If you are like me and want to live with less stuff, start decorating for the holidays with all natural materials. I love the smell of pine needles, evergreen and cinnamon. When decorating with these materials (plus many more items found in nature), my home is filled with a wonderful scent that represents the holiday season. What I love most about decorating with natural garland, wreaths, topiaries, fresh fruit and cinnamon, I can dispose of them when I am done and don’t have to store them for the next year.
Start the season off with a holiday decorating party. Buy the supplies and invite your friends over to help make garland and wreaths. Of course, fill them up on spiked eggnog and yummy holiday sweets and they won’t want to leave! If you aren’t so crafty or want to devote the time to this, contact your local florist to create these masterpieces and they will decorate for you.
