Merry, err, Happy Winter, everyone!
My wreath, from a local greenhouse, is made from birch bark, and I like that it is very simple, and also that i can save it for next year. I added the ribbon just to make it a little more festive. For you know, winter. ;)
I made the planters (see that post here) that sit on our front porch, and filling them seasonally has been fun. Once the fall grasses finally died out, I was looking for something nice and green, but still simple, to fill them.
In my opinion, good arrangements have a mixture of color and texture. There was a pretty simple formula for this one: a few different greens (pine branches and the furry thing in the corner I can't remember the name of, and the osage orange), a pop of color (berries), one more layer of texture/fill with the pine cones, and one shiny/metallic thing (the ornaments).
I also filled our window boxes with some greens, artificial berries, and a candle:
Which looked pretty neat when an ice storm came through:
A few more photos, just for fun:
