While I love holiday decorations, I also love the clean, fresh start you feel when they come down. Our living and dining room look so clutter free now, which is a nice way to start the year.
I also love how this time of year is kind of open in terms of decorating. There is no set theme, idea, etc. to guide me; nothing but my own imagination! In keeping with the clean, fresh start, I wanted to keep whatever I put in place of christmas decorations crisp, natural, and airy. Enter, box of clementines that I've been munching on recently.
I brought back out the cream and straw colored placemats to keep it airy and light, replaced the silver ornaments with bright orange clementines, and arranged a pine branch behind the bowl to remind us that it's still winter! (which we might need reminding of with the unseasonably warm weather we've had to far this year....)
A fresh (and delicious) start to the new year, for sure.
