Guest Post: At Home in Arkansas... Tips for Holiday Styling

I love the Holidays and I love to decorate for them, 
but finding the time is always a challenge.

Here are some tips to help you make your home look festive in no time.


Mix in seasonal with everyday 
You don't have to put everything away to make room for your holiday decorations.
Make it look more natural and effortless 
by integrating floral and greenery in with your mantle or bookshelves.

Here I simply added glass ornaments and greenery
 to this arrangement my client already had displayed.

Use fresh when you can


I realize that is not always an option, but if it is then why not take advantage of nature.

I love the simplicity of using clippings from trees as decor. 
It's not only economical, it adds the amazing aroma of pine to your home.
Plus less to put away when it's time to take everything down.

Just add them to your every day vases or bowls with or without ornaments and garland.

I also love Cranberries... 
They are an inexpensive and natural way to add some color to your holiday decor.
Place cranberries in vases or other glass containers,
add candles and TADA you have an instant centerpiece!


Use Rosemary to make a simple wreath.
Hang it in your kitchen and use the sprigs when cooking or just enjoy the smell.
It's also a great hostess gift!

Be proactive for next year and

When storing your decor find a designated place, then color code or label the containers.
I have tons of holiday decorations and I don't use them all every year. 
I keep all of mine in an area in the attic separate from the rest of our stuff.
That way I can quickly scan what I want to get down each year 
and what I want to wait and use another season.

Here is a great link to check out for organizing for next year.

It's about that time so put on some music and start decorating!
