One Lantern - Three Ways + Giveaway

I'm a sucker for crafting my own holiday decor...
I mix and match, wrap, tie, switch out. I call it "tinkering."
I'm into e v e r y t h i n g - making it festive and fun.
Tis the season, am I right?!

Same thing when it comes to gifting - I want it to be unique, special and personal.

When I saw this lantern at Hallmark I just HAD to have it.
The laser cut snow-flakes, subtle gold tones and white distressed wood goes perfectly in our home.
I thought of so many cool ways to display it, use it and possibly even gift it.

Here's how I worked this lantern into a beautiful outdoor center piece, a botanical vase and a perfect holiday gift idea: 

So I think I'll keep the lantern outside for now.
It's going to set the mood and tone for so many magical nights out there. Good conversation, tasty beverages and countless memories. That's what the real message is right, collect moments not things?

But because it's the season for giving, I'll giveaway that cute little mason jar!
