To hold candles more firmly in their holders, use miniature cupcake liners. They fit into most candles holders and can be purchased in pretty silver and gold tones.
Give your table a decorative dimension by placing a paper doily over fabric place mats - or over a tablecloth - at each place setting.
Spray your precious table linens with a fabric protector a few days before you plan to use them. Then the inevitable spills will be less likely to stain.
Switch a lampshade to one in a dark solid hue for an intimate ambience.
Arrange candles in front of a mirror to double the magical glow.
Pile colorful mittens, mufflers and knitted caps in a big basket by the back door for a bright room accent.
For a great holiday scent, buy a small fragrant topiary-such as rosemary- for a kitchen windowsill.
Buy fragrant soaps, wrap them in colorful tissue and place them in a basket in the guest bathroom.
Tie ribbons around the the base of candlesticks for extra decor.
Arrange a group of candles -both votive and tapers-on a pretty mirror or tray. Even unlit, they'll look festive.
