centrepiece too.
To hang your horse shaped wreath, we suggest this horseshoe hanger made of brass.
Achieving an equestrian tablescape is best achieved with some simple essentials that you can build on. You can enjoy these elements as part of your Christmas traditions for years to come – starting your own unique table tradition.
