Twelve Days of Christmas Design Tips

Project Decor board by Joan Waddell
Creating this board for my design shop at Project Decor  got me in the spirit.
It also sparked an idea...
I know I love reading tips for making Christmas decorating beautiful...and simple.
(I'm especially fond of  "the simple" part)
so I thought I'd share some of my own tried-and-true favorites for you to try.
Here's to a richly adorned, but carefree Holiday Season! 

 ON THE FIRST DAY OF CHRISTMAS...

White Flower Farm Ziva Paperwhites
Keep it "REAL" whenever possible.  
I always try to plan ahead and force Paperwhites to bloom in early December 
so we can enjoy them throughout the season. Their aroma is heavenly.
The container is the key to making it a showy display.
I love to use Chinese porcelain bowls to plant them in.
(Super tip #1 - scour antique markets for vintage oriental bowls that are less than perfect. 
Not only are they charming with all their flaws, the price is usually charming as well!) 
Cluster several on a coffee table at different heights to add drama.
More Christmas design tips ahead.  So keep in touch.

"Embrace the joys of good design!"
