No, we will never get sick of jars! These look great with glitter on the bottom, on the top, in a chevron pattern or however you imagine them. Place one or two small flowers (real or faux) or a flameless candle to add a little mood lighting in a window or on a dining room table.

Use what you can find outside, at a flower shop or at a local farmer’s market. Pine boughs, pinecones, sticks and other natural plants and objects can create a rustic look to complement the coziness of the season. Simply spread them out in a centerpiece, on a mantel or get crafty and create shapes, personal arrangements and more.

In addition to stylish decor and country home furnishings, we hope your home is filled with warmth, love and happiness this season. Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
