Touch of Green

A moss covered reindeer takes center stage in this neutral and calming cream and brown dining room created by The Graphics Fairy. Boxwood topiaries and a boxwood wreath pop against the dark walls.

Little Red Wagon

Mini evergreen trees are tucked into a vintage red wagon and an antique sled is topped with a wreath in this fun and playful decor for a brick stoop from Unskinny Boppy.

Making It Personal

A white monogram wreath pops against this black front door.  Black lanterns filled with red ornaments bring a crisp modern, yet still traditional, touch to this front porch from The Yellow Cape Cod.

Nothing Says Southern Like Magnolia Leaves

Window boxes are a great place to tuck fresh greenery during the winter, like these magnolia leaves under a crisp black and white awning in a design created by Thistlewood Farms.

A Traditional Front Porch

Monogram Evergreen Wreath

This evergreen monogram is a fun take on the traditional wreath for the front door, via View Along the Way.

Thrill in the Air

Outdoor decorating isn't just for the front porch. This gorgeous outdoor fireplace mantel created by French Country Cottage  is topped with fresh boughs of evergreen, fruit and artichokes.

Repurposed Decor

SAS Interiors used an old electrical spool to create a unique side table when topped with a lantern and Mason jars filled with sprigs of green. The table is a great place to set a cup of hot cocoa while watching the kids play in the snow.

Finesse Small Spaces

Don't forget the tucked away space in your home when it comes to holiday decorating, suggests Craftberry Bush.  This mudroom brings the outdoors in with a bucket full of birch logs, evergreen and pinecones.  Warm mittens and boots wait for those headed outside for some sledding!

Birch Log Candy Cane

Unskinny Boppy suggests wrapping birch logs in red ribbon for a natural take on the tried and true candy cane.

Driftwood Reindeer

A whimsical coastal touch from Sand and Sisal, this driftwood reindeer stands guard over a beautiful coastal tree covered in starfish and sea glass-inspired ornaments.

Vintage Silver

We love this great way to use family heirlooms. Pull out vintage silver pieces, like this creamer, and tuck fresh evergreen into them to create mini holiday arrangements. 

Front and Centerpiece

Finding Home offers this beautiful, and easy way to create a holiday centerpiece, using glass containers, fresh cranberries and sprigs of pine and boxwood.

Woodland Christmas Tree

These snowy white owls look quite at home tucked into this woodland themed Christmas tree. Wrap your tree in grapevine garland to complete this nature inspired theme, suggests Four Generations One Roof.

Oh Deer!

Twigs topped with vintage Christmas ornaments become a set of "antlers" for this fun deer head vase from blogger Jennifer Rizzo.

Twig Advent Tree

An advent tree from Jeanne Oliver Designs is created with twigs and branches from the yard to crete a unique, and beautiful, spin on the traditional advent calendar. 

Natural One

Blogger Jennifer Rizzo nestles evergreen, birch candles and a sweet little bird into a vintage wooden bowl for a nature inspired centerpiece.

See the Sea

We thought this coastal powder room would be the perfect place to display seashell Christmas trees topped with gilded starfish.

Country Chic

Stockings don't always have to be hung on the mantel.  Why not a vintage ladder topped with a fresh evergreen wreath, says French Country Cottage.

Culinary Conifers

A pair of tiny evergreen trees seem quite at home nestled in this vintage crate and adorned with miniature pottery, from Rusty Hinge.
