This post by ModFruGal yesterday made me long for holiday decorations in our apartment. Her simple, beautiful little “tree” can fit anywhere and make a big impact. Maybe a couple vases with dressed branches in each, grouped together on the credenza or bookshelf, of even on top of the fridge?
I haven’t done any decorating for the holiday season since we lived in California, where we bought a crappy little tree that caused a big old mess. I have too many things in my apartment. Too many “accents.” Too many decorative objects, plain old kitschy stuff. Granted I love these items and I appreciate waking up in the morning and looking at the pretty tableaus scattered throughout the house but right now I’m thinking of putting everything up for the season and adding some holiday cheer to the space.
This is another lovely take on branches from nicoletter, a beautiful German blog penned by a graphic designer.
How simple, how pretty. Easy to throw together and it would fit right in with the vintage feel of our kitchen. I surmise I’d have to remove the candy canes every morning before leaving for work lest the puppy get a hold of them. Via jutta on Flickr.
The bowl with ornaments, the JOY sign. All elements I can add to my branches and mini tree. Via simplygrove on Flickr.
Now I’m in the spirit. Are you decorating this year? Did you get a tree yet?
