Christmas Decorating Theme: Natural Wonderland

Happy Friday! I'm so happy the weekend is here :) Today's Christmas theme is centered around "Natural Wonderland", which is perfect for those of you who enjoy simple, elegant and organic decor during the holidays. This look is inspired by nature with fresh greens, natural woods and textured fabrics like burlap and linen. I haven't tried this theme out myself, but am really drawn to the simplicity and beauty of it! How do you plan on decorating your home / tree this year? ***Have a wonderful weekend! Be sure to visit again next week to get the scoop from several guest bloggers on their Top 5 Christmas Gift Picks. xoxo - Julie

I love this idea! Fill buckets, pots or ceramic pitchers with small trees or plants and spell out the message of your choice with decorative paper letters. [Image from The Inspired Room]
