Unique and stylish Christmas décor by appointment and online
Karin Glenning of Reindeer and Castle has always loved Christmas. "My mother was a fabulous cook, and we started making Christmas cookies and truffles weeks before the big day; the house always smelled wonderful all through December. I have very fond memories of that time."
Many years later Karin lived in New York, and had the good fortune to enjoy Christmas American-style. "It is truly magnificent. This is where I fell in love with the Christmas tree skirt; a beautiful piece of Christmas finery that surrounds the base of the tree to catch the pine needles. So of course my collection includes a variety of lovely tree skirts not commonly found in Australia."
From New York Christmas to beach house chic, Reindeer & Castle has your decor needs covered.
The Reindeer & Castle range includes various tabletop items such as glassware, plates, table runners, napkins, napkin rings, tea towels and other beautiful gift items that can just as easily be enjoyed at Christmas as all year round.
The showroom is situated in an Edwardian House in South Yarra, and the gorgeous Karin operates by appointment, as well as offering small champagne events. Shoppers have the opportunity to enjoy an intimate experience in comfort with a glass of bubbly in their hand. Reindeer & Castle offers bespoke table table runners, and tries to satisfy personal requests for items as best they can. In addition, Karin can put together a whole look, from ornaments to table settings.
Gorgeous homewares and Christmas decor items are imported in small quantities and sold by appointment, with some of the items available online. Reindeer & Castle also has soaps, candles, and small finery made in Australia via three local businesses.
Reindeer & Castle has secured an exclusive agreement with a fabulous US purveyor of ribbons. "The ribbons are divine; there is nothing else like it in Australia." Ribbons for gift wrapping and also for using in table runners, as decorative accents on stockings, as napkin rings, and to wrap around your dining chairs or your front door instead of a wreath. Even chalkboard ribbon that can be wiped off and used again and again. Karin loves to wrap this around napkins, which then double as place cards.
