6 ways to upgrade your Close to Home™ Décor Box

Our hand-stained Close to Home™ Décor Box is a simple (but oh-so-versatile) piece that’s equally at home in the dining room, living room or kitchen. With a little creativity (and the perfect personalization), you can build a beautiful centrepiece, gift or organization station for yourself or someone special. Scroll through for our top ideas!

1. Bring the outdoors in

Fill your box with fresh or faux flowers, greenery and herbs that can be swapped out each season. If you’re using fresh flowers, just remember to use glass jars or small pots to catch water or soil.

2. Think outside the box

Dry goods like black beans, split peas or coffee beans make the perfect base for (unlit) tapers or votive candles. In the summer, fill your Décor Box with seashells from your beach travels, and in winter, choose glass ornaments in various sizes and shapes.

3. Decorate the home office

The long, narrow silhouette of the Close to Home™ Décor Box makes it just right for desk organization. Keep notepads, sticky notes and crafting supplies at the ready, and fill cans or glass jars with colourful pens, pencils and scissors.

4. Gift a gift they’ll remember

Create a treasured keepsake for the bride and groom, parents-to-be or new homeowners when you fill a Close to Home™ Décor Box with small treats and trinkets. The box is a bonus gift they’ll be able to use for years to come! 

5. Be the life of the party

The Décor Box makes a stylish setup for your next party or cookout. Fill it up with all the fixings for s’mores (chocolate, marshmallows and graham crackers), or create a chips-and-dip station with small glass bowls of queso, salsa and guac. (Tip: Line the box with wax paper or tea towels to protect both your food and your Close to Home™ piece.)


6. Clear living room clutter

Organize a cluttered coffee table (and corral all those remote controls while you’re at it) with your Décor Box. Add elements like a small succulent or candles for visual interest. Now all that’s left to do is relax!
