Simple Cottage Christmas Decorations Part 3


It’s easy to get overwhelmed when thinking about all that goes into the winter holidays. Take the load off of the Christmas decor stress with these quick and simple ideas to start decorating for the winter holidays.

SILVER ACCESSORIES AND MERCURY GLASS: Bring out the vintage silver trays, bowls, trophy cups, and silverware for the holidays. Mercury glass bowls, candle holders, and ornaments give your holiday vignettes a classic and timeless feel.


BOTTLE BRUSH TREES MAKE A BIG STATEMENT: Add bottle brush trees  to Christmas villages or add just one to a small container or Santa mug.


HANG YOUR STOCKINGS WITH CARE: Dress up your Christmas stockings with ribbon, greenery, and even bells. Berries and dried oranges are another great addition to your stockings.


BRING THE OUTDOORS INSIDE WITH NATURAL ELEMENTS: Creating a simple centerpiece of seasonal greenery and flowers for the kitchen table is a perfect choice when it comes to bringing natural elements from the outdoors inside.


USE SEASONAL FRUIT AND NUTS AS KITCHEN DÉCOR: Displaying pomegranates, dried oranges, and nuts in a bowl is one of the easiest ways to decorate your home for the holidays.


ORNAMENTS AS CHRISTMAS DÉCOR: Take extra Christmas ornaments that are left from the tree trimming and place them in wooden dough bowls and vintage wood crates. Hang them from chandeliers and add to wrapped gifts.


BRIGHTEN UP  WITH TWINKLE LIGHTS: Spreading fairy lights around your home will give your space an ambiance full of warmth and whimsy during this Christmas holiday season.
