Simple Ways to Decorate for the Holidays Using Natural Objects
I really like dressing up my home with all sorts of decorations during the holidays. Why? Simply because I just love how holiday decor makes my home feel so warm and inviting! I’ve realized that using natural objects as decorations really makes a difference.
On that note, I’ve got some simple ideas on how to incorporate these natural objects into your own decor.
- Winter flowers and plants as table centerpieces: Take advantage of the beautiful winter flowers and plants by using them in a table centerpiece. Artfully arrange the flowers and plants in a nice big vase or bowl. For this, you can use traditional poinsettia flowers and just add natural accents like ivy and mistletoe.
- Wreaths and garlands as mantelpiece displays: Who can resist the classic combination of a wreath and garland on display? Place these on top of a mantelpiece and create an instant hit by adding some festive Christmas lights and natural accents like holly berries and pine cones.
- Seasonal produce as bookshelf and cabinet decorations: Liven up your bookshelves and cabinets with a burst of color, courtesy of seasonal produce like apples and cranberries. Combine them in different colors, like using both red and green apples at the same time (not only will these be lovely to look at, but you can even eat them afterward!). To add holiday nostalgia, incorporate charming orange and clove pomanders in elegant silver bowls.
Natural objects bring the outdoors into any home, along with all their lovely charms like vibrant colors and aromatic scents. For more ideas, you can read my earlier post on creative ways to use pinecones and other natural objects. Happy decorating!by
