Festive Ways To Display

Finding the perfect home for your Christmas cards can be a unique challenge. As simple as it sounds, I prefer a big wicker basket so I can look through them multiple times a day. I once tried to hang them on their own individual Christmas tree, and while I loved the look, it was not convenient for me. Taking them down to look at them was just too much trouble, and I like to share my favorites with friends and family as they stop by to visit. How do you display your cards?

Over the years, I have saved pictures for my "someday" idea file- I save everything I see that I like. I started this when we built our last home (this is a link to our home last Christmas and I used a vintage Santa bucket for my cards) and drew our own floor plans (this is the link to our blueprints and it  took us nine months from this link until we had finished construction) with the help of our builder. I needed to be confident that every decision I made was one that I could not only live with, but love.
Though we are not planning on building again for a while, I still use my online files to save clips and photos of things I see that I don't want to forget! 

Here are some festive ideas from my holiday card file to get you inspired!

Happy Displaying!


  1. Thanks for the ideas, I have been searching for some fun x-mas card displays.

  2. Cute ideas! Our fridge is quickly running out of room for picture cards (I leave them out all year)! I need to figure out what to do with the ones I save every year!

  3. I'd love a post about what to do with the cards! I have been saving them in a scrapbook album, but I haven't done anything with them yet!

  4. I love all the ideas, especially the one on the door! I am have to steal it!!

  5. Those are fantastic ideas! Merry Christmas!
