Styling the Seasons - December

I didn't think I was going to have time for a Styling the Seasons post this month, things are so busy right now.  So much for being organised for Christmas this year!  But yesterday when I was tidying up from another photo shoot, I realised I could squeeze a bit of seasonal styling in before the school run.

As always I gathered a few relevant items together for a bit of inspiration, believe me there was plenty lying around (mainly in a heap on the floor)!

Without thinking I popped some rosehips on the chair to get them out the way, and when I looked behind me, the placement and colouring against the wallpaper gave me the starting point.

I know it isn't the first time I've put something on the wall, but I like to break up the pattern occasionally, and a couple of rosemary wreaths strung on some simple string did the trick.

Next the table; I could have created a little scene, like this one:

But actually, true to form, I decided simple was the way to go, a few small springs of rosehips in an earthenware vase were all it needed.

Which do you prefer?

Have a great weekend.
