Today I’m sharing the story of my grandfather’s table and how I used Simple Winter Decorating Ideas to add a little sparkle to it after the holidays.
It’s simple winter decorating for your home after Christmas with a DIY snow globe and snowflake ornaments.
My grandfather was a collector.
He filled an old barn, a shed, and every nook and cranny he had with pieces and parts that he just knew would be valuable one day.
Most of the things he collected wouldn’t be considered very important to most people but this small foyer table means the world to me.
It was tucked into a corner of an outdoor porch at my grandparent’s house. This spindly beauty was covered in spider webs and dirt with water stains on the top. The finish was completed worn away.
But I loved it.
It was a piece of my grandfather that I could bring into my home.
During Christmas it was covered with Santa pictures of our children.
But once the holidays were over it looked bare and empty.
That’s when I pulled out a few Christmas decorations out of the attic to share a few simple winter decorating ideas with you. You will notice that I ditched my favorite reds and greens to focus on a winter white theme for these simple winter decorating ideas.

The large abstract painting that usually hangs in the foyer was replaced with a upcycled frame filled with Dollar Store snowflakes.
Two more snowflake ornaments were used to add sparkle to a stack of books and on the lamp.
Love that little gnome! He was a clearance find at a local home improvement store.
My favorite winter tablescape idea is the DIY snowglobe I created with a small floral vase and the top of a cake plate. More about that easy idea coming soon!
Isn’t the little birch house adorable?
Right outside the foyer is the cutest winter wreath you’ve ever seen! It’s filled with greenery, more Dollar Store snowflakes, and white fluffy owls.
The winter decorating didn’t stop in the foyer. Our kitchen hutch also got filled up with my favorite holiday plates, greenery, and bright red cardinal.
