Choose to decorate with secondhand finds!
My first tip for decorating for the holiday season is to use what you have! These secondhand crystal vases and candle holder were items I already had in my home. To jazz them up for the holiday season I went to my local thrift store and got a beautiful wooden wreath. I also bought some red carnations.
This makes a lovely table setting for Christmas dinners and get-togethers. No need to buy plastic decorations from the mall, make do with what you have and add some festive touches!
