HGTV's Celebrity Holiday Homes shows the gorgeous southern Christmas decor chosen for Trisha Yearwood's home. Evergreen foliage and roses in warm tones provide a holiday palette that's both fresh and inviting. Some of the greenery was gathered from Trisha's own backyard.
A few flea market finds, a simple dining table painted glossy black and vintage chandelier transform one corner of the attic into a lovely little spot perfect for small, intimate dinners with good friends. No need for an overblown vase of fresh flowers when a few evergreen sprigs will do!
If you want to skip the evergreen sprigs, craft something that will last year after year with these ombre kissing balls. You'll need: 9x12-inch sheets of felt (in your desired hues); 3 floral foam spheres in different sizes; fabric scissors; hot glue gun; hot glue sticks; twine; marker; furniture tacks or push pins.
To make this dining room ready for the holidays, designers added sprigs of evergreen to the chandelier and buffet, then added wintry accessories like snow-dusted pinecones and a small white Christmas tree.
Looking for a quick and easy holiday table centerpiece? Follow designer Carole Weeks' lead and use an existing sculptural object, even something from the garden like this swan, and surround it with evergreens, bows and holly sprigs.
Greenery draped around this dining room's chandelier is a fresh, lush look. The winter wonderland continues on the table with rustic bottle brush ornaments and a sparkly white Christmas tree. Sprigs of evergreen and pinecones accent each place setting.
This mix of flowers in a shade of deep crimson take your standard holiday red and green arrangement to an all new level of sophistication. Add a few sprigs of wintry evergreens into the mix to keep it seasonal.
"Colorful produce is a fragrant and easy way to add style to the entry," stylist Matthew Mead says. "Inexpensive fruits like green apples, tangelos and lemons" add interest everywhere, from centerpieces to the staircase, and create engaging focal points, he says.

What a difference the details make. Designer Alice Cramer recommends tucking bits of evergreen onto gift wrapped packages. "I love a simply wrapped gift with a sprig of greenery which adds a personal touch," says Cramer. And in this keeping room, design firm Shayelyn Woodbery Interiors uses that same idea at a table setting, tying a bit of evergreen with a pretty gold bow and bringing out the festive gold utensils to further amplify the holiday mood.
