I always find it difficult to decorate for Winter……
I’m over the holiday look………not ready for Valentines yet!
So, I looked around outside while I was driving to try to find some inspiration. Remember, I live in South Texas so there’s not much blooming or alive in the winter. The grass goes dormant and looks dead, there are no blooms to be found and everything just looks tired.
Then it dawned on me the cedar trees are still green and I happen to have one in my front yard!! My “aha” moment!!
So, in trying to keep things simple and cost down to a bare minimum (two of my secret resolutions for this year!), I stepped outside and cut a few stems and tucked them in here and there!
The kitchen is where the foliage found its home……….
I simply placed a large stem in my jug bottle and called it good!
The dark green color of the cedar along with the boxwood wreath compliments each other nicely!
Next, I placed a few sprigs in a vase with some fake snow and a stem of silver balls.
My white pitcher got the same treatment, with an extra sprig of frosted greenery……
….along with my cow creamer!
I love the dark green with white and silver! Winter in my book!!!
I even made two swags for the front doors to keep things lively!
I’ll be adding bows today and completing my winter porch next week!
So remember, when your stumped for ideas, look around at nature and see what’s alive and colorful! Your decorations may just be in your front yard!!
Until next time!
