I love Christmas. I love the colors, music, decadent foods and decorating. The holiday season allows me to use as much creativity as I choose to create the atmosphere I want to achieve in my home. Sometimes I keep it simple with just my decorated Christmas tree and a few decorations around my home and sometimes I go all out. Most of the time, I'm an eclectic mix of home-spun country and Martha Stewart-esque elegance. (I know, right?) Ah well. I didn't say I was going to make any appearances on the Nate Berkus show. :-)
I wanted to share a couple photos of my holiday decor...... simple, easy and cheery. I hope the pictures come out ok. I had to use my cell phone camera because I lost my camera cable to transfer higher quality photos.
In the Northeast, evergreens abound. In many areas, these types of arrangements with greens and berries can only be ordered through LL Bean or other mail order companies. I am fortunate, not only to have LL Bean in my state, but that I can go into my back yard or nearby and get these materials and create my own centerpieces and arrangements. This one graces my bathroom counter and imparts a wonderful evergreen scent to the room.
How do you decorate where you live?
