First, is my lighted berry garland.  I have two strands.  These are the best things every.  I have looked for them over and over and I cannot find them.  I have some really pretty berry garland, but it is glass/plastic covered styrofoam so it is kind of delicate.  It sheds no matter how careful I am.  And so little bits of coating (I don’t even know if it is glass or plastic, but I don’t want my cats to eat it!) come off.  So while, I love the look of it, it is not that easy to display and take care of, but the berry garland I am showing you here is awesome.  It is plastic and it is very hearty.  I actually just lift it off of the shelves and put it in a box.  It somewhat stays in that formation in the box so I can just lift it out of the box and put it over the shelf and BAM!  Just like that the shelf is decorated and looking very festive.  This is one of my favorite decorations.  It is usually one of the first things to go up.  So easy and so decorative.Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia in the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex classes, YMCA, Zumba, Nia Technique, SJ City Fit, SJCityFit

Another easy but beautiful (in my opinion) decoration is my wreath made of ornaments.  This one is a cheap plastic version, but hanging on the door, ya can’t tell.  It looks like nice ornaments.  I think this is another easy thing to decorate with.  Just pull it out of the box and hang it and you have all kinds of colors going on.  It is shiny and colorful.  Speaking of wreaths another great one for easy decorating is my bell wreath.  This one I received as a gift from a friend and I love it.  It is made of metal so it is a better quality than my other wreath.  These two things along with my berry garland are the first to go up.

Then there are big red bows.  I don’t know that it gets any easier than that.  Just huge red bows placed about the space.  Big red bows give it a nice cheery feeling.  So festive!

And if you have some, why not use the Christmas plates.  I actually have a plate holder on my wall that has plates in it all year round so when Christmastime comes I just replace our regular decorative plates with the Christmas plates.  Easy-peasy.  They have so many types of Christmas plates you can probably find just the right ones to match the rest of your Christmas decor.  Or get some really fancy ones to be the highlight of your decorations.  However you do it, plates are an easy way to decorate.

Whenever I pull out my berry garland and put it over the shelves I think, “Dang that was easy!”  This year is occurred to me to share and to pick a few things that I think have a decorative POW but that are really easy to put up/put out/display.

What do you think?  Do you have any decorations that take absolutely no time to put out, but really POP?

Let me hear it. What have you got to say about this post?
