Holiday Ribbon

Ideas for Holiday Decorating with Ribbon.

One of the things I like most about the Christmas Holiday is decorating. There are so many products on the market these days that make Holiday Decorating both fun and easy. One of these is Ribbon. There are thousands of colors, styles and widths of ribbon in as many different fabrics and even plastic. Ribbon can be used for all the extra festive decorating touches a home needs to reflect the holiday spirit.

Here are just a few ideas.

Roll the individual place setting of silverware in either a festive paper or fabric napkin and tie it with a narrow strand of Grosgrain ribbon in a whimsical holiday pattern or with a more elegant strand of shimmery, sheer Chiffon or Organza ribbon.

Place an elegant Taffeta or Moire Bow in the center of a side table and let the streamers act as table runners, extending down each end of the table. Place random lengths of ribbon, cut from several types of ribbon, on a mirror and arrange some of your heirloom glass ornaments among the strands, even add a battery candle or votive to add a more elegant effect. Invite family and friends over for a special holiday gathering by printing your invitation on parchment paper, roll it like a scroll and tie it with a beautiful ribbon bow.

Types of Ribbon.

Ribbon is woven in various ways and with similar fabrics for different effects and uses.
