I am keeping it simple and elegant this year with my Christmas decorating. Here is a chic and easy idea - pop a poinsettia into a basket to top a blue and white Chinese garden stool. This would look great with any color poinsettia - I've seen lovely white ones and pink ones here too if red is not your thing.
I even have a couple of baskets with chalkboard labels like this. I really love the combination of wicker and chinoiserie - it is such a classic and works anywhere. (Who else noticed that the basket is not centered? LOL)
