Fill Your Containers with Christmas Ornaments

Christmas ball ornaments don’t just look fabulous on a tree, they pretty much look amazing no matter where you put them.

When decorating the Christmas tree, leave some extra ornaments to fill a dough bowl, bucket, basket, or vintage wooden crate for the perfect, yet simple, holiday vignette.

Another festive addition to this vignette would be spreading some twinkle lights around the ornaments and greenery.

A Bowl of Seasonal Fruit and Greenery Brings in Natural Elements

This, my friends, is one of the simplest winter decor ideas.

  • Put seasonal fruit in a bowl, or really, in anything you want.
  • Add a sprig or two of greenery from your backyard.

It doesn’t matter what fruit you choose to use. Pomegranates, oranges, apples, and pears will all look beautiful.

Another thing to remember is that you don’t have to use fresh fruit and greenery. You can use artificial or faux greenery and fruit options as well and your vignette will look just as lovely. There are some seriously realistic options to pick from these days.

Add Vintage Books to Your Vignette for Height

Vintage packages are such a simple way to add some holiday cheer to a vignette.

They add interest and are great for adding height to your Christmas decor.

Mix in Greenery, Pinecones, or Berries Into a Container

Adding a simple centerpiece to a kitchen table or creating a festive touch to a shelf or a coffee table can be so simple. Yet it’s a great way to bring in the winter holidays to your favorite space.

Branches from pine trees, eucalyptus, and rosemary are all a perfect choice when adding greenery to any container.

I personally don’t have a lot of red berries in my yard, so I tend to use faux berries. They add a much-needed pop of color to any holiday vignette.

Vintage Santa mugs are a festive way to add greenery and berries to your Christmas kitchen.
