I did it again. I opted for my seven-foot, pre-lit faux tree rather than a beautiful, freshly cut evergreen. It just wasn't meant to be this year.
But I did incorporate as much nature as possible, keeping with the humble feel of my house. With a palette of green, white and ivory in mind, I went full force into decking the halls in time for my annual cookie swap. Here are a few centerpieces I whipped up minutes before the party.
These rustic terracotta pots from Post and Beam were the perfect base for my white pillar candles. I found some moss in a ravine behind the house, which completed the natural look.
I bought these two glass jars on a whim, and they're perfect as centerpieces when wrapped in burlap. I chose hydrangeas for their texture, which juxtaposes nicely with the rough burlap.
