I look to nature for decorating this holiday season. Most can be obtained easily right outside your door. Pine cones of all shapes and sizes. Different conifers. Acorns! Just make sure you somehow bake or heat them up to remove the little creatures that live in them. Another resource is your local grocery store. Scented pine cones and cinnamon sticks add warm holiday smells and are easy decor. Put them on a bowl on the dining table or in a tall glass vase.

I also love using fruit and vegetables to decorate. A large bowl of oranges with cloves, or try green apples for a different color! Add some pine bows and you have yourself a centerpiece.

I just love bringing nature indoors, without the little creatures!
