Winter Solstice Decorating Ideas

The winter solstice is celebrated worldwide. There are festivals, dinner parties, singing and dancing on the shortest day and longest night of the year. 

This year the winter solstice occurs on December 21st and if you are someone who enjoys celebrating this day you may want to decorate your home with winter wonderland designed products or invite your family and friends to a dinner feast.

When it comes to the winter solstice I prefer to spend time with my friends by hosting a candlelit dinner party where the centerpiece features branches from a balsam or Fraser fir tree, I will also add holly branches and accent the greenery with votive candles. 

The tablecloth will also represent winter and I like white or silver with snowflake pattern.

Here are some elegant tablecloths and runners that I designed.  Click the link to view and to find out if the product is on sale.

Winter Wonderland or winter solstice pattern pillows are a must for the floor, chairs and your sofa. They make the living space cozier and inviting and if you are having many guests a pillow on the floor is nice.

For the winter solstice, I like a winter theme that features a forest in the winter season and my celebration is of the light and the rebirth of the sun. A few of my friends are pagan and they will celebrate the Yule. 

The Yule is one of the oldest winter celebrations and as I understand the pagan in ancient times were hunters and gatherers of leaves and berries in the forest seeking food and remedies for the common cold. The ancient people spent a lot of time outdoors so my pagan friends celebrate the winter solstice outdoors by singing, changing or dancing in a circle around a fire that is burning the Yule log.
