Decorating your home with evergreens could be just the scaled back vision you’re after this year.
This year I am working really hard at keeping Christmas simple and peaceful. One of the first things we did was to cut back on decorating, which got me thinking. What if I could only have one kind of Christmas decoration?
And if I had to choose one decoration for Christmas it would be evergreens. Bringing nature into the house is always a favorite of mine for any holiday. So, I wanted share some of the ways that I have been decorating with evergreens this year, concluding with a simple tutorial on how to add an evergreen garland to a banister.

But, before I get started, I want to say how pleased I am to be part of the “bHome for the Holidays” Christmas blog hop and if you scroll to the bottom of this post you will find a fabulous line up of other Christmas home tours.
My favorite place to add greenery is actually on top of my kitchen cabinets, it makes my kitchen feel like its right out of a storybook.

Then, of course, any shelves or decorative containers will benefits from incorporating evergreens.
And I love seeing a simple touch of green tucked behind a picture.

And, finally, the banister in all its glory.
Would someone tell my photobombing dog that laying half on the hearth and half off is really uncomfortable?
I searched high and low this year to find the perfect cable knit stockings and am happy to report that I have found them. They are lined with flannel and they feel like cashmere, which makes me wish I could use them for sleeping bags!
I found them at L.L. Bean. Sadly, the “natural” ones are currently sold out, the other three colors are super cute, though.
As for other decorating spots, we have also added evergreens to wreaths, decorative trays, chandeliers, and even the Christmas tree.
