Along with my need for neutral this year, I have also included simple to the mix.  Especially for the holiday decor.  While the White Tree is all done up, the rest of the decor in the house is simple greenery.  Just maybe in some unexpected locations.  I love the idea of garland, & I have it draped on both fireplaces (I’ll show that next week!) but the kitchen felt as though it needed a little something.  I had thought about a wreath, but I didn’t want to take down the art or cover it up for that matter!  So instead I grabbed one of those bunches of greenery that is supposed to adorn your mailbox and added it to the corner of the artwork instead.  Clever, right?!

I love adding touches of fresh greenery since we do have a fake tree.  And since the tree is white and green this year, the addition of the natural green elements just work really well.  I have also added little spare branches here and there to give the instant feel of Christmas.  Adding it to this tray, on my coffee table, even a little vase in the bathroom.  It is an easy and effective way to decorate.
