Are you lost this time of year when it comes to decor? Here are some simple tips to help make your holiday home sparkle!
Ornament Globes aren’t just for Trees These beauties look great when you arrange them in a bowl, a hurricane candle holder, a vase, etc. Pick an assortment of colors, go with just one or choose a few. Simply put them in the container, garnish with some fresh greens, flowers, ribbons, etc. if you choose, and VOILA! Holiday sparkle on a dime! (For the budget minded, you can often find ornament globes at thrift and dollar stores.)
The Sweet Smell of Spices If you like the scent of cinnamon and cloves, you’ll love this tip! Fill a saucepan with water, add cinnamon and cloves (sticks or powder both work), bring to a boil then reduce to simmer. Leave it on the stove to simmer and the scent will fill your home. Don’t forget to be mindful of the water needing to be refilled due to evaporation, if you plan to keep it simmering over a period of time. I find this method actually works better than burning scented candles.
Hope your holidays are fun and low in stress. Just remember, it’s not really about the presents, etc.. It’s about being with people you care about.
