Hi everyone, Mary Ann, Annie, and I are decided to do our own tour this year with a focus on nature and natural elements and we invited a few of our talented blogging friends to join us. I prefer a natural look to my Christmas Decor but use a base of faux for practical reasons. Let’s take a look at how I create nature-inspired Christmas Decor in my Home. Let’s start at my entry.
NATURE INSPIRED ENTRY
I don’t change my decor a lot from year to year. I might change the ribbon or vary some of the elements, but that is about it. have an old traveling trunk in my entry. For the holidays I added a tray from Homegoods that I filled with belsnickels that I have collected over the years. I added a white poinsettia in an old pot.
On the stairwell, I have a faux garland from Park Hill Collection to which I have added faux twigs, faux white berries, and wide brown and white ribbon.
On the wall are my vintage french matted vintage prints.
To the right of the door is a bench with a vintage shelf above. I added a simple fresh wreath from home depot, and a bowl of faux greens and sugar pine cones.
NATURE INSPIRED DINING ROOM
To the left when you walk in the door is my dining room. Here I used 1 1/2 brown and white gros-grain ribbon on the chandelier and added fresh olive and foraged juniper. The sconces on the wall are accented with fresh greens and the vintage wide ribbon.
I filled the dough bowl with foraged juniper, olive branches and faux pears. I set the table with my glenna plates from Anthro, and I added spongeware salad plates from Tory Burch’s new collection. The goblets are from Target, the seagrass chargers are from Pier 1 years ago. All items or similar are linked below.
The hemstitch napkins are from Pottery Barn. I tied them up with some fresh olive, juniper, and brown and white grosgrain ribbon. The place cards were made on Canva.
Across from the table is an old french window that we made into a mirror. It is decorated with a simple faux wreath (Park Hill Collection) to which I added a few twigs of olive, and a ribbon. A tabletop little ollie stands guard in front of the mirror. The document box was an inheritance from my in-laws.
At the end of the dining room is an American blanket chest with one of my favorite paintings by Pat Huber Fine Art It is accented by some faux and real greens in an antique Romanian pot and a couple more belsnickels from my collection. You can find retired ones on Ebay here I have listed similar below.
NATURE INSPIRED FAMILY ROOM
In the family room, I have a faux wreath from Park Hill Collection. I added faux pears, berries, and the same wide brown and white ribbon. I described how I did it last year here. I have the wreath mounted on a pair of old cabinet doors. Last year I used the salmon side, this year the mustard.
The mantle is covered with mixed faux greens, pears, and pinecones. On the coffee table, I filled a large Romanian redware bow with candles and faux greens.
The tree also from Park Hill Collection, I borrowed from my son and daughter-in-law. We threw our tree away last year. It had seen better days. It is filled with ornaments we have collected over the years.
The packages under the tree are wrapped with a mixture of polka dots, matte gold, stripe and white. I designed the gift tags on Canva.
They are tied with a mix of the 5″ ribbon, brown double-faced satin, and polka dot ribbons. All or similar are linked below. I made the
Our antique rocking horse is decked out with a simple wreath from home depot and ribbon.
