DECORATING WITH URNS FOR THE HOLIDAYS

Tis the Season for Decorating! Your interiors are being dressed for Christmas -  Layers of warmth and some evergreen added to the bedroom, a wreath and candles at the mantle in the family room, and the tree is adorned with ornaments and lights in your front window to share your joy of Christmas! But why stop there? Take it outside! I don't mean you have to convert the exterior of your home to look like Broadway or the Grizwalds - but simply adding a little holiday cheer at the entry is a wonderful way to welcome family & friends for holiday get togethers. A simple way to address the entry - large or small - is with urns. For the holidays, urns can be filled with an arrangement of fresh cut greens, branches, pinecones, oversized ornaments, or even a small spruce. The arrangement can be lit, or stand on its own - whether under a covered entry or urns can even look magical covered in some fresh fallen snow. Urns can also be used in a inside entry on a pedestal, a console or buffet. Here are some ideas to get you inspired...


Welcome guests with an entry as grand as the holiday season!



Use an urn to plant paper-whites...


En lieu of lamps, use a pair of urns on a buffet...


In a small entry, use a single urn with vintage ornaments & antlers, set on a pedestal in front of a mirror...


 Add some swag to your entry draping cypress garland flanked with white urns & greens...


A bountiful urns can be created with a mix of greens, natural pinecones and shine...


Lead the way with small urns & greens in a stairway...


A mix of winter greens are hardy enough to withstand a light dusting of snow outside...


A small rusty urn can add can add charm with a small tree and pinecones inside...

Large or small, urns can handle the holidays. Urns can be as heavy as cement or iron, great for outdoors, as porous as pottery for the porch, or as light as fiberglass for a pedestal indoors. Urns can be found at your local home decor store...


 I found this fiberglass urn at Garden Ridge...


 Urns can also be found at your local Garden Center...

 Do you use urns - inside or out - to decorate with for the holidays?
Urns are a good decor investment piece - not only for the holidays, but this classic vessel can be used through most every season.


An urn with birch branches can take you through the holidays and winter...

  2. Yes, I use my garden containers to fill with greenery and a bit of bling for the Holidays. I will remove the bling after the New Year and leave the greens in for winter interest. You've got some beautiful pictures in the post, I love greens out front at this time of year.
    I saw you sharing at the Christmas Extravaganza Party, again!
