Although I love the Christmas season, it can often turn into a cluttered and stressful time. Of course I love the decorations, but I believe they should be kept simple and uncluttered so that home is a reprieve from the outside hustle and bustle during this busy season. Keeping your decor simple allows for it to be a fun and festive time of decorating instead of a chore, and at the end of the season, you also won't have to dread putting so much away. Here are some ideas that are easy to pull off for the holidays as well as pretty affordable!
I'm a huge fan of the greenery at Christmas time from the trees, to the garlands, to the wreaths, and to pine sprigs in vases or jars. Greenery just makes a room feel alive and fresh, and I love the natural element it adds.
Use other natural elemements
Tall sprigs of berries in vases, poinsettias, pine cones, and tall, leggy branches wrapped in lights or with ornaments hanging from them. All of these are great natural decor that you can add to your home for the holidays, and they will all carry you past the Christmas season all the way through winter!
Candles, Christmas Lights, and Ornaments
Candles are a great way to add some festive cheer and cozy ambience and who doesn't love Christmas lights! I'm seriously thinking of stringing some above our bed like Anissa, from House Seven Blog, did in her daughter's room. I also love the dough bowl filled with ornaments The Dollar Tree as pretty ornaments that would easily and beautifully fill a bowl!
