Green Decorating {Raid the Pantry}

When I think of “green” decorating what comes to mind is reusing, recycling, rethinking what we already have.  Today I want to encourage you to open your pantry and take a look.  Did you know you have the perfect “green” decorating tools right before your eyes?

My favorite “green” decorating tip?

Do you have these?

Use them to anchor a candle in a clear glass vase or hurricane.

Or they can disguise and steady a juice glass that’s holding water and fresh flowers within a glass hurricane.

You knew they were bio-degradible and edible.  Did you have any idea that split peas were so versatile?  And could look so fresh in your spring decor?

And one of my go-to items from the pantry to freshen up my decor is…


COFFEE BEANS!   They are gorgeous, organic, and smell wonderful.  Add instant ambience by using them to anchor a pillar candle in a pretty glass container.

Next time you want to freshen up your decor, try raiding the pantry!  And don’t forget that fresh fruit and vegetables or flowers or greenery from your own garden are lovely items to decorate with as well.

Now it’s your turn!  What’s your favorite eco-friendly way to add interest to your home decor?

Have a blessed day!
