Inspiring Christmas Decor

Today I'm feeling very inspired by all the pretty things I'm coming across on some of my favourite sites and stores. I thought I'd share a few of my favourites with you, all of which look like we could easily recreate them. You can bet I'll be trying my own versions of at least a few of these very soon.

Isn't this simple tiered candle and ornament display amazing? It would be sooo easy to do, too. It makes me want those little C&B ornaments I showed you here even more - they'd be perfect.

These upside-down wine glasses make amazing candleholders. I would love to try this with some of our stemware. I think it's brilliant!

This little evergreen planted in a teapot is perfect. It would fit right in here on Simcoe Street. Isn't it adorable? It could go right on the little round end table in our living room.

Little ones would love this gumdrop candy creation from Martha Stewart, which looks super easy to do.

These hand towels would be super cute in the guest bath. Another project that makes me wish I could sew...

This would make a beautiful centrepiece. I love this one so much. I might make a version of this for my coffee table (and could use it for dinner parties, too).

I like this one because I'd never thought to put taper candles in stem vases. I like the simplicity of the combo of candles and flowers here.

And these simple ornaments under a glass cloche are lovely. This display could go in any room of the house. Mine would have blue instead of green, I think, like the ones in my china cabinet.
Hope some of these ideas were inspiring to you, too.
I'll be doing a feature sometime this month on my favourite blog decor ideas - let me know if you have a Christmas decorating idea you want me to see! (Just leave a comment with a link and I'll hop right over to check it out)
