Woodland Christmas Inspiration

Our exterior Christmas lights are up, the porch planters are filled with natural greenery and I hope to begin decorating our indoor trees this weekend. I'm sharing a few inspiration photos that I hope you enjoy.

I love decorating for Christmas and this year I am focusing even more on a natural woodland Canadiana style Christmas theme. We already have lots of country and natural elements, and I hope to only buy a few new things. We have more than one tree, so each will have a bit of a different focus.

Simple greenery can add the perfect touch to Christmas decor. (I came so close to scoring a china cabinet just like this one on kijiji for $175, but someone else called half an hour before me. I'm still searching!)
I'd like to find a way to get one of our trees into a bucket like this, though our bucket is green.

 I hope to take photos of the porch planters this week if the sun cooperates. It is quite cool here today (-4C or about 24F) and I'm looking forward to snuggling up with a hot cup of tea and some old magazines. Wishing you a great day! Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends.

  5. I love the woodland look as well. I find we have so much sentimental stuff at Christmas (did I just say 'stuff' - oops) that I can't do a theme. I love to look at a woodland theme though. I'm looking forward to seeing what your trees are like.
