Welcome to Christmas! I guess it’s full steam ahead from here on out. This year, I started the holiday decorating with our front door, thanks to my friends at Colonial Williamsburg.
The WILLIAMSBURG Brand creates products inspired by pieces and the history of colonial America. A great fit for our house but classic enough for any style. (If you want to see more Williamsburg inspiration, I posted pictures from my trip a couple of years ago here.) I chose the colonial magnolia collection, a blend of boxwood, magnolia, berries, pomegranates, artichokes and faux fruit that stays beautiful even as it dries over the weeks. We’re not doing a real tree this year, but having boxes of fresh greenery delivered to your door is a really good trade off.
For Winter, I changed out the topiaries in the planters for some small Japanese holly trees. I added a few dollar store apples to tie in the color from the garlands.
And, nothing says “welcome” like a pineapple doormat—also available from the WILLIAMSBURG collection.
Now onto the inside! If I don’t pull the tree down from the attic this week, the twins are going to do it themselves. . .
