Frugal Holiday Decor: Last minute holiday decorating
Shabby chic coffee table decor with extra candles, glass ornaments and garland. Tip give the candles a stable base by first by filling the bottom of the bowl with sand or small craft pebbles. Then add the ornaments/garland around them.
Plate Display: A collection of transferware plates and platters creates a quirky display above a floral couch. A vintage trunk used as a coffee table and matching wall-mounted lamps add even more personality.
