I hang a wreath, lean my old sled againt the wall, pop a couple of green trees in my planters, light a few snowy mason jar candles and call it a day! Then I can get onto more meaningful things – like a great cocktail and hanging with family and friends!
I am trying to simplify this year.
Between decorating, baking, shopping, wrapping … (I’m feeling sleepy), it’s hard to carve out quality relaxation time.
So the outside of my house has to be quick and simple – check it out.
This twiggy crystal covered wreath is like the one over my mantel but with a twist.
Fresh garland wraps around the columns.
The finial looks like a giant snowball! Snowy mason jar candles line the steps and sit in cast iron urns – they look beautiful at night.
The girls old ice skates with a few springs of greenery tucked inside.
My old sled as a kid – long before safety precautions!
An old metal basket filled with pine cones.
Here’s to a festive, stress free holiday season.
Come take a tour of my Christmas Open House!
