Creating a Christmas Theme
I told myself I wasn’t going to post about Christmas until after Thanksgiving but I just can’t help myself. Christmas comes and goes so fast and what I enjoy most about Christmas is the weeks leading up to the big day. In fact, sometimes the big day is a little anticlimactic after all the frenzied planning. So maybe it will help to start planning a little earlier. And part of that planning involves choosing a theme for decorations. This year I’m leaning toward a more natural approach to Christmas with plenty of fresh greens. Here are some inspirational photos I scrounged up from around the web … (if you pin photos, please visit the original source before pinning!!)
I am loving all the wreaths in this post. Boxwoods are the best.
Great inspiration Jennifer! I am doing a very simple Christmas this year.Nothing over the top.I am also doing some things I have never done before excited to get started!
I am excited about decorating for Christmas. I love this time of year. Thanks for the great inspirational photos.
So lovely and inspiring! I don’t start decorating for Christmas until after the 25th of Nov, which is my b’day. That’s one rule I try to live by. I do have Christmas on my mind all year around lol ~Pernilla
You did a great job in decorating a Christmas theme on your place. I’m so jealous, you have such a beautiful home! Will decorate my Bonifacio Global City condo for rent this weekend.:)
Today my pins were Christmas naturals…it is my favorite. Only wish the greenery would stay fresh a little longer.
These steal my heart too!
Great inspiration pics Jennifer! I’ve already started my Christmas decorating. Enjoy your day, Gail
Beautiful. Love your theme. Just perfect for your home. thanks for sharing, liz
I love all your inspiration pictures, Jennifer! I have a few of them saved on my computer ~ pre Pinterest ~ for many years. I love the feel of all of them. I’m eager to get started myself, but after so many years of waiting until the Friday after Thanksgiving it is hard to change. I will be getting my stuff out of the attic before Thanksgiving though, so that is a head start for me!
Hi Jennifer, I love your inspiration photos too. Even though it’s early, I’m thinking of a natural theme too. I’ve bought some preserved boxwood topiaries and a wreath that I’ll be using for the first time this Christmas. I’m looking forward to seeing what you do with your natural theme!
I’m itching to get my boxes out too, must be blogging – I want to see what new and interesting ideas I have for all my old holiday junk.
I love these photos they are filled with so much inspiration. They are all so pretty and welcoming.
Thank you for all the inspiration..luv the boxwood wreaths. Have you seen the ones at Lowes?
I love simple wreaths hanging with ribbon. Several of your pictures have some great examples. Did I see a pineapple in there?? Have a great day. -Tonya

Love greetings, Katrin by 7ter Stock
I wish I had the budget to just go get new stuff and go more neutral. I will have to make due, I wish I had the energy to get creating something, even an idea list…I just seem to be in denial that Christmas is so close!
Simple yet elegant ! All so very lovely ! This year we are doing less decorating and changing from a big tree to a table one . Thanks for sharing some great ideas here ! Have a good day !
Great inspiration Jennifer. Yes, Christmas will be here before we know it.
Enjoyed the Christmas Inspiration. Lots of good ideas.
Great images! I love the living room with the flocked tree. Might break down and do that for the first time in my life. The boxwood wreath is so sweet!
What eye candy! The star wreath is striking!
