Natural Green & White Holiday Party Styled Photoshoot

Each holiday I like to mix it up when it comes to decorations. I don’t know if I’ll ever be the type of person that has a set of decorations that I’ll use year after year. Don’t get me wrong… I keep all my decorations and I try to utilize many of them each year. I do however like to change color schemes, decor placement and gift wrap ideas throughout the year.

My good friend Suzannah from Create/Enjoy came to me with the idea of creating a very simple and natural holiday scene for a collaboration between our two blogs and the hardware and gardening store Orchard Supply Hardware. I was beyond thrilled to work on a new-to-me holiday style. Macey from Motormouth Studio was kind enough to photograph our styled shoot and her photos show how beautiful this simple dinner party showcases natural holiday elements.

We stuck to a general colorscheme of black and white with the natural elements of green, red and brown woods to create this look. One of the best parts of using natural elments in your holiday decor is that you can incorporate a variety of colors and textures into your event. Orchard Supply in Tigard, Oregon helped us find just the right natural elements to create this look including gorgeous 15 foot natural garlands, small potted trees and a beautiful rosemary bush shaped into a christmas tree and in a clay pot. They also helped us create many of the DIYs that I’ll be featuring this with some painting & hardware supplies!

Suzannah even created a festive array of party appetizers just for this event! She’ll be sharing the paleo-approved, dairy & grain free appetizers on her blog soon. I’ll be sure to link to her recipes on this post as they go live!

Natural Hand-Drawn Holiday Party Printables + DIY

I’ve really been into hand drawn elements in many of my parties lately. So, when we decided to go with a very natural look, I kept imagining hand-drawn pinecones on the menus. I created a printable set for this party and am offering it free to readers!

Free Printable Holiday Party // A Well Crafted Party

Directions: To use the printables click on the downloadable item and save to your computer. Print on white cardstock and cut out for use! I’ve uploaded both a PDF version with two items per page for you to print and hand write your menus/invitation information. I’ve also uploaded JPG version that you can open up in a photo editing program (such as Photoshop or PicMonkey.Com) and add your text in digitally.

Bookmark or Pin this post because I’ll be coming back to add in all of the fun DIY posts that came out of this photoshoot!

    Love the printable, and it’s so easy to pull together with a theme around the house just by bringing in some pinecones too! So using this!

      Yes! Totally… we had some pine cones there… but, they were tiny and hid out a bit more than we wished. 🙂

      Thank you! That was actually one of my favorite details. Each year I am a little stumped on how I’m going to display all the beautiful holiday cards people spend the time and money to send… this is a fun way to decorate + it is functional!

      Thank you! That was one of my favorite details… an easy way to decorate but super functional as well. I always wonder how to display holiday cards that people take the time and money to send… I think this is a good way to do that!

      Thank you! We wanted to do something not quite as “done”… we did have a few LED lights in the tablescape, but they were very subtle.

    Like you, I love to have a different color theme each year. This is the first year we are sticking with the same theme as the previous year. Love your designs here! Nice work!

    I am the opposite with Christmas decorations. I used to love pulling out the same decorations and putting them in the exact same spot every year when I was growing up. It was all part of the tradition. I don’t have that yet in my place but I’m sure everything will start to find it’s spot.
