Plenty of layers are always recommended for seasonal décor! Strung garland paired with pennants adds interest beneath a mantel made cozier with fragrant eucalyptus leaves. Blue-and-white accents peek out from among the foliage, and the display finds height in a fun floral display and an elegant, nature-inspired menorah.

A Little Something Sweet
