Goodbye To Tired Holiday Decor!

As the holidays approach I usually write about my dislike of boring decorating ideas. I never understand why so many of us can't let go of "Grandma's decorating" ideas when it comes to Christmas! As it turns out, the folks at Found feel the same way and they (unlike me) decided to do something about it. Tuesday evening they are opening their doors and sharing lots of fresh and stylish decorating ideas.

Great tip: Use fresh greenery! It has a wonderful aroma and looks amazing in any home.
When it comes down to it, what bothers me about most holiday decorating is its garishness. You know, most of us would never consider living with tacky, shiny objects on a regular basis; but we don't give it a second thought at Christmas time. Why? Subtlety, can be so much more beautiful. Also, subtle doesn't have to mean boring. It can be very unique and charming.

Don't you love this color!!


Okay, I admit I can be a bit of a Scrooge. Fortunately, even Found's lumps of coal come in a charming package. Ha, Ha!
Here's some more info. Maybe I'll see some of you there:)

Love the fresh greenery! I borrow from my grandmother's cedar and magnolia trees every year.

I tossed out some tired looking holiday decor last year. I mean really. These are beautiful images with great fresh ideas!

What an adorable idea! I love the coal with the "naughty" tags and those oranges and piles of wood look so pretty. It's amazing how bunching something together in an unusual setting can be the perfect decor.

I think you make a good point about decorating with consistency. If you don't do garish everyday, then follow suit during the holidays. Lovely store. cheers, -susan
