Holding Place – A Simple Place to Display Christmas Cards

Now that the Christmas cards have begun to roll in, I came up with a temporary place to hold them.

For now, I’m using a Santa basket on my multi-use Pottery Barn basket tray.  Lately, I’ve been trying to come up with a creative solution to display my cards…besides my usual taping them to doorway plan of previous years!

So, for now, I’ll keep them in this cute little Santa basket I picked up at Michael’s.

The basket can be functional and part of the decorations since I always struggle with this spot on my coffee table anyway.  You might recall, how I recently staged the table for fall…

Only to dismantle my creation after a couple hours of crazy-boy/dad wrestling in the family room.

Seriously, I can’t have anything breakable in this spot.

So for now, this will be the place I keep my Christmas cards.  At least it looks better than it usually does…

The remote-holder magazine-stacker catch-all basket!

Have you found a holding place for your Christmas cards?
