Hello, Beneath My Heart readers!! It’s Bre here from rooms FOR rent, and today I’m sharing some fun details on my Woodland Glam Christmas theme this year. In case you haven’t seen my Christmas Home Tour yet, feel free to grab a warm cup of your favorite beverage and head over now.
This year it was all about bringing in natural elements, along with some shiny mercury glass. I love all things white, and before you think another thought, YES I have 2 small children, and a husband, keep in mind that I only bring in items that are washable! Saves my life :) I brought in creams and winter whites, and soft shades of grey and tan. The major part of my woodland theme was bringing the outdoors in. I brought in lots of fresh pine and cedar branches and tucked them all around the house. I used lots of pinecones, and of course some of my favorite deer themed decor.
I summed up my whole look in the mood board I created below so you can see my go to choices all in one spot. Sometimes when you see a space fully decorated it’s hard to know where to start, and get a feel for all the items used to complete the look.
On the board you see a mix of greens, preserved boxwood, faux snow-covered christmas trees, bottle brush trees, mixed with sparkly mercury glass votives, trees, and ornaments. To add a rustic touch without bringing in more green, think branches, pinecones, rough wood to balance out the mix of materials used.
Below you can see my tree, which is a mix of shiny metallic ornaments mixed in with a rustic garland. I used burlap & ivory burlap ribbon which tied in my crave for a rustic touch while complimenting my love for white. I alternated using a snow covered grapevine wreath I deconstructed and tucked in throughout the tree.

Even if you haven’t started decorating yet, or feeling your decor is lacking alittle, you can never go wrong with seasonal greens. I know most nursery’s will carry greens even if they aren’t a part of your normal landscape. Boxwood is another great one, either real or preserved, to add to the festivities and can be used all throughout the year.
I hope you have a wonderful holiday, and treasure the time spent with loved ones throughout the season!
