Monkey Around this Holiday Season!

Posted by


I love adding some whimsy to the Holidays.  In my daughter’s playroom we love to monkey around, so these sock monkeys were the perfect addition to her Christmas tree.

 How fun to just nestle a tree in amongst our regular furnishings!

And who doesn’t love a package wrapped in Tiffany Blue? Makes you think it holds something really special, eh?

Monograms are especially big in Southern traditions but I love making them a little unique with a fun color palette.

5 Little Monkey’s is one of my daughter’s favorite rhymes, so what fun to have 5 of these happy critters falling off her tree!

Here’s to a colorful and happy Holiday season for you and yours! And take the time to monkey around a bit this time of year. It’s makes it all the more memorable for your family.

    this took my breath away! THAT TREE, the colors, giftwrap, monogram…..everything and i am not one that gravitates towards bright colors…..amazing
    plus you are quite the photographer, what clarity. just bought an slr camera, but now another learning curve.

  11. Tobi says:

    Thank you all very, very much!!!! I thought this tree would be a hit but so happy to hear your comments.

    Debra, thank you for your vote of confidence but I am not a great photographer so these photos were taken by a photographer that I love to work with, Rett Peek. He is fantastic! I will pass your compliments on to him.

    Merry Christmas all!!!xoxoxo

  13. Michele says:

    I adore the tree AND the room!! PLEASE show more pictures of that absolutely FAB playroom- grown up and whimsical at the same time.

  14. monkeys are sooooo palm beach.
    i wonder how many homes on the island have monkey trees?
    if they had a monkey xmas tree,
    it would never be as fabulous as yours!

    your colors are stupendous!!!

  15. Karen says:

    What fun for Ellison that she gets this lovely playroom to have fun in! The colors are just amazing and so are the monkeys! Love it!!

  23. […] my previous opinion on Honeysuckle (check out the walls and trim below).  Anyway, I die for Tobi Fairley’s White Christmas Tree in her daughter’s playroom, and its all of its surroundings.  Serious design perfection. […]

  24. Nikki says:

    Wow, your tree and decorations exemplify “Merry”! And I appreciate that you are repurposing children’s toys (a class no less!) to bring that festivity to life. Well done!
