Nature-inspired Holiday Decorating Ideas
Choose nature as your inspiration for holiday decor this year for a unique and special holiday theme. Bring home some of the finest and freshest that nature has to offer to make your home feel warm and festive without any artificial decor.
To start with, choose green as the base color of your holiday decorating scheme and add little accents in red. A natural green theme can be easily achieved with wreaths and swags. Garlands and wreaths made of magnolia leaves are great for nature-themed decor. Plants like poinsettias and cyclamen create a warm, welcoming feel and are readily available during the holiday season.
Decorate your nature themed tree using items from nature and hand-crafted ornaments. A real pine Christmas tree will fill your home with a familiar fresh scent that’ll remind you of Christmas from your childhood. Birds’ nests, twig ornaments, garlands made of pine cones, berries and acorns all add a rustic flair to your tree.
Decorate your mantel with hurricane lamps filled with seasonal finds. Pine cones, leaves, dried berries and nuts are all great vase fillers and have a breathtaking impact on the overall feel of your home. Instead of artificial lights, light up your holiday mantel with lots of candles of different sizes.
Gathered winterberry branches are a great way to add pops of red to your green decor. The branches can be tied in bundles to your banisters or used as part of your holiday table centerpiece. Seasonal fruits like apples, persimmon and huckleberries also make for great festive centerpieces.
A berry wreath surrounded by candles makes a great festive centerpiece for you holiday dinner table. Dried orange slices are also a great addition to your natural table decor. Napkin rings made of cinnamon sticks and a little twine will add that special nature-inspired finishing touch to your table décor.
