The decorating is done ~ cards, shopping,wrapping and baking ~ still working on that! But I'd love to participate in the home tours going on all around blog land. I like to keep it mostly natural but I do change things up a little from year to year.
So welcome to my home...
|My standard front door basket filled with cut evergreens, berries and crystal stems.|
The porch - more fresh greens and white lights. I also have candles in all of the windows. Wish I could show you but I don't know how to take a good night pic.
Another favorite decorating piece of mine is this etagere filled with greens and oversized ornaments.
Have to have a little sparkle!
We have many different types of evergreens on our property - so it's this time that they all get a good trimming. Some types shed less than others.
But I just love how easy it is to make empty pots and planters look festive. This one could use some pinecones on top but I do love it just like that!
As you walk in the front door, here is my entry. More greenery with whites and silvers and a touch of red in my french script ribbon.
Are you spotting the bird theme here?
I really love these white ones with the birch feathers that I found this year.
Love the glow of the mercury glass.
You can easily make your mirrors festive with a little greenery and ribbon.
The urn is a simple arrangement to recreate - white painted sticks, greens and pine cones.
We are still painting our dining room furniture but I can show you a little corner of the room.
|This tree is wrapped in a coil of grapevine and baby's breath is tucked all around.|
|Love these crates and they also get some greens.|
The mantle in the family room is very simple this year. We will be working on that room next. Shhhh....don't tell my husband.
|Mason jars filled with snow (epsom salt), cranberries and battery lit candles. Too much greenery around there - I was worried about my candles catching fire.|
|I filled one of my rustic planters with greens (there is a mixture of artificial and real in there), white lights and sugar cones. They are huge! I also tucked in some sparkly caspia.|
|This vase receives some sticks and greens from the yard and tall berry stems.|
I set the table - just for you. A really festive, and inexpensive centerpiece you can create and eat! All using items from the market. Pomegranates and green apples with more greens and pine cones.
|More snow and cranberries in my new Matthew Mead Jelly Jars.|
|My grapevine wreaths with preserved cedar decorate my cookbook cupboard and the backs of the chairs.|
I hope you enjoyed my tour.
