If you are busy with shopping, visiting and other events this season but still want to pull off a bit of sparkle and panache with your Christmas décor here are 5 easy indoor WOW elements to have fun with.

Christmas Terrariums and Miniature Gardening

Think Small - Miniature Gardens

Miniature gardens and terrariums are hot, hot, hot! They are also fascinating to look at and incredibly easy to make. You can create a miniature world out of succulents, ferns and moss and teeny tiny twigs, airplants and driftwood or you can even take a page out of our fearless leader Rebecca’s Pinterest design book and make a simple, stylish and seriously awesome bulb terrarium with paperwhites, gravel, moss and a mason jar!

Natural Décor for Christmas

Natural Is In

Natural is in this year! Decorate your mantel with evergreen boughs, pinecones, bark and berries or add some wooden ornaments and pinecones to your tree. Who would have ever thought that barnwood and burlap would be a design trend? You can even fill a decorative wooden bowl with pinecones. Now this is a design idea that is just my cup of herbal tea and will go brilliantly with my woolly socks and sandals. Seriously though, bringing a bit of nature inside is an elegantly simple and cozy decorating idea.

Mixed Metals

Mixed Metals - Silver and Gold

If the natural look isn’t for you mixed metals can glitz up your loft, dining table, mantel or anywhere you want to create some eye candy! The hot trend in sparkle this year is mixing silver, gold and bronze…together!!! I KNOW right?!!!

Christmas Birds

Birds

Everything from natural looking nests to full on beaded glittery doves do woolen red Cardinals. Birds and birdhouses are also hot this year. One of our most popular trees at the Christmas fair was the tall birdhouse tree. I am going to add some natural looking felted birds to my twigs, greens and pinecones for a 1-2 punch of style! KABAM!!

Pinterest Florals

Pinterest Florals

Pinterest has created a resurgence in design and is an incredible source of inspiration. Many of the design ideas you'll see help bring a little bit of sunshine (aka flowers) into your house. This is a timeless tradition. Paperwhites, Amaryllis, Christmas Cactus in bloom all remind us Spring is just around the corner. With Paperwhites and Hyacinth there is also a heavenly fragrance. They are also fun, economical and….dare I say…educational! Succulents are incredibly hot right now too. Did you know you could use succulents and airplants as christmas tree ornaments?

Painted Poinsettias

Painted Poinsettias

Everybody loves using the classic red, white or pink poinsettias in their festive decorating endeavors. However, if you are looking for something a little different, how about blue, purple or sparkling ones? A little bit of floral paint, some glitter and a whole lot of love and you have the makings of something extraordinary.
