I just landed in cold and rainy Chicago and It was so great coming home to a Christmas-y homestead! Every year my mom ties little red bows on chandeliers and sconces around the house, and I think it looks great and gives the house a simple and traditional Christmas look (it's easy and cheap, too). Plus, you can tie a little bow around anything: lamps, knobs, drawer-pulls, 85 lb. golden retrievers, whatever.
