James Connelly of Connelly Interiors, Whitefish Bay recommends using lush evergreens to create a visual and scent-ual welcome. Usher in guests with a door wreath and big, green-filled urns. Inside, double up on the evergreen garland for the staircase.
How to do it for less: It is pruning season after all! Lamm's Nursery is also holding classes for swag, wreath and planter decorating at around $25 per class.
What's hot in holiday decor?
No matter what your aesthetic style, candles and natural elements can fit the bill.
- Encircle votives on a white table cloth under a vase of white branches send a clean modern look
- Use topiaries, tapered candles and pinecones to provide an ageless traditional look.
- Going for the earthy aesthetic used the same materials-just more of them! Fill baskets of acorns and pinecones, add votives to hollowed out gourds, and fill vases with pine boughs and red berry stems.
