A Little French, Jewels, and Snowflakes  

in the 

Christmas Guest Bath 

If you are looking for ways to add a little Christmas sparkle to a guest bath, take a peek at our guest bath decorated for Christmas company this year. Adding some crystal jewels and glitter are only the beginning ways for a guest bath to welcome guests during the most festive season of the year. 


Earlier this year the small guest half-bath was updated with fresh white paint, a new toilet, new tile flooring, and a new French-style arched mirror... that is parfait (perfect) for Christmas greenery. 

Preserved eucalyptus, crystal jewel stems, small glittery snowflakes, and a white bejeweled ribbon dress the mirror and bathroom for the holidays. 

Everyday soap and towel were replaced by holiday versions.  

A silver Christmas tree on the hand towel has bejeweled snowflakes falling around it. 

A framed page from a French alphabet children's book displays the charming French story of Neige (snow) for the letter N. 

The country pine cabinet is a vanity for the blue sink. 

A real French château, Ussè, was the inspiration for Charles Perrault's fairy tale, Sleeping Beauty. A print of Ussè reflects in the arch top mirror. 

Fresh mixed evergreens, pine, fir, and boxwood, surround two or three white daisies from the grocery store floral section. The water is changed every two or three days to keep the small Christmas floral arrangement fresh. 

 A faux white amaryllis only needs dusting to stay fresh. 

Icy jewel crystals and sequins in the white ribbon also only require occasional dusting to remain fresh for the entire holiday season. 

The crystals sparkle against the dark green preserved eucalyptus branches. 


May your Christmas be as merry and bright 

as our Christmas guest bath.
