holiday styling

Another fun project to share with you. I styled the Christmas decor for the counseling center at my church, and the details came together so well. Take a look!

The tree needs a bit of explanation. I saw this blessing tree from Jeanne Winters, and loved the idea. The waiting room environment was a perfect candidate to house the tree.

Basically there are paper tag ornaments with blessings like "peace, laughter, grace, etc" for visitors to either take or just read a few. The goal is to give lots of warm fuzzies, and a few smiles.

So there you have it! Using cheap items like old books, fabric, and pinecones, all the decor was around $60 (excluding the tree). Perhaps it is obvious that I had free rein, as everything looks real similar to my holiday home decor. *Apparently my personal taste trumps all when there are no boundaries.*

I love it, it feels so "real". Folding the book pages is a great idea, and the wreath is also beautiful! Great job!

December 10, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMonica

Gorgeous! I love the neutrals and unexpected twists on the traditional decor. Totally stealing your idea for a blessing tree. Imitation is the highest form of flattery. :) And praytell - how did you make that wreath of paper cones? I'm intrigued!

December 10, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLillian

Wow what a big impact for such a low cost! I love re-using recycled materials - especially books! Thanks for sharing your unique, innovative, and eco-friendly holiday decor!

December 11, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLaura

awesome! i love all of it! i love the garland on the fireplace a lot and was thinking i could do the same on mine and hang stockings with clothes pins. did you just not fabric around a rope? (sorry if you answered this somewhere i am always on limited time at the computer with my little ones :) )

December 14, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMikelle Smith

I absolutely LOVE this idea!!!! So sweet and simple. Love it! Love it!

December 15, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBritney

The blessing tree is such a great idea, it all looks beautiful and calming too.

December 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTasha T

Do you have a tutorial on folding the pages in the book. I love it!

December 16, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle

Hopping over from Marta writes. Beautiful and simple. Stunning decor. I love the blessing tree.
Merry Christmas.

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJen

Your blog is beautiful!! I love the way you decorate. So lovely, peaceful, & stylish. I like that you have many pictures you take on your blog! What a neat idea to have cards on a Christmas tree for people to see and read.
