As the wind gusts and the temperature drops, stay out of the cold while decorating your home for the holiday season. Christmas Trees and poinsettias may be the most common winter décor, but there are other locally grown options to explore.
Garland and decorating greens are great for holiday displays around your home. They can be wrapped around posts, the staircase railing, doors, on the Christmas tree, or around the fireplace. Intermix twinkling lights for the full effect.
Bring the outdoors inside with natural décor such as dogwood, mixed greens, or spruce tips. Give your décor an effortless look by filling decorative baskets with pinecones, ornaments, pine branches, and white lights. Garland, birch bark, and pinecones look great combined in a vase for a winter-themed centerpiece. Add locally made soy or beeswax candles for a cozy feeling in any room.
Many Christmas tree farms offer gift shops for their customers. Not only is this a great place to buy gifts for your friends and family, but they may also supply holiday-related signs, crafts, or winter scenes/villages for your home.
Wreaths are welcoming when placed on your front door or above the fireplace mantle. Wreaths are durable and will last through harsh winter weather.
