Tip of the Week

Group a collection of nutcrackers, teddy bears, or favorite ornaments together for a simple centerpiece.

If you are handy with wrapping paper, wrap up some empty boxes with holiday wrapping and pile them in the center of your table.

Go beyond the traditional Christmas tree garlands of popcorn and cranberries and try stringing pasta or cinnamon sticks instead. You can also dry orange and apple slices and string them for a country holiday garland.

If your Christmas tree garland breaks, donīt throw it away. You can use the broken pieces to drape over doorways or windows.

Spray pine cones and whole walnuts with gold or silver spray paint and arrange them in a bowl or greenery to make a festive centerpiece.

Make small bowls of potpourri and place them around the house. Mix together some cinnamon sticks, whole cloves and allspice, citrus peel and pinecones.
