Holiday Decorating Elements

Are you looking for a new element to add to your holiday decorating repertoire?  Here are some of our favorite elements.  We hope you try one of them this year!

White décor

If you have your base décor in a monochromatic pallet such as white, you can add in a different accent color each year (think emerald, crimson, gold or blue).  Or let it all stay white like a Winter Wonderland!

Natural & wood décor

We love layering in natural and wood elements to our décor to warm up a space.  We do this not only at Christmas but throughout the year!

Real & faux stem decor

Add wreaths, garland or stems throughout your home.  Some unexpected places are on the backs of chairs or stools and on your light fixtures!  Add touches of ornaments and velvet ribbon for elegance and sparkle.

Decorating with Cranberries

I love decorating with fresh elements.  Each year I seem to cut down on my Christmas decorating but I still want to have things that are cheerful for the season.

One of my favorite ways to decorate is with fresh cranberries. It is easy, there are so many options and cranberries are so inexpensive! I just picked up two bags for $1.98 each! And don’t worry, they will last throughout the season as long as your season doesn’t start in October. 🙂

Cranberries and candles are so pretty together. Have them floating in water or just laying on top of a large bowl of cranberries. Do a small piece for a guest bathroom when entertaining or use them in a large table centerpiece.

If you are a little crafty, pin or glue the cranberries to a Styrofoam tree and add a bow.

Add a little snow to your look with Epsom Salts, another inexpensive item, and a sprig of evergreen. So cute!

 

 

Put cranberries in a pretty shaped bowl or in a tray with candles. Add in fresh flowers for a special touch.
