  1. Turn those holiday cards into decoration. Here’s a great idea to hang them from the staircase
  2. Buy some simple flowers and place them all around the house. Poinsettas are always nice, but think outside the holiday box, too. We love the look of these paperwhites at Midwest Living, and these dried magnolias in Katharine’s own home.magnolia
  3. This ornament centerpiece is so easy! Sue does this once each year herself.
  4. If you have children or grandchildren, spend some quality time to make snowflake garland with them, and hang in a casual room such as kitchen dining area or a child’s room. Some easy directions, here.
  5. This red and white candy and flower centerpiece is so easy and festive.
