I wrote for an article for Calgary's Child about decorating outside of the winter season but as you write so far in advance I thought I would do an instagram series as well as add in a few more pictures and thoughts to decorating for the winter season.
First I though I would show our hutch styled three ways for winter. These are likely items you might own or can easily get your hands on. Clear glass vases are gorgeous in a group. They are also easy to find and affordable, dollar stores, grocery stores - everyone has them. Try a group of five, eight, or thirteen. I also opted to put all my plants together. Not only does it make watering easy but I think plants really do enjoy the company of each other. It also brings life into your space when everything else seems dormant. In the end I settled on a combination of pine cones and plants.
Plus, there are still plenty of new plastic and stuffed pink and purple toys running rampant through our home that I just omit in pictures. Christmas was good to us but I'm convinced more than ever to get our playrooom in order to help with toy storage. I've been plugging away at it and next week you will get the full reveal!
