Pine cones, acorns, poinsettias, fresh pine needles even cotton balls… all of these elements naturally bring good cheer to the holiday season. Oh, and add some fresh apple cider!
This Resort Girl is not a very good interior decorator, so I rely on others for ideas, and one of my favorite places to visit is RW Interiors during the holiday season. Resort Girl Rhonda White, closes her shop for one day to transform it into a holiday house of decorating ideas.
I always have it on my agenda to drop by for some finds and inspiration. This year, I loved how fresh pine needles were everywhere — even behind chairs and couches. Just think of the aroma in the air of your home with the natural – not bottled – scents. And how a beautiful sewn posetta pillow can create a warm accent.
I loved how the cotton blossoms were the focus of the centerpiece on the dining table. Also, the hurricane candles were filled with fresh coffee beans to give even more natural aroma to the air.
Resort Girl holiday craft parties and even fundraisers are a great place to make natural decorations – while supporting conservation efforts. Our resort community garden held a fundraiser where we sold wreaths and had tables full of ribbons and such to decorate on the spot. Talented RGs were on hand to help those who needed a little creative boost – like this RG! I was the sales person – utilizing my talents – but got some help from my BFF RG to decorate mine.
Another cute idea for kids, I saw at The Roost shop in Bluffton, SC opened by Resort Girl, LaCreasa Allen. It was a natural basket full of cloth elves and reindeer – those would be dear treats for young Resort Girls.
And then I eyed the yummy honey lollipops. I had never seen those before, but they make a great alternative to spoons for stirring a Resort Girl’s morning or afternoon tea. They are also a great way to top off a holiday hostess gift!
There are so many ways to naturally bring in the Holidays – these are just a few beautiful ways. Resort Girls, please share your personal tips to bringing in the outdoors to celebrate the season of joy and cheer. And Happy Holiday wishes Resort Girls for a joyous season!
