Christmas Decorating on a Budget Idea #1

My new series is here:
Christmas Decorating on a Budget Party to follow on 
Monday the 19th 7 p.m. 
for you all to show off your decorating ideas.
Here’s a very simple idea.  Take your ordinary, everyday glassware and tie
a festive ribbon around the stem to add a little Christmas cheer.
You can use scraps of ribbon or even material that you have on hand.
You could easily dress up what you already have for under a dollar.
 My ribbon has been recycled.  I had it tied to my dining room chandy last Christmas season. 
Very doable don’t you think?
 and your guests will enjoy drinking from your festive glassware.
