They pick up the festive mood of sparkling glitter and tiny white lights quite nicely.
Some of the small mercury glass votive holders have candles in them, while others have cryptanthus.
My trusty sparkle wreath gets pride of place on the mantel.
And few of the bottlebrush trees make an appearance this year.
All of the ornaments on the tiny tree are vintage. It's been years since I added to the collection, thankfully the old standbys are still holding up.
I first thought the bromeliads would be good poinsettia stand-ins...
But I ended up purchasing a few of those too, which I treat as cut flowers and arrange in vases.
I also got a little creative with tiny cuttings and mossy bits.
So while it's nothing over-the-top, it's enough to recognize the season in a way that makes me happy.
And really, that's all that matters!
