Bring the holiday sparkle to your home

Find a glass bowl or jar

Add sparkle to your home by filling a large glass bowl or jar with silver and gold holiday ornaments and placing it on your coffee table.

Try inexpensive glass vases

Place an assortment of small items in glass vases. Mix gold and silver ornaments with nuts and small pinecones that you've sprayed silver and gold. A few of these vases in a room add instant shimmer at very little cost.

String ribbons and garland

Hang sparkly ribbons and garland throughout your home – not just on your tree – to create a festive atmosphere.

Bring the sparkle to your dining table

Carry the gold and silver theme to your table. Scout garage and estate sales for great decorating items like table runners, gold rimmed dishes and glassware, and silvery napkin holders that enhance your gold and silver theme. If you can't find a runner you like, buy a length of fabric or a curtain panel with metallic threads woven through it.

Use your everyday dishes

Go with your everyday pieces if you don't want to haul out your best china. Dress up glasses with gold and silver glass charms on the stems. Add some pizzazz to your white napkins with glittering holiday napkin rings you purchase or ones you make out of small ornaments and bright ribbons.

Before you head out on a buying spree, shop your storage area – you may have forgotten all the holiday decorating items you own. Then head off to your local arts supply or dollar store and let your imagination go wild. The key is to keep it simple and fun so that you can relax and enjoy the holiday!
