I am using some found ornaments and ribbons and putting in my wine cork bowl.
Or simple red candles placed around your home, or any color for that matter.
I guess what I am trying to say, is you can be in the Holiday Spirit, with very minimal to no decorating. Don't feel compeled to overdo it. For years, it was a pine cone basket and that was it. Do what works for you. Most of all have a great day. Yes, I am procrastinating painting the chest. Have a strain in my neck that is driving me crazy.
