Decking the Halls



Christmas will be here is a little over 2 weeks! I can't believe it....so much to do!







Every year I go through different phases from wanting to really "deck the halls" to barely wanting to dig out my ornaments for the tree.








This year I want to decorate my home, but I want a more natural feel to it. I put up a tree but so far only have lights on it...and I think I like it that way! I might add a few pinecones here and there though.






On the front on my house I hung wreaths with bright green bows on each of the windows and some pine garland around my front door. Simple yet festive.






I'm thinking I would also like to find a vintage sled or pair of skiis to lean up against my front door as well.
How do you decorate for the holidays?

  1. I feel the same way as you this year - torn between wanted to decorate, and also wanting to be low key. We are having a party tomorrow, so I am decorating a bit, but we are also going to be away for the holidays, so I don't want to go crazy since we won't even be here.

    Next year I have promised the kids that we will go all out since it will be our last year in our house (we will be moving in 2011).

  2. Hi Christine, Thanks for your lovely comment. I swore off the computer today and started to think a bit about decorating...forcing narcissus, a bowl of green pears. I used to do all garlands all up the staircase...oh the mess and work to remove it! Love the idea of a natural Xmas. My son (he's 17) couldn't wait for me to get with the program and strung colored lights all over his wood bed. Can't wait to see what you do, XO Trish

  8. Wow! Going green and natural is a wonderful thought and quite inspiring. But since aesthetics part is something which is most important, so while decorating our house with greens we need to put them in strategic places and in a nice manner so that it enhances the beauty of interior.
