Tis the season for decorating. We all get busy decorating the inside of our homes for the holiday season, but don't neglect the outside. You'll want a nicely decorated entrance to welcome family and friends for all your holiday gatherings. A family sled (or you can purchase one at Patina General) and a bucket of mixed greens with red dogwood and hydrangeas. I sometimes hang a pair of ice skates from the sled, they just haven't made it down from the attic yet. A pair of skis formed into an "X" would make a fun backdrop to the spruce tips, or a few birch branches tied with burlap, greens and berries. Take a walk around your own yard and see what nature has to offer in the winter. Sedum tops, rose hips, almost any foliage adds great texture to your outdoor entrance. Enjoy the season!
