Simply fill a platter with nuts, insert a large round candle and place poinsettia blooms around the nuts for a perfect holiday table accent.
Try draping a length of beaded garland on a lampshade to add holiday flair. You can even use a strand of beads as a curtain tie-back.

A few days before you decorate your Christmas tree, put your tinsel in the freezer. It'll be static-free and easier to drape on the tree.
