[ having a ball ]

ONE OF THE easiest way to add some glitz and sparkle for the holidays is decorating with ball ornaments. They can be fancy vintage ones or cheap ones from the dollar store  - it's how you display them that makes them shine.

I absolutely love the dining room with the red/white and the open beams.

Now that was a fun little tour. Ball ornaments are one of my favorite (and least expensive) things to use, love bowls or jars filled with them. I really like like that silver ball wreath and silver twig candle holder as well.

Loving this inspiration! I've taken a lot of my extra ornaments and put them in a glass bowl. Love the look and it's so easy!

I do love branches
filled with goodies!
And, I could look
at Christmas decorating
pictures all year long.
I save them and one of
these years I will
actually pull them out
in July like I want to
and start planning
homemade gifts and decor
ideas WAY in advance,
when I'd really have a
chance of pulling them
off : ) Thanks for the
inspiration, Lisa!
