Feather Your Holiday Nest...!

What could be more delicate and pretty than a feather tree for the holidays? Welcome your guests with a modern take on "winter wonderland" with billowy feather trees reminiscent of a Christmas snow fall. Snowy white and pale gray feathers that rustle whenever the door opens, their softness calling out to be touched, and their quiet importance that allows surrounding decor to share the spotlight. 

We used several trees (and a feather wreath encircling a candlelit hurricane) to dress up this space and they always elicit oohs and aahs from all who enter. Dress a console table with tannenbaums (below) in differing heights and color hues and add natural elements like flocked pine cones, white twigs, and presents wrapped for giving.  These storybook visions truly set the scene for a winter white Christmas.
 Feather trees are light and easy to move around the house to change your
decorating scheme.  Perch on side tables, bedside tables or decorative foot
stools to add a touch of Christmas everywhere. Consider single trees to dress up a buffet table or bedroom bureau or do multiple trees in a large open window or across the top of an oversized mantle. Everlasting and non-shedding, these trees look spectacular the whole
month between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
 A white feather wreath adds instant softness to a winter white table. Place in the center of a dining table, outfit with a hurricane and battery-operated pillar candle, and wow your friends and family with your creativity:

 Create an instant centerpiece by placing the smaller feather tree in a large
bowl. Surround it with small wrapped packages and faux snow.  Use on a coffee
table, console, or in a foyer perched on a stool.
Now if only dressing ourselves for the holidays could be so simple and stunning!
