Having a Naturalistic Holiday



Let's be honest ~ it's challenging to be Jewish around the Christmas holidays.  I have always wanted to deck the halls, play reindeer games, bake and package cookies, and have theme trees.  The most I really do is buy paper whites or a topiary.  The perfect solution to wanting and being able to do something decorative can be found all around us; in nature.





A trip to Terrain in Glen Mills, PA was completely inspiring!  It's brought to you by the people who own Anthropology and Urban Outfitters.  That should give you an idea of the aesthetic.  It felt good to just breath in the smell of balsam fir and relax a little.












Decorating with cotton, bells,willow branches, greenery, and any plant material, live or dried, always looks warm, inviting, and non denominational.







Terrain's pots are beautifully planted.  They'll give you the recipe you need to recreate one for yourself, whether inside or out


I love giving a plant as a hostess gift.  Take it one step further and create a center or "statement piece"





Spoiler alert ~ If you get a gift from me this holiday season, it's going to be a truffle related product



Terrain is like a little respite from the madness of the holiday season.  Its tranquil environment, sweet smells, soothing sounds of trickling water, lotions and potions, and delicious foods (did I mention they have a great restaurant) are a comfort and joy.


































I wonder what I am going to do with all this inspiration.  If you find yourself in the area, do stop in, but give yourself a couple hours!
