Look outside the linen closet for punches of color. A pink scarf pretties up this table, with painted pot shards as place cards.

Spray-painted white, a regular grapevine wreath gets a quick makeover. Pinecones and stars made from twigs add interest without resorting to color.

Your storage piece can get a dose of Christmas cheer too. Tuck ornaments into baskets and tiered trays, sprinkle with fake snow and you're set.
Thrift store finds like vintage baking molds, antique keys and pocket watches all add a welcome surprise to the tree. Just outfit them with ribbon loops and you're good to go.
Skip messy pine needles for a bare branch. It adds just the right natural touch, without the constant vacuuming.
Some things just stand the test of time. Many vintage ornaments come in blush hues because they matched '50s-era aluminum Christmas trees.
