A Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!


Christmas is over the corner and if you didn't buy a natural tree probably you have an artificial one or you just get a few fir or pine branches. Maybe it's time to think of something new this year? I want to show you a few ideas from the internet of a room, table, chandelier or window decorations.
Take a few lemons, oranges, apples, etc. In a wide bowl, basket or box set spruce, pine, juniper or any other coniferous twigs, add candles and put between them whole or sliced lemons, oranges or tangerines. We have beautiful and tasty decoration, especially for children:



 Let's try to decorate a room with cones. If walking in the park or forest, you have collected cones, now you will be able to use them.
Fasten coniferous twigs with thread or wire in the form of garlands and secure cones in any order. To make it easier is necessary to make a flat cone surface cutting off the lower scales.


Another option is to higher hang cone ornaments. To do this, attach a beautiful colorful ribbons to cones. Hang them on a chandelier, a window or on the Christmas tree:


 
You can paint the cones using any nail polish. They can become completely silver or golden sparkling, or to paint only the edges, also turned out beautifully. And if you add beads ....


If there is a "boot for gifts", then you can fill it with twigs, berries, beads. Any coniferous branches can be painted perfectly.

 

Then we find a fallen branch in the park or in the forest, separate the piece and the basis of our decorations is ready.
Now you simply brush or paint varnish this branch, sprinkle it with any white powder (chalk, flour, salt) and it will turn "snow-covered". Secure the branch in a vase or glass jar and start to decorate it. What to take as decorations? Beads, balls, cookies, candy, favorite Christmas decorations, handmade stars, snowflakes, hearts, berries and so on.



Now the special flowers! Let's look ornaments with "Christmas Star". White, red, pink poinsettias look great in a vase, in a deep dish, in a tall glass. You can add a candle or a branch of rowan, hawthorn, spruce, and cones:



 Having inspired ideas, I took red and white poinsettia and have made a composition with flowers, a basket and candles:


We will meet in  New year and I'll tell about Russian Christmas on January, 7th.  


 A Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I wish each of you peace, joy and love in this holiday season.

Feliz Navidad y Feliz Año Nuevo!

Een Vrolijk Kerstfeest en een Gelukkig Nieuwjaar!

 En riktig God Jul og et Godt Nyttår!

Häid jõule ja head uut aastat!

Hyvää Joulua ja Onnellista Uutta Vuotta!

 Καλά Χριστούγεννα και Ευτυχισμένο το Νέο Έτος!

  Wesołych Świąt i Szczęśliwego Nowego Roku!  

С Рождеством и Новым годом!

  6. Joy and peace at Christmas time. Love all your decorating ideas. I bought our Christmas tree as a little sapling a few years ago . It's growing happily in a pot and is now about 3 feet high.

  8. What colourful and cheerful decorations these are! Here in NZ the pohutukawa flower provides the red - you can see them in a blue bowl on my latest post. Happy Christmas Nadezda; I'm off on holiday tomorrow and will be off line for a while. Look forward to catching up in the new year.

  9. Lovely Christmas decorations you have collected Nadezda, I do like Poinsettias for Christmas and mine arrived yesterday, one red and one cream. I also got one red and one white Flaming Katy (Kalanchoe) which I will put on my Christmas table as part of the decoration as they are quite small still. Since moving to London I haven’t had a real Christmas tree and I miss the smell of it, but my artificial tree looks so real you have to touch it to realise it isn’t real! Have a great Christmas – God Jul og Godt Nyttår til deg og sønnene dine :-)
