There's no need to opt for over the top decorations. Skip the Santa statues and life size snowmen. Instead, choose simple items that add to the decor of your home. For example, some easy floral arrangements and a few ornaments on the table makes an elegant holiday centerpiece.

Even in a winter wonderland, there's plenty of color to be found outside. Bring some of that color indoors to serve as Christmas decor. Berry covered branches, tall twigs wrapped in twinkle lights and placed in vases, and garlands of greenery bring in all the traditional colors. Add some festive fabrics like plaid tablecloths and red satin ribbons to finish the look.
