Christmas tree stands


Pinterest




If you put up a Christmas tree this year,
will you stand your tree 
in something special?



Midwest Living


A basket?
A bucket?
A wooden box
or a crate?

Tell me
what is the most creative
container you
have ever seen
a tree placed in?

Will you be hanging a wreath
on your door this season?

What kind of wreath
will it be?

Maybe a pine one,
or a berry-covered one,
or  a leafy green one?

Decking Your Halls


Veranda


What's new 
in Christmas decor?



Not much!

Have been scouring the magazines,
blogs, stores, and design centers
for any inspiration I can feast my eyes upon
but there really is not really anything
 "new" 
out there.

Elle Decor

But let me tell you...
these oldies
are
GOODIES!

Williamsburg Wreath



I love the smell of fresh evergreens in the winter!
Red berries are wonderful and any fresh fruits 
 added to the mix are even better.




Southern Living



Pine cones, twigs, 
and green leafy branches,
 all add great texture 
and interest 
to your holiday evergreen dressings.




The Magnolia Company




Add personality 
and your own style 
with material elements 
like ribbons, ornaments,
and strands of beads 
or glittery garlands.






Pinterest



Some prefer the more natural decor
while others like to glitz it up 
and really add pizzazz and magic 
to their displays.

As for me,
I like them all!
Little bit of natural in one area,
and then a lot of sparkles and lights
in another spot.

It's all up to you.
So tell me, how will you
be decking your halls this year?

Birch Decor



Birchwood logs 
are so pretty in the winter.
Their papery white bark 
is gorgeous in contrast to green pines.











It was fun finding
photos for this post
of birch used in
holiday decor.

Lots of great images.





Will you be using any in your
holiday groupings?
