Christmas Banner as Accents

Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, when I enjoy decorating every corner of my home.

I love adding details in home decor that make decorating for Christmas so much fun!

Simple Christmas banners add a festive look to a room, and I love using them at this time of the year.

I found the chalkboard banner at our local craft store, and I simply added bundles of faux red berries and fresh pine sprigs tied in red gingham ribbon.

I hung the banner in front of the chest to spruce up this corner of our dining room

Couple of years back, I used evergreen sprigs and dried orange slices for a Christmas garland for my kitchen windows.

Sitting on top of the chest is a decorated wooden terrarium.

Remember the mason jar luminaries from last year? Well, I love them so much that I am using them again this year. The terrarium houses three of the mason jar luminaries and lights up this corner of the room beautifully.


Love the ambiance and warmth created by these glass luminaries:

I love how the white terrarium looks dressed for Christmas:
