Gather those ornaments, put up those lights, string the popcorn
and cranberries. Transforming your home into a beautiful, magical
Christmas site can be very stressful. Consider what you want to
decorate beside the tree. Think fireplace mantle, the railing on the
staircase, foyer table or entry way, table tops, and the front door.
Making a list may help, think of your particular collections, and
add lots of candles and votives. To that, use seasonal garlands
and greenery. Natural items like pinecones which can be spray-
painted gold or silver, pomegranates and fresh fruit and nuts
look great placed in bowls or baskets. Luminarias look fantastic
outside by the front door for a festive greeting. Add a decorated
wreath and you're set to go.
As you decorate for the holidays, enjoy the Christmas music,
have a cookie, and keep in mind the real joys of the season.......
faith, hope,and peace!!
