Minimal Christmas and Winter decorating Ideas

December 23, 2017

Hi, friends this year I've gone for quite minimalist Christmas decorations using greenery, pinecones, baskets, and handmade treasures. We have a traditional Christmas tree but I kept everything else pared-back and fuss-free.

This year I wrapped presents in the simplest way by using white boxes, craft paper, and greenery.  I started by wrapping white cotton twine in a zig-zag pattern around the box, then I tucked a clipping of greenery between the twine.  Simple and pretty.

These gifts were wrapped using brown craft paper, ribbon and a personalized tag. You can purchase white gift boxes and kraft paper on Amazon 


I went with a limited color scheme of green, black and white and styled the console table in the entryway two different ways. In this picture, a metal tray filled with pinecones sits in the middle of the table and a vintage Christmas tree and a black vase filled with greenery flank the ends.


In this photograph, I replaced the Christmas tree and vase with two mini faux spruce trees that I can leave up after Christmas and throughout the winter.


I filled a large basket with greenery and placed it on the floor next to the entry bench. This is an incredibly easy way to decorate for Christmas and winter.  I can replace any leaves that shrivel up as they dry out.  In keeping with the understated aesthetic, I used one fluffy white pillow on the bench.






Our Christmas tree is simply decorated with vintage and handmade Christmas ornaments. 


If you haven't finished wrapping presents and decorating your home I hope you use some of my simple decorating ideas.


Merry Christmas sweet friends!
