How To Decorate For The Holidays With Greenery

One of the most beautiful and cheapest ways of decorating a house for the Holidays is with greenery.  A garland here, a wreath there, and your home becomes Holiday perfect in no time. What I like about doing my own decorations with greens is that it gives my house a personal touch while keeping it elegant. Greenery is tasteful, just like nature, in case you were wondering.

This week I am participating in a “Winter Eclectic Home Tour” with another 25 bloggers. Each week day, five of us show the Internet world how we decorate our homes for the Holidays (Jess from Domicile37 is organizing it. Thanks, Jess! Go to her site if you want to take a look at the beginning of the tour). To prepare for my reveal this Friday, I got inspiration from simple decorations that use pine, cedar, or eucalyptus to embellish a home.

There are so many ways you can use greenery to decorate a house! Let’s take a look at this images from around the web to get your DIY brain going. And don’t forget to come back to read this Friday’s post if you want to see how our small home looks during the Holidays. I am excited to share this with you.

    All of these examples are beyond gorgeous. When I was decorating for the holidays, I went out looking for real greenery and trimmings and I had no luck. I am a bit envious of those who have access to that right now. I think next time I am going to try clipping some greenery from my bushes…we will see how that goes. I guess this is what happens when you live somewhere where it is predominately hot.

      Oh no! haha. That is no good. Here, in LA, is pretty hot too but there are plenty of pines. Also, the flower market will always do.

    Very elegant! Wow! As for me, with this week’s snowstorm in Wpg, I’m plum tuckered out, but I’m still hoping we do some decorating around the house this weekend. Enjoy your weekend, too. 🙂

    Mila, these are all beautiful inspirations!! I love decorating with greens, too… Not only are they classy and festive, but they are free in most places! I little trek into the woods or collecting scraps from the local tree stand, and voila… Fresh greens for decorating!
