Simple Holiday Decorating Ideas

Good morning, friends!  With the holidays right around the corner, I'm joining an incredibly-talented group of bloggers for a Deck The Halls Blog Hop.  I'm so grateful to be included in this diverse group.  We hope to inspire you as you begin your holiday decorating!

My daughter's birthday is the first week of December.  I decided to decorate her room to kick off the season.

I like to keep our holiday decor simple.  I don't have a lot of extra space to store things, so I use natural materials that can be tossed or planted in my yard.

Fresh greenery is the perfect holiday accent.  I love the smell!  Be sure to stop by Home Depot for free tree clippings(they're in a labeled bin by the Christmas trees).

I cut greenery from my yard and mixed in a few tree clippings, to create a free arrangement that will last much longer than flowers.
My mom loved wearing holiday brooches.  After she passed away they were given to me.  I placed one on display from her collection.

A past holiday card from my sister and these adorable wood trees are from Etsy.

A petite tree in an olive bucket for a simple holiday touch.

I decorated the tree with fairy lights and gold-glittered stars.

 I created a little spot in her room to enjoy hot chocolate and a classic book.


Our sweet puppy Autumn posing for pictures!  

My daughter and I have seen the Nutcracker together every since she was 5.  It's our favorite tradition.  


I switched out a couple of her botanical prints with holiday cards from Rifle Paper Co.

The white ruffled pillow covers are from Home Decorators; years ago on clearance.

The gray cover is a recent Pottery Barn purchase.

Thank you so much following along.  Below is the entire list of participating bloggers. Be sure to click through the links to see some amazing inspiration.
