Create or buy a festive wreathe.  If you go the creative route like I have (hey it’s in my DNA!)  buy a circle shaped stylar foam, cover it with some pretty ribbon and pin on a few decorative pieces.  Try some ornaments, acorns or bells for a festive touch.

Collect some tree branches and jazz them up with some glitter paint, spray or acrylic paint and then place them in a vase, add some berries and use them as picture holders.  You can also lay them on your mantle and tie some colorful bows onto them. They will be the perfect conversation starter for the evening.
