The Living Room

ideas in the living room:
* create your own cloche with a cheese tray dome
* use large vases or jars for jingle bells or ornaments

* use a tiered serving dish as an ornament tree
* frame gift wrap and ribbon for easy wall art

The Den

ideas in the den:

And finally...

Find ways to emphasize that Jesus Christ is the reason we celebrate this season!

Beautiful! I am so glad you did this post! I didn't want to get caught staring/gawking the other day... My faves are the pinks in the kitchen and I can't get enough of all the books.
