The holiday season is upon us, and the decorations are making their way out of the basement and back into their proper seasonal spot! I am moving at a snail’s pace this year, so I started with the extra ball ornaments and will hopefully gain more momentum from there. I think it’s fun to use ornaments in different places around your home, instead of just the tree. There are so many places to show a little holiday cheer- why not spread the love in different nooks and spaces in your home! In my living room, I have placed some ornaments in glass containers, candle holders and even on books!
The holiday touches in this vignette are minimal but add a subtle, festive flair to the room! The pillow basket has the addition of a gold throw, because I love to use some silver and gold in my holiday decor. The tray on the dresser is adorned with my Country Living holiday coffee table book and glittery and shiny ornaments placed inside a glass container. I even added a few on the book for a touch of whimsy!
Another spot in our living room also has some new holiday cheer!
This secretary desk also has been adorned with more ball ornaments and festive decor! My nutcracker, covered in silver and gold sits on a coffe table book, with a single glitter ornament tucked inside a glass candle holder. My candlestick lamp shade has been replaced with a festive red and green plaid. And a larger glass container sits on the secretary desk, filled with more ornaments! A watercolor print from Laura Trevey also joins the holiday decor, because of its beautiful blend of colors, including red and green!
Much more holiday decorating to come… stay tuned!
