How to Create a Simple Christmas Scene Using a Single Topiary

Who out there is feeling a simple Christmas this year? Last year, I had to go all out on my holiday decor for my shoot with Cottages and Bungalows.  And this year, well this YEAR *face palm*, I’m feeling a return to my simple roots. My heart has been so heavy and sad, yet grateful and joyous at the same time.  Thus, I want to celebrate in a more nostalgic, reverent way. I’m excited to create a relaxed and timeless space to reflect this unique year. We could all use a little simplicity right about now, don’t you think?

This Christmas, I will be partnering with The Bouqs Co. for some of my Christmas decor! As seen on Shark Tank, this company truly believes there can never be too much kindness or compassion in the world.  They know the simple gesture of gifting flowers can transform someone’s day, rekindle an old connection, or spark a new one. Their mission is to create a better way to deliver responsibly sourced, farm-fresh flowers and gifts, made with love, to the people whom you cherish the most. I love the environmentally friendly concept of transparent sourcing which means partnering with farmers who use sustainable growing practices (i.e. minimizing waste and recycling water). I love knowing that my flowers and decor don’t just appear beautiful, but they are also serving a powerful purpose for our planet! And if you know me well, you know this truly makes my heart sing!

I have been a customer of The Bouqs Co. for quite some time and cannot recommend them enough.  When I was still in my sales role, Bouqs was my go to for all my customer floral needs.  And today, when I want to surprise someone special with stunning florals, I go straight to to choose my selection.

With a variety of different occasions to choose from, including anniversaries, weddings, graduations, and more, Bouqs also has a plethora of holiday décor selections. In their holiday collection, you’ll find an abundance of beautiful Christmas wreaths, lush florals, plants, and mini trees.

To go along with my simple and timeless look, I’m using The Bouqs’ lemon cypress topiary tree that comes in the CUTEST felt pom pom pot. It is absolutely adorable! This sweet tree is also known as Sugar Cookie. How delightful is that?! This mini tree’s 6.5” planter home is adorned with tiny colorful felt pom poms that are so very merry and bright. It’s the perfect little mix of dots like icing on a cookie! According to The Bouqs Co., “It’s all the sugar, none of the calories, and comes complete with cozy and festive vibes to brighten any room.”  And I couldn’t agree more!

To style my sink area, I combined my Sugar Cookie tree with some Christmas cookbooks, vintage Santa mugs, preserved boxwood wreaths and some faux berry florals.  This scene truly transports me to the magic of Christmas I remember from my childhood.

How are you decorating for Christmas this year?  Are you taking the simple route like me OR will you be going all out?  I’d love to hear more in the comments below!  And be sure to check out for all your holiday floral needs.

    Simple is the best! No one needs unnecessary stress this year putting out lots of stuff and then putting it all away 20 minutes later. Haha. It seems that way! Your home is perfect!

    I dumped my gigantic heavy tree that looked gorgeous but that was challenging to store, heavy, and pricey. I donated it. My simple, pretty, high quality slim tree I had moved to the bedroom thinking I wanted the huge tree in the living room, I moved back to the living room this Christmas. It actually is the prettiest look I think I have ever done on a tred, on this simp!e tree. I have a red and white traditional look I love. I learned a big lesson of what I love and what is special with Christmas. The simple tree is no less special than that big fancy heavy tree was, and it was a symbolic laying down heavy things to the Lord, who never asked a joyless work in the holiday season to live or to decorate! I loved my $35 real looking little tree more. It looks like a real tree! I put out simple joy when I put out the simp!e tree by the fireplace this year. I think I have never decorated a tree better than how this simple tree looks, too. I love it!!!!
