It’s Faraway Friday! This week it’s all about Christmas in Williamsburg. Their decorations are up now in preparation for Sunday night’s Grand Illumination (the first Sunday in December), and on my recent trip down that way, I couldn’t help but marvel at the artistry and talent it takes to make all those decorations, and all from natural items like fruits and leaves! Here are a few of my favorites. I hope they’ll put you right in the Christmas spirit!
The temperatures may be turning colder, but there are still splashes of floral color about. Here is your proof!
Featuring Fruits and Vegetables
It’s probably not a shock that fruits are common holiday decorations for early Americans, but vegetables? How many can you spot?
Whether found on the ground or taken as a prize from the hunt, feathers were commonly used for decoration in early America. Take a look and perhaps be inspired to use feathers in your own Christmas decorating!
Featuring Everyday Items
How fun are these, my friends? As you probably figured from the featured photo at the top, the one with the music is my favorite!
For some doors, one wreath is never enough! Check out the creative and lovely door decor:
