      • 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.
      • Tuck wooden toys or antique dolls among pin boughs on a mantelpiece for an old-fashioned flair.
      • Fill glass pitchers or vases with Christmas balls and sprigs of holly.
      • Invert a plastic berry basket over a bow when mailing a package to prevent the bow from getting crushed
