After the holiday rock decorating crisis I went through last year, I knew I wanted to keep things simple this year.   So I pretty much followed three guidelines::

1. Incorporate Natural Ingredients {less packing away after the season and they bring life to your home}

2. Winterize What I Already Have {instead of buying big Christmas statement pieces} –also, work with the colors currently in my home

3. Don’t Take My Decorating Too Seriously

Your future, January self will thank you for planting paper whites.

Poinsettias are one of the easiest way to Christmasize a room. I use them every year, even during my rock crisis last year so that says a lot. Take two poinsettias drop them in a basket and poof–it’s Christmas!  Plus, they are so user friendly for those of us opting out of red this year.
