One of the biggest focal points of Christmas decor is the Christmas tree, and I gave some fun ideas last year in my Dec. 16, 2013 entry, http://northwesttransformations.blogspot.com/2013/12/christmas-decorations-2013.html, but this year, I give you ideas for the mantel in your home. If you don't have a fireplace, then consider using the ideas for a stairway, tablescape, or buffet.
Candles, real or artificial are fabulous at the holidays, whether you celebrate Hanukkah, or Christmas with devotion as a Christian, or as an American tradition. Use them during this darkest of times of the year, and continue to figure out ways to use them after the holidays have passed. They bring a warmth and magic nothing else can. These days, with artificial candles that are battery powered, it's safe to turn them on and walk away, too!
Think about the hues of your home decor and don't try to throw in colors that clash with that chosen palette. Instead, think about ways that you can incorporate the colors within your decor with some new fun spaces of sparkle and shine.
