Welcome to The Entertaining House. We do hope you'll pour yourself a cup of tea or a glass of wine and linger for a while!

Ornaments: They're not just for trees anymore!

I'm wild on decorating with glass, metal, even plastic ornaments. They're so simple and so lovely and pack such a wow factor. I have been collecting them over the years. Except for a few remaining antique ornaments that have managed to survive the years without breaking, most of them are fairly new and all of them were inexpensive. I tend to shop for ornaments and things of that nature when Christmas is over when you can claim a bargain extraordinaire! I happened across some beautiful glass balls from Pottery Barn about 15 years ago, miraculously all 12 are still in tact. (I knock on wood as I type this!) I have boxes from the Christmas Tree Shops, buckets from Target and tubs from TJs. I hang the ornaments from chandeliers, place them in pitchers and arrange them in platters. There is no easier way to add an elegant yet relaxed Christmas touch to your home.

The chandelier is still unfinished and awaiting some ornaments... or maybe some elegant bows instead? I'll play around tomorrow and keep you posted!
