Organic elements and Christmas go together naturally.

And one of my very favorite places to see natural Christmas decorations is Williamsburg.

Williamsburg looks it's most beautiful this time of year. Decked out in Yuletide finery and brimming with good cheer, it is a true study of decorating with naturals.





Greens, fruit, magnolia leaves, dried florals and pods of all varieties are twisted and turned into beautiful wreaths, swags and corners.









Simple designs with vibrant colors make a big show on white backgrounds.





An unusual mix of organics gives a big visual punch. Dried artichokes, red peppers and other greenery make this natural display a winner.










Unexpected elements mixed with greens catch our imaginations and curiosity.

Card sharks must frequent this establishment. Cards folded and fanned adorn this clever and creative wreath. Dried apples formed into rosettes and cotton fluff add more detail.



A cobbler's shop uses salt dough figures of a cat and some mischievous mice to tell a whimsical story on this wreath. A leather shoe that has been commandeered by a little mouse sits on the windowsill to continue the story.

Natural leather signs and balls of cotton twine add to the organic feel.







The mice have gotten into the house... so cute!



This wreath outside historic Chownings Tavern is adorned with small silver beer mugs, wheat tops and hops. It cleverly gives a nod to the libations inside.




Horseshoes, hunt horns and stirrups!

Look at the creative way this equestrian lover combines their love of horses with Christmas decorating. There is so much personality in this natural design! Make sure you take one of the apples to your favorite horse.






Whether humble or majestic, decorating with naturals is a festive and traditional way to decorate for Christmas.





Let the Merry season begin...


I am participating in SEASONAL SUNDAYS with my good friend The Tablescaper. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas over there!
