Special Delivery - Holiday Decor Tip #1


With the holidays in full swing, 
I'm thinking about my blog friends.

I know you are ALL as busy as I am, 
trying to shuffle work and pleasure,
decorating and entertaining,
and the often miserable weather outside...

So I thought, 
"What would be a nice little "cyber" gift 
I could share with you to make the season just a bit more enjoyable
and less hectic?"

A couple of years ago I posted
The Twelve Days of  Decorating Design Tips
I included tips from my own home as well as
great ideas from some of the best in the business,
Scot Meacham Wood
Katherine Greeley
and
the Hable Sisters

It was such a hit that it just seems natural to
offer it up again, with some new ideas
mixed in.

So here's to you, my friends...
some fresh ways to add holiday glamour to your home!

HOLIDAY TIP #1
Bring out your old silver 
and create a winter garden tablescape

A Silver bowl makes the perfect container for Paperwhites.
And the green and silver balls make it so updated!

Elevated drama! 
Can you think of a better way to 
repurpose your hand-me-down compote? 


I'm not one to stash away family heirlooms.
I want to use them as much as possible.
It's so delightful to see how they can be transformed into
something totally fresh and unique,
especially during the holiday season. 


So go on a little scavenger hunt and uncover
some hidden treasures of your own to embellish.
Whether it's tarnished silver, or a set of tea cups,
use your imagination to make them shine this Christmas!


I'll be back with a few more decorating tips
so keep in touch.
