As always, the thoughts and opinions shared here are completely mine.If you’ve seen a sneak peek of my Christmas tree on Instagram or FB then you know that I’m embracing the “classic Christmas” look this year. I’m all about red with white and some metallics mixed in there too. Also, I can’t do without plaid.
In my breakfast nook I put together a really simple Christmas centerpiece that is very fresh but is really just classic Christmas to me. I really love using natural elements in holiday decor. I’ve been wanting to use rosemary trees in my Christmas decor so when I saw some at Whole Foods this week I picked up a pair to use for this centerpiece. They were such a good size that I ended up only using one for the centerpiece and then added a few other elements instead.
The rosemary bushes came in plastic containers that just didn’t mesh with the look so I painted a couple terra cotta pots to put them in.
I used Americana Decor Maxx Gloss. It gives such a shiny/glossy finish – it was just what I needed to take these pots up a notch.
I brushed one coat (it only took one coat to get good coverage!) of Maxx Gloss paint on the pot then gave it ample time before potting my rosemary.
The centerpiece came together really quickly by just tying a quick plaid bow to the freshly painted pot and adding some pomegranates and fresh Christmas greens.
It’s really simple yet festive. I’m already finding myself picking off the fresh rosemary to use in recipes (so yummy!)
