A Natural Christmas

Whenever I run errands, I make good use of my driving time by strategizing my shopping game plan. I strategize the exact path I’m going to take within the store, which door to enter and exit, and how I can best avoid people. My shopping strategy means I spend a lot of time in garden centers and auto isles.

While walking through garden centers lately I’ve noticed beautiful Christmas garlands and wreaths. All this fresh Christmas greenery has kept me from hanging the artificial wreath and garland I have sitting in my garage. Although artificial Christmas wreaths, glittered garlands, and candy-colored ornaments are fun, I have decided there is nothing more beautiful than a Natural Christmas. So wanting to pay homage to the Christmas decorating of old, I’m heading out to buy fresh greenery for my front door this weekend.

I’m really excited about it! Do you love the Natural Christmas as much as I do, or should it take a backseat to the felt, glitter, and glam?

    Rosemary Watson - I’ve done a mix this year! I’ve been obsessing over fresh greenery & real winter flowers and I’ve made it work with the glitter and whimsical holiday decor that I will always love. This post is so inspiring!
