Three round glass vases are filled and stacked. A tree topper finishes off our version of a tree.

On the table, vases are filled with balls. Some hang from our jewelry tree. Try curly willow or branches painted black and stuck in a slender vase or bottle for contrast in shapes. Invoke the rule of three (cluster three objects together) for your displays.

Lazy Holiday replaces the photos that normally hang here. Turned on they add atmosphere.

They're holiday lights still in their old school packaging. Just Bulbs on Beverly Boulevard and Sweetzer are a local resource if you can't find them at your corner drugstore. They're the most expensive thing we bought but we can use them again and again)

Extra balls strung together on a ribbon hang on the front door. The bow's from our Container Store lesson.
