I love the idea of advent candles-I for each week of December. At the beginning of each week the family gathers to light the correct number of candles and sing carols. This is a lovely idea! I like the look of the flocked pinecones in the star.
Be as creative as you can be this Christmas with a slim but elegant Christmas tree. Gather twigs across your yard and set them up in a glass jar filled with sand. Hang in white Christmas decor and create more drama with the white wrapped gifts beside it.
