Welcome to the beautiful month of December! On the east coast, this time of year always brings a variety of weather from surprisingly warm temperatures to ice and snow. Regardless, I wanted to offer you some decorating tips to help you create lovely home décor through this holiday season.
If you are planning to have a holiday tree, there are a variety of different ideas for large trees, small trees, table top trees, anything you could imagine! If you are looking to purchase multiple trees, consider visiting Produce Junction which has various locations in PA and DE where you can pick up trees for as low as $35! For tree decorating ideas, go to one of the following links to be inspired: HGTV, Country Living, or House Beautiful.

I love the idea of creating a decorating theme that can easily be transformed into a “winter” theme. Since we are dealing with winter through February, it is good to keep the sparkle and shine of this season through the winter months. The best way to do that is to use a color that will sparkle! Choose from one of the metal tones, silver, gold, or bronze. Krylon offers high gloss metallic paints for wood, metal, glass, or plastic! You can usually find it at your local craft store or online. Create a winter wonderland look by integrating snowflakes, frosted glass and various lights. Use fairy lights that have timers and incorporate them anywhere to add light. To create your magical winter wonderland, combine elements from the outside using pine cones, branches, and other organic materials. Layer the sparkle of metal, with white, or a beautiful velvet or faux fur in pillows and a throw that will last you through the winter in comfort and beauty!
