Keep Winter Decorating Simple

I don’t know about you, but when I put away all of my Christmas decor, it leaves my house feeling empty. This year, I tried to leave some of my “red and green” decor items out, as long as they didn’t scream Christmas. However, that only lasted about a week.

I decided to keep it simple by using a lot of the greeny I had already decorated with. In the above photo, I removed a wreath with a red ribbon and berries that hung from the screen and replaced a tin bucket with red print with a white crock. You can see how my home was decorated for Christmas in this Vintage Christmas Home Tour post.

This hutch in our dining room is one of my favorite pieces to decorate for the seasons. Green is a color I use often in my home, so it makes sense to use it in my winter decorating.

Warm Up Your Winter Decorating

It may be cold outside, but that does not mean it has to feel cold and bleak in your home. Warm up your winter decor using candles and baskets. Baskets add a layer of texture and warmth to your winter decorating. Take the garland from the mantel and fill a basket with it. Add some pine cones, done!

During Christmas, this old wooden bucket was filled with a Christmas tree. Changing it up for winter was as easy as packing up the tree, adding my favorite candle and some cedar sprigs that fell off of an old garland I had lying around!

This candle arrangement could be made with fresh greens. If you know me at all, you know that would be a HUGE fire hazard. The greens would be so dry, they would probably catch fire!

I have a 10′ farmhouse dining table in the dining room and I love creating seasonal arrangements in this ginormous dough bowl. Seriously, I could probably sit in this thing it’s so big! Filling it doesn’t have to be difficult. In the above photo, I filled it with a couple of 6′ cedar garlands, more pinecones, and this beautiful candle from Antique Candle Co.
