Large holiday villages make an impressive display when staged on an upper shelf, within view from across the room or while sitting and watching TV. If your TV is part of a bookcase or entertainment unit, arrange your display around the TV, so that there is some holiday interest when the TV is not in use.
Make sure that what you buy complements the rest of your furniture or your house will look a bit mismatched. You will know what is right for you, just remember to think about those three key components.
Creating small vignettes, will add interest, by combining special ornaments and decorative items you use throughout the year; remember to keep the scale in proportion to the pieces you want to highlight. A cube-type display shelf affords you smaller vignettes, and you can place some foam board cut to the exact size of the cube, covered with fabric or wrapping paper, to enhance your display. To create small scenes within your bookcase, you can paint small boxes that fit your shelves, leaving the open end of the box facing the outside of your case, so your special scene is easily viewed.
Smaller displays of special ornaments can be arranged by hanging them within the cube or shelf unit. Use hangers that can be easily removed after the holidays to insure no damage to your entertainment unit.
