Indoor wreathes and garlands. Thankfully, getting the interior set to welcome the holidays doesn’t require layers of decor. A cheerful berry wreath and a few red accessories are all it takes to make this kitchen feel festive.
3. List your favorite and least favorite things about the holidays. What is most meaningful and fulfilling to you? Which activities would you be really sorry to miss out on? By making sure that the most important things are on your schedule and given top priority, and letting go of things that you don't really care for, you can tailor your holidays to suit you. I had an idea that I would design my own family photo holiday cards, but I realized I would rather spend my time sipping cocoa by the tree, so I'm skipping it. No one else will know what they're missing!
In our farmhouse kitchen, I chose red as an accent color to add a special holiday touch to our everyday look. For the island centerpiece, I put pieces of freshly cut pine branches around a vintage enamel pail filled with collected pinecones. Above the hood hangs a red holly wreath tied with a handmade burlap ribbon. Tip: To create a burlap ribbon for your own natural wreath, simply cut a narrow piece of burlap, which you can purchase at your local crafts store, and sew it on the sides to prevent fraying.
