Happy Monday. . . I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! I spent the weekend decking the halls and enjoying some Christmas nesting on the porch.
To kick off the holiday season, I’m joining 5 other bloggers for a Holiday Home Tour with Lynch Creek Farm and a wonderful giveaway to help you deck the halls and feather your nest!
We enjoy our porch 10 months out of the year and are fortunate to have mostly mild and sunny weather throughout the month of December.
To make things merry and bright on the porch, I added some blankets and books to curl up with for some cozy reading and Christmas inspiration.
Cardinal ornaments have flown in to land in a glittery nest, tucked in among pine cones in a poinsettia-filled basket. . .
And adding a seasonal and vibrant pop of red, to hang from a birdhouse.
And a cardinal-lidded teapot is ready to pour a Christmas blend!
I had a little Christmas nesting inspiration from this Wildlife Adventure Wreath from Lynch Creek Farm, complete with a cardinal perched on a noble fir bough and cheery red bird house!
Lynch Creek Farm wreaths are the freshest in the industry, with fresh evergreens procured from the forests in their backyard of the great Pacific Northwest.
Evergreens are ancient symbols of strength, protection, prosperity, and long life in the midst of winter and I love the fragrance they lend at Christmas! A combination of Noble fir, white pine, incense cedar and juniper are tied with a plaid bow, paired with pine cones, mixed with faux red berries.
A pair of pillows make for comfortable and cozy nesting, with a bird bundled in a scarf and Santa hat, ready for wintry weather.
A Wildlife Centerpiece from Lynch Creek Farm, with glass hurricane and pillar candle, is flanked by two cardinals. A combination of noble fir, white pine, and Western Red, Port Orford, and incense cedar make for a fresh and fragrant centerpiece, complete with a nest, ribbon, pine cones and berry clusters. I added some eggs to the nest and placed the centerpiece on a tree slice charger for a woodland accent.
Lynch Creek Farm is a small, family owned company, dedicated to producing sustainable evergreen products. Evergreen boughs are cultivated by trimming the lower branches of younger, coniferous trees in healthy and robustly forested areas, along the foothills of the Cascade Mountains.
Once a tree matures to 15 – 20 years in age, it is no longer trimmed for boughs. This practice prolongs the lifespan of the woodlands, ensuring they will continue to grow and thrive for decades to come.
I moved the centerpiece to a table to enjoy by the twinkling lights of the tree.
A tartan plaid throw provides a tablecloth with tree slice chargers, accented with bits of greenery to elevate Lenox Winter Greetings plates.
A nuthatch, chickadee, and cardinal are perched among the holiday greenery on the plates, festooned with red ribbon, holly and mistletoe.
