Many traditional home and tree
decorations can be combined with
newer and more unusual ideas to
make the home distinctively bright
and cheerful during the Christmas

The' manger scene is effective
on an occasional table of medi-
um height while a low coffee
table will hold a "Santa-Claus-
in-the-snow" scene, of particu-
lar interest to small children.
This effect is achieved by an-
choring a wax Santa Claus in a
large rose bowl and covering him
with water. White moth balls put
in the water will bounce up and
down when citric acid is added,
giving the impressions of snow-
balls bouncing on Santa's head.

weathered tree branch. Vari-
colored candles perched on the
individual branches will lend
color to nearly any occasion.
Higher style for a formal dinner
is achieved by dipping a thin
wooden basket in fabric dye and
filling with bunches of dried flow-
er hearts and tiny strawflowers
called rockets. These can be pur-
chased from a florist and are held
in place by chicken wire.
FOR THE MANTEL, candles
surrounded with holly may be in-
serted in wine bottles and placed
on each side of the fireplace.
A buffet table may be covered
by a glittering garland as long as
the table, This is done by wiring
a plain green garland to plaster
candlesticks dyed green. The
garland is suspended between
candlesticks and decorated with
silver and blue Christmas balls.
Christmas tree ornaments of
various sizes can be arranged in
the form of a holiday train and
put on a felt track. Angel's hair
smoke and a simple frame around
the scene make the "picture" real-
istic for small children.
