friday foto: natural christmas at home.

I tried something different this year. Instead of arranging the same old decorations in the same old locations and painting the house red and green, I took a cue from my Minted inspiration board and went a bit more rustic. Lots of greens, pine cones and hints of burlap and natural textures are making our home feel extra cozy this most wonderful time of year.
I also love recycling things like fabric. When you have yards and yards of it, it is so nice to put it to good use. A 1.5-ish inch strip of burlap made a great bow - that is holding its shape beautifully - on our fresh green wreath, sent straight to us from Oregon.

What's on your wreath this year?

Have a jolly weekend, by the way. We plan to really get in the spirit with the Manhattan Beach Christmas Fireworks on Sunday. Hope to see you out around town!

Love the natural touch of some burlap! We used some as our table decoration for a Christmas party last weekend. It looked fabulous and natural with pine branches and gilded pine cones in the candlelight!
