inspiration :: Williamsburg Christmas
Friday, November 26, 2010 by {darlene}

Williamsburg, VA has its own decorating influence for the Christmas season, based on the natural greenery and fruits that were available during Colonial times.

I love this style of decorating at Christmastime. It recalls simpler days, and classic restraint. It is au natural. And it includes the senses….
dried fruits.
pine boughs.
This home displays only greenery and pinecone wreaths. Understated beauty. How beautiful is that fence?

And the creativity options are endless. This display, highlighting an historic transom, is just breathtaking. It would look beautiful on any type of home.
Nothing says Colonial Christmas like an apple swag.

I am already thinking about Christmas decorating.
A small platter, displayed on my dining room table, was a touch of Williamsburg Christmas in my home last year, as well as dried fruits and natural greenery. I also had a pineapple on the mantel, which was lovely amidst greenery. So easy, and the smell is wonderful.
be sure to let me know if you are brave enough to try the apple swag!
