How-To - Simple Projects

Fruit-inspired holiday decor

A trip to your local grocery store can yield inspiration for simple and natural holiday decorating.

With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, many of us don't have the time to shop around for holiday home decor ideas. Yet, we all want our home to look its best at this time of year. You'll be surprised what beautiful fresh ideas await you at your grocery store to help decorate your home like I did at my local Longo's. Get inspired by the rich colours, textures and shapes that you can find especially in the produce and floral departments. From cranberries, pomegranates and winter greenery to herbs, lentils and candy, you'll find everything you need in one place for unique holiday decorating ideas.

Not sure where to start? Focus on three main areas. Your entranceway, tabletop and powder room are all key parts of your home that will be seen by visitors who drop by during the festive season. With a few simple ideas, you can transform these into beautiful focal points in your home that will leave your guests wondering how you did it all.

Outdoor entranceway urn
Warm up your entranceway and welcome your loved ones with a classic urn used in a unique way that will spark conversation at the door. To make it easy and simple, start with a pre-filled urn that features fresh greenery. To add further panache, insert birch trunks, vibrant red dogwood branches and hypericum berry boughs in the centre for added height and great contrast. Add colour and texture with ruby pomegranates, fuchsia or green dragonfruit or large red apples, spearing them using wooden skewers. For a final touch, insert large cinnamon sticks to add some holiday fragrance. Remember to use layers when building your holiday urn, incorporating varying heights and using the colours of the season.
