Winter Transitions

Good morning to you!  I hope that if you celebrated Christmas over the weekend it was a joyous one.

Taking down Christmas decorations within the next couple of weeks is sort of inevitable for all of us.  The tree will come down, and the super festive ornaments will be packed away, and our houses will feel a little empty without all of the greenery and twinkly lights.  I typically do look forward to this, to be honest…  There’s something about a fresh start for the New Year that just makes me feel really content.  But for those of you who want some ideas for transitioning your Christmas decorations to simple wintry decorations, I’ve got some pretty pictures for us to look at for inspiration today.  🙂

There really is only one rule to remember — Is it found in nature?  Then use it!

Fake snow, rustic logs, berry sprigs, pine greenery…  Maybe you already have some centerpieces with those ingredients around your home, and if your vignettes have any ornaments sprinkled about, just take those away and you’re left with something perfectly wintry.

Boxwood is great for winter because it is simple but still gives a nod to the season.  I love these sweet little topiaries with a little bit of ribbon for a festive touch.

Don’t shy away from pine cones when transitioning your decor.  They add awesome texture.  Magnolia leaves, too!  Those are something that you don’t see in everyday winter decor but aren’t they lovely?

Aren’t these icy candle holders so pretty?  I love the texture of the branches and leaves.  This would be a really fun DIY project.

This is a perfect wintry centerpiece that my mom-in-law created.  Fake snow, a snowball candle in the center, pine, pine cones, some sprigs, and of course an antler!  All things that you would find in nature.  🙂

 I’ve got to remember to do this next year.
