I love the look of a simple 4" width satin ribbon used as holiday garland. Easy and a perfect holiday look like this image in the new West Elm catalog. Drape satin ribbon over your mantle and add ornaments--that's it. No time at all. You can get 4"wide satin ribbon at Paper Mart.
A West Elm store just opened up in my neighborhood. I'm definitely going to be hitting up that store after Christmas for some holiday decor discounts. I love all the modern Christmas decorations.
