Today I’m sharing how to use dried oranges in seasonal décor.
Dried oranges for seasonal décor as an example, fall and the upcoming holidays seems a perfect marriage. It reminds me of slower times and nature and coupling dried citrus with spices such as clove adds instant warmth for the cooler seasons.
Even though the temperature is 90 and very humid after July 4th I can’t help but begin thinking about the months to come. As a rule, I don’t enjoy rushing through the seasons, life is too short. However, when the weather is too hot to sit outdoors, I’m at the point of yearning for the cool days ahead. Truthfully, it’s my favorite time of the year. So, sharing how to use dried oranges in seasonal décor seems fitting.
