I love decorating for the Holidays, but over the years I have gotten tired of the excess. Pulling things out of storage in the garage and then having to put it all back in again afterward, storing for almost an entire year again.
Over the last few years I have simplified my holiday decor and have enjoyed using natural elements to decorate with. Pumpkins and tree clippings for fall, natural trees, garlands and wreaths for Christmas feel so inviting and festive without all the plastic. I also reuse candlesticks and other decorative elements as well.
You can find so many different and unique pumpkins to decorate your mantle, dining table and front porch. It’s an opportunity to support local farms and businesses too. Dried eucalyptus stems can be saved and reused in other projects, arrangements and to top gifts.
