Christmas Decorating Tips Not to be Missed!

We always seem so suprised when we turn our calendar to the month of December and then panic sets in when we realise Christmas is just around the corner.

Do you set up your table all fancy for your guests?  Here’s a post I wrote last year on Christmas Table Decorating where settings range from  traditional red and greens,  to bold and radiant, over the top, fru fru designs.  Have a read and tell me which is your favourite, I like the one pictured below best.

Here is a great look created by Maira Killam that shows what you can do if your lucky enough to have a fireplace in  your home to adorn with Christmas ornaments.   I especially love how she has added the Christmas balls into the garland with ribbon.  No fear of them falling off by grabbing and curious little hands.  (or less of a chance I guess!)

I have limited storage space, so re-purposing  some of my seasonal decor items is a must. In less than two minutes and for under $6, this is how I easily switched out the wreath on my own front door to make the move to the next season.
