5 ways to sprinkle holiday cheer throughout your home now!

Not quite ready to put up the Christmas tree yet,  but would like to get your home into the festive mood? See 5 easy ways to get your home dressed for holiday entertaining.  

Fill vases, urns, hurricane lanterns with a variety of ornaments. Mix together different shapes and shades to get an interesting look.
Give your cloches a holiday update by hanging an ornament or two under the glass dome. We love this look on coffee tables.

Dress up stacked trays with greenery, candles and pine cones. Add a little bling with a sprinkle of ornaments on top. 
(Substitute stacked trays with cake stands for the dining room or kitchen table.)

Do you have bare branches leftover from your fall arrangement? Place them into a vase and pick your favourite ornaments to hang off them. We love this look on hallway tables!  

Layer holiday branches on your bookcases and shelves to give them an instant holiday vibe. Place ornaments on top of books and around display objects for a little sparkle.
