Adding touches of nature throughout one's home while decorating for the festive season is a must. Aside from the obvious Christmas tree or two there are numerous ways to decorate with foliage in a big way or with little touches. This not only balances the various colors of the season and the abundance of sparkle and glitter that is to be expected at this time of year,
but nature also does have a calming effect during what usually is a hectic season for most.
For the outside of our homes, the presence of nature in different forms creates a great first impression and can be a reflection of the indoors. It certainly adds wonderful curb appeal!
Planters are an obvious choice to complement whatever you choose to use and they work throughout the year .
They certainly make a bold statement for the outdoors.
From Christmas trees in any room...
...and mini potted plants..
..and wreaths of all sizes...
...with or without a mantle.
Combining some element of nature in your decor this season welcomes all to your home and creates a warm environment within for friends and family, no matter what climate one might live in.
Garlands for a fabulous curved banister is visually stunning in any foyer..
...or over a mantle...
...or framing a perfect view through a picturesque window in the dining room. I love that there is a swag to this garland!
Something I have tried myself in the past. A garland wrapped around the dining room chandelier.
The little touches...place settings with a touch of green helps balance the sparkle all around and makes for an inviting table....
..and white is the perfect winter color. It can enhance and add a delicate touch to all that glass and silverware.
A touch of foliage here-and-there.
It can be simple. Just a hint..how perfect.
And one can be so creative. How pretty is this!
No matter what your style...
or color preference...
..elements of nature come in different forms and colors and decorating with some during the festive season - indoors and out - provides an essential, happy balance.
