Being a young newly married couple, there is not a lot of money in the budget for Christmas decor.
Every year I shop at The Doves Nest to get timeless pieces that I can use for years to come and build new looks around.
“I get my inspiration from nature and use these elements to fill in around basic decor that I use all year. I collect pieces that I love and that can easily be moved from room to room to create different looks year after year.”
Use greenery from your yard to accent your napkin rings. For my table setting I used our toasting goblets from our wedding and antique silverware my parents gave me as a wedding gift.
Don’t be afraid to pull out fine china, heirloom pieces and wedding decor to build new looks.
A Little DIY Never Hurt
I use a lot of my wedding décor year round, but the cedar cuts are especially useful during this time of year. To tie in more elements from nature I found a branch while on a walk through the park and hung ornaments from it to create a wall decoration for the season.
Pick your Favorite
You don’t have to spend a lot of money to get a timeless look. Choose your favorite color and build around it year after year. It never grows old because you are always adding to it and rearranging it.
