Vintage Ornaments & Natural Greenery for Christmas!

We just moved into a new house in Colorado, and I am absolutely in love. Wood floors, judges paneling, a winding's a far cry from the small and sterile apartment we lived in last year. I was SO excited to move just in time to decorate for Christmas, but I had such a hard time doing it!! There are so many spaces to put things, and somehow in moving I have misplaced most of my Christmas decorations.

I went to Whole Foods and bought some of their fresh cut greenery and made a really fun tablescape. I used my old bottles, thrifted vintage ornaments, tons of candles (you can never have too many candles, in my opinion) and I'm forcing Paperwhites atop votive holders and bottles as well! I love it, and I didn't have to spend a bunch of money on decorations!

Tiny wreaths made from boxwood and rosemary are my absolute favorite. They may stay up for a while. I hung music from old roll player pianos on either side of the window, and the rosemary wreaths look so perfect adorning them.

SO loving the new house, the new rooms to decorate, and the things I will be able to renovate! I will be posting some simple things you can do to improve rentals in the coming months, but for now I'll just enjoy the holiday. Merry Christmas!!
