Great idea for Mardi Gras beads and small ornaments:  Just place a smaller vase inside the larger one for the flowers, then fill-in the small ornaments and beads between the two vases.  So cute!

Luke 2:1-5  New International Version (NIV)

The Birth of Jesus
2 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. 2 (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3 And everyone went to their own town to register.

4 So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5 He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.

Until next time...
