Christmas Greens


This little Christmas Vignette on our piano turned out to be an eclectic mix of metals, colors and textures.  Staying with a green color palette, I mixed in a lot of different tones to achieve this sort of rustic natural feel with touches of sparkle that gives off a warm cozy vibe.

I gathered pieces from around the house, some that I have used for Christmas decor in other areas of our home to create this subtle Christmas display.Recently Updated5

I used my moss trees and place them on random mismatched candle sticks and for more texture and dimension added in some pine sprigs at the bottom of each tree. I filled one of my favorite containers with my fall acorns and more pine.  A Christmas star and also a vintage style Santa for a pop of color & whimsy.

Now, when I started this I had a round clock hanging above, but it just was too cold.  I thought I’d try this wreath from my Etsy Shop and it was just what it needed…I am now working on making myself one similar because it is just too perfect in this spot! {eh, the laundry doesn’t need folding, right? ;)}

So play around with your decorations in different places!  I think a lot of times we get used to having our decor exactly where they have always been or where you initially purchased an item for.  But there are no rules on changing it up and sometimes I think you’ll find you like things better a different way.

Oh, and I casually draped lights throughout to give a warm Christmas glow at night…I love it.

  9. I know it's May, but these are great ideas. I feel like some, if not most could be kept for most of the year. To decorate on shrubs throughout the year, venture to christmasfarms.com. They have various Christmas greens, but the creative mind can make the garlands a year round decoration.
