This week Hannah and I are showcasing our Christmas decorating styles. I’ve had my fresh-cut Canaan fir up since the Saturday after Thanksgiving (we get down to business). Here’s a few snap shots of my natural decor, but check out the video showing the best view–at night.
See how my tree looks at night….all lit up.
I tend to keep my trinkets out all year round, but accent with holiday specific pieces. For instance, at the front door my chicken feeder sits upon a terra-cotta container, but within that container I’ve stuffed holiday lights.
For my buffet, it’s a collage of natural elements–pinecones, Eastern Red cedars snipped from the ditches, and mini-Indian corn displayed under a cloche.
Previously when we visited Meghan Blum at The Mansion I expressed my concern for the biege monstrosity in my living room. One tidbit I learned from Meghan was to weave a throw in and under the cushions of a couch. I think this plaid blanket not only looks festive, but apparently it’s quite comfortable.
A simple addition to my chicken crate/coffee table–pinecones displayed in a cloche are nestled amongst shredded paper within a galvanized hog feeder (several farm references there).
Fresh greens and red-twigged dogwood stems add a lil flair to my kitchen table.
So there you have it….the Ketelsen abode is in full Chrstimas mode and ready to welcome the season. How’s your decorating coming along? I’m curious to your style–did you go non-traditional with teal and aqua? Or do you relish in the more classical colors–red and silver. Show us your style on Facebook and tune in tomorrow when Hannah shows us how she does Christmas.
