I like the NOEL including the clock. It's the proximity of the mantel to the tree, though, that pulls off the impact. I did it with Red and Black and used a round chalkboard for the O and added a star chalkboard for accent with the year.
Christmas Centerpiece: This table decoration is becoming a hit for every holiday season. Simply flip a wine glass over and place a candle on top. Underneath you can place Christmas ornaments or any other holiday trinkets.
