My most favorite way of decorating my home for Christmas is when I’m able to use fresh greenery from the garden. I first fell in love with using fruits and greenery in decorating when I visited Colonial Williamsburg many years ago.
That was when I saw my first apple cone or apple tree centerpiece. (Tutorial for making a Colonial Williamsburg style fruit cone/tree centerpiece can be found here: Colonial Williamsburg Apple Cone Tree Tutorial)
The book I’m sharing today shows how to make an apple cone and many of the other decorations you would see on a visit to Colonial Williamsburg.

3 Things I Like About This Book:
- Great tutorials for many of the beautiful natural greenery and fruit decorations you would find on a visit to Colonial Williamsburg.
- Information and tutorials cover making wreaths, cones, topiaries, kissing balls as well as decorating Christmas trees, mantels, tables, stairways and windows. Love the pictures showing these being used in Colonial Williamsburg homes.
