BHG Centsational Style

The holidays are in full swing and it’s a time of year to welcome family and guests into our homes to share a cup of cheer.  Staircases offer the perfect opportunity to deck the halls during this festive season.  Natural holiday decor plays a large part, but there are other creative ways to make the balustrade merry and bright.

Large scale snowflakes will set a wintery scene.  Craft them with wood sticks or use store-bought versions to create a frosty white Christmas indoors.

Secure winterberry branches to the spindles on your staircase and tie a fetching piece of ribbon to hold them in place.  Extra ornaments and evergreen clippings add another layer of texture and color.

Felted flowers in a classic palette of red and white add a fresh botanical detail to an evergreen swag.

Swap the draping green boughs for tinsel instead and finish off the sparkling swags with vintage ornaments tied up with ribbon.

For a light and airy look that is still reminiscent of the holiday season, drape rows of ribbon in bright colors accented with miniature berry wreaths.

Evergreens add a classic touch, and you can choose fresh greenery or realistic faux versions to drape along the railing.  Cozy knit stockings await treats from Kris Kringle on Christmas morning.

Citrus and cinnamon will fill your home with the scent of spice and the verdant color of the fresh fruits of the season.

Cedar garland gracefully draped down the balustrade and secured with satin ribbon sets a simple and elegant scene in your holiday home.   Blooming narcissus in pots continue the fresh white theme and fill the entry with a favorite bloom of the season.

Entries and staircases are a blank canvases each December – don’t forget wreaths and mistletoe, berries and ornaments too!  Together on display they make for a festive and welcoming home.   What is your favorite way to decorate your staircase or deck the halls this time of year?
