*I have some very simple winter decorating ideas for you today*
Well, the gift I gave to myself when I decorated the house for Christmas is really paying off! This was by far the easiest tear-down I’ve ever had as basically I only had to remove the big trees and the garland on the staircase. I seriously feel like I’m winning at this post-Christmas getting the house back to normal stuff!
The best part is that I didn’t have to do a bunch of redecorating. My brain feels so fried lately as we make the adjustment back to our regularly scheduled programming that having to try to decorate a mantel for winter would have most likely meant that said mantel would have been bare until spring.
BUT, since I went into December intentionally decorating with less of a ‘Christmas’ mindset and more of a ‘winter’ mindset, I didn’t have to even give it a second thought!
The hot cocoa station is still in demand so it will remain here on the kitchen buffet for a little while longer too. I may even throw caution to the wind and let Santa hang out there the whole time too.
And other than giving it a quick dusting, the dining room buffet won’t be touched again until the first spring buds begin peeking through.
The big Christmas tree has been removed from the family room but this little tiny one is doing a pretty good job of filling the void.
I decided that I still needed some twinkling lights to lift my spirits on these cold, dreary days so this tree in my entry will remain. It gives me such pleasure to turn it on each morning and my kids have informed me that they think it should just always stay there.
And a glittery little cottage on top of my vintage kitchen scale is still right at home in this season.
So, how do you transition your home from Christmas to winter? I’d love to hear some of YOUR winter decorating ideas!
And, as always, thank you so much for meeting me here at the fence,
