Candy Cane Christmas

Nepali Mitten Garland, $29 Serrv
I love decorating the house for the holidays.  It is a glorious thing to put on Christmas music, make cocoa, and get out the tubs of Christmas decorations.  I think I enjoy it even more than decorating the tree, as there are so many more options for how things are displayed.  My standard color scheme is red with natural elements like rattan, wood, and raffia, and a bit of gold sparkle thrown in, but this year there have been cool new collections of red paired with white and silver.  This "Candy Cane Christmas" theme is lovely, and the combination of stark white with bright red manages to be both crisp and comforting, refreshing and relaxing.  In addition to my yearly draping of the doorways with strands of red straw star garlands from Ten Thousand Villages, I love these beautiful red and white Christmas decorations from Serrv.  How deliciously chic!

I could imagine these apothecary jars filled with peppermint disks, candy canes, and red and white gumdrops for a fun centerpiece.
