Holiday Decorating!

  DSCF0994Christmas is fast approaching, and the pressure is on!   Making your home festive can be MORE (AND SIMPLER!) than a Christmas tree!!

Bring Christmas into the dining room by using ribbon to decorate your table and chairs.  Relatively inexpensive, ribbon can be tied into bows on the backs of dining chairs.  Tie ribbon around candles (flameless would be best!), arrange in the center of the table, add some cut greens for that holiday smell, and weave more ribbon through, or add a few shiny Christmas balls for a simple and fabulous centerpiece!  A similar arrangement makes beautiful and simple mantle décor.

DSCF0976Quick, festive touches in the living or family room include swapping bright Christmas pillows for every day ones and adding glitter in the form of Mercury glass, candles, and candle holders in gold and silver.  If your style is more casual, try filling canning jars or a collection of glass vases with battery operated fairy lights and colored Christmas balls (or mini pine cones) to brighten your coffee table or mantle.  A simple basket or bowl of sparkly Christmas ornaments makes a great decoration for a living room table.

DSCF0972Don’t forget the front door! In addition to the wreath on the door, welcome guests with empty plant containers filled with Holiday greens!   Instant holiday décor!  Green arrangements can also be purchased ready-to-go with bows, cones & glitter, or custom designed for you!

Now, relax and enjoy the holidays!  Merry Christmas from Oakland Nurseries!
