The leaves are falling and the colors are changing. This season of the year is one of those times that you may have a tough time figuring out how to style your home. I know for myself personally I have struggled with this in my own home and I think this year I have finally found that niche to make it happen. This Time I chose to mix all the greens of Christmas with the tones of Thanksgiving to create a simple but cozy transition between the seasons.
There are all types of family traditions for these Holidays and it can be tricky to bring out Christmas as early as some other do. Traditions are things that you do not want to change just because someone else has their Christmas out earlier than you normally would just to fit in with everyone else. I always want to keep true to myself and for me, I always do Christmas the middle of November. That is why this year I chose to mix the Christmas greens that I love so much into my Thanksgiving decor. As a blogger I get so many questions has to how to mix season together, well I am going to share what I do and hope that it helps inspire and help you transition.
I choose to start seeing what ones of color I want to use in my Thanksgiving dinner, sounds crazy right? Well, I choose to have some desserts and those are the main attention of my table so that is where I begin. This year I am keeping the mustard tones and the tones of the pomegranates for Thanksgiving dinner. After I have decided on that I go and look through the Monica closet lol for the winter greens. Thats when you can have fun because if you’re like me you have all types of winter greens in there. I wanted to slowly bring in the winter greens, which means I picked the simple leyland cypress and the fur, this created the slow transition to Christmas decor. The center of the table layered with drop cloth fabric for the cozy tones and then a chunky piece of garland that had fall and Christmas faux foods in it, along with winter greens.
Once I had the center of the home ready and layered I saw what tones needed to be added in and I started layering them around the rest of the house. The entry wall I wanted to keep it simple with cozy jackets and blankets with a chunky wreath that matched the table garland to bring the Thanksgiving tones as soon as you walk into the home. While layering with the tones, I chose to add some texture in by bring in natural decor from the outside which included the corn husk and the fresh Leyland Cypress that I cut down from my parents field. This pieces I layered in a dough bowl and with some vintage dishes.
Now I will have to admit that copper tones are my favorite this time of the year and of course I had to add copper to the kitchen and the dinning room to give it all the cozy vibes along with a candle. All the tones that I layered the dining room and living room I trickled into the bedrooms that way the whole home would have a cozy Thanksgiving gathering around the table feel. In the bedrooms I pulled in the mustard tones with chunky blankets and vintage gourds. Adding in those vintage pieces I feel like just made the room feel the holiday cozy feelings that we all love and see in those amazing Hallmark movies.
Transitioning can always be tricking because sometimes you do not know what is too much and what is just enough. I truly hope sharing how I choose what to bring in and help the transition, will help inspire you to have and easy seasonal holiday transition.
