Not sure why this year more than any other year I am in the holiday spirit so early.  I mean, I've watched 'The Holiday' 3 times already and I sent out our Christmas cards the Monday before Thanksgiving (can we say crazy and anal?). Any-who, I decorated the house last week and had a blast (I know I know...I am far to easily amused.).

Here is a cute, easy and super cheap way to decorate the house using fresh cranberries for the holidays!

 Take some fresh cranberries  and a hurricane like the one below...

 Drop the cranberries into the hurricane, add water and top it with a candle (which I normally do) or a fun ornament which will float on the top.
(Just call me Martha from now on...ha!)

Happy Decorating! xo

Cute idea! I love using "real" things to decorate and this will be less yucky than the mini squash I used for Thanksgiving that are starting to rot-eek.

Great ideas and I love the M&Ms in the dish.

Great ideas! I'm loving all of the decorations. I would have never thought to use fresh cranberries!

Another GREAT use for cranberries is to freeze them and put them in drinks to keep them cold and it's very festive. I use them in wine, punch etc!
