Take Your Decorations Higher

Adding variations in height to your decorations will make a dramatic difference to the look of your holiday house, porch, or dinner table. It can help to showcase your decorations while leaving more surfaces clear for everyday use of space, too.

What to do - and please don't try to make everything match - unless you already have matching pieces!:

Creating height in different ways, whether by stacking tables, adding interesting boxes or containers, or mixing in a cake plate or stacked candle holder, will add interest to any d├ęcor. It's all about mixing, matching, and setting up an arrangement that pleases you.

*Bonus tip for an easy table runner - several widths of coordinating ribbon layered on top of one another, widest to most narrow. Try a wide, sheer ribbon over a dark, contrasting ribbon, and a third, lighter-colored ribbon as the top layer
