Greeting Card Displays Made Easy

What might one do with all the fabulous greeting cards they receive over the holidays?  Share and display them of course!  They are little pieces of artwork, after all!

We’ve pulled together some of our favourite ideas for creating simple, decorative displays using everyday household items.

Christmas cards hung from branches can add a whimsical touch to any room.  Consider displaying cards on many branches in a vase to create an entire Christmas card 'tree'!

An easy centerpiece for your dining table can be created using forks as cardholders. This would be a lovely way to share cards with friends, family and acquaintances at your next holiday party!

This decorative frame from by WhipperBerry is both fashionable and functional. The little wooden clothespins will hold your greeting cards securely in place, and will continue to display your seasonal cards, photos and notes throughout the year.
The simplicity of tossing cards onto a plate or shallow bowl is not only pretty but practical – if you’re looking for an inspirational boost, simply pull out a card and read it!

Remember, these ideas are great for the holidays but would also be perfect to use year-round!
