A bowl filled with tree ornaments has be done, but nothing brings flavor of holidays long ago as does a large glass bowl of bright red apples and tangy smelling oranges. Or how about a metal pail filled with mixed nuts in shell next to fireplace. Throw in a couple of nutcrackers and kids will be at them all time instead of candy.
Speaking of candy, that holiday favorite candy canes are for more that eating or hanging on your tree. Think of using them in floral arrangements, or tie together using a packing string to make a garland. Tie a string of candy canes around big fat candle (make sure no paper is near wick). Of course you can always attach a candy cane to package bows and invitations too.
