How to display Jesus during Christmas

  • Gather items on a tray
  • add a natural element
  • use lights

The way to display a nativity scene isn’t as important as the meaning. The nativity is to celebrate the birth of Jesus. You will not take anything away by placing Mary on one side or the other.

Making baby Jesus the center of attention is how I choose to do it. Gathering all of my other pieces around Mary, Joseph and Jesus is how I start my display.

I personally move my nativity scene around from year to year. The olive set below is on our rustic wood shelves Ray built. The colorful one on the coffee table was part of my Christmas tour

Use light strands, battery candles or twinkle lights to highlight your set up. Gathering all of the pieces on a tray mixed with greenery or Spanish moss gives texture and layers. Use my Christmas greenery decorating ideas to help here.

My Christmas nights tours are always my favorite with the lights.

Looking around our Christmas home tour main living spaces you will find a beautiful setting.
