Buffalo Check is back in style and a great addition when you are decorating for Christmas. It’s a simple look and the flannel that it is usually woven into is nice and warm for the winter months. We love seeing this classic come back and all of the different places people think to use buffalo check in their Christmas decor.
Buffalo Check dates back to the 1850’s. It is said that a designer put a twist on a Scottish twill plaid they call “Rob Roy.” The designer owned a herd of buffalo and so came the name buffalo check. The most popular buffalo check colors are red and black or black and white. Are you ready to jump in and see how many use this lumberjack pattern at Christmas?
Buffalo check can be brought into your Christmas decor in so many different rooms. On your tablescape, on your tree, on your couch or as a greeting at your front door. Let’s start at the front door of Toni’s and see how she welcomes her guests with buffalo check.
