#4. Making Stemware Merry & Festive 
Turn your stemware into little works of holiday art.

#6. Bell Jar with Eucalyptus & Ornaments
Simple yet elegant. 4-5 ornaments on the bottom will help to stabilize the eucalyptus inside the jar. This easy centerpiece idea brings drama and height to the table. And stringing a cookie with bakers string adds a fun and whimsical element, too. Tip: Using ornaments in one color will keep the look elegant. Vary the ornaments and color to get the look you want.

#7. Floral Beads and Clear Glass Balls
Glass balls are a wonderful item for your décor arsenal–not only do they reflect the light and colors, but they act as an anchor for whatever you plant inside them–and in this case, wire beaded flowers. So pretty in the light–looks like something right out of Narnia! Tip: Use this idea if there is natural light pouring in onto your table.
