Winter Decorating Tips from nature
A favorite way to decorate for any season is with foraged items from nature.
Winter offers an abundance of evergreens and pinecones. Sticks or twigs are also easily found.
Adding candles instantly warms up any space. Sophie and her snowy background continues to grace my table for several weeks during winter.
No need to put away every Christmas item because some are winter décor as well as Christmas! As an example, a few snowmen continue to hang around for the winter months.
In addition, a few of the snowy trees and wreaths continue to keep the Farmhouse warm and cozy. You can also keep paper snowflakes out during the winter. See how to make them here.
Cozy Blanket Throws & Pillows
Next, using lots of throw blankets & pillows not only make the rooms look cozy, but also are practical for this time of year. I rarely watch TV without pulling a blanket over my legs. Be sure to have plenty within reach at all times.

Warm Wood Tones for Winter
Woods and Whites have long been a favorite for any time of the year, however winter is a perfect time to add more texture. Adding bread boards, old rolling pins, or wooden trays is an inexpensive ways to add warmth to your home this winter.
Adding white dishes to a natural wood riser creates a warm centerpiece for this Winter Table.
Stacks and stacks of white dishes on shelves add a cozy feel.
adding Textured decor
A wooden barrel, tray, or tool box, looks great when filled with an old book collection. Add a hurricane lantern filled with a candle and wrapped in greenery to create a warm vignette.
Porch Decor for Winter
More foraged pinecones and a few faux red birds keep the porch festive during Winter.
Forced stems or Bulbs
This year I plan to start bringing stems and bulbs inside early so that we can enjoy new blooms before Spring. Here are some forced forsythia stems from last Winter. Paperwhite Bulbs are a favorite of mine.
