Holiday Decorating Ideas

I love the holiday season, but I prefer to keep decorations subtle and traditional. In fact, my parents once assembled a sparkly, hot pink Christmas tree in my room just to laugh at my look of disapproval.

Over the last few weeks I’ve been admiring the gorgeous holiday decorating ideas circulating the web, and I finally purchased a little something that sticks to my “keep it simple” guidelines to spruce up my space.

I bought this beautiful bay leaf and chilies wreath from McFadden Farm. I love it because it’s pretty and functional! Once the holiday season has wrapped up and the leaves have dried, I can use both the bay leaves and the chilies to season comforting winter meals.

What’s your holiday decorating style? Do you have a favorite or sentimental decoration that makes an appearance each year?
