A few simple Christmas decorations

I am not putting up a tree this year as we are going away for the holidays.  We will be spending Christmas in Scotland with my daughter and her boyfriend, and then going off to Spain for 4 days over  new years eve.  Its all very exciting............but I wanted a few bits of seasonal decorating around the house to get me in the spirit......fa la la la la..........

I love the cups with cinnamon sticks--where might you find something similar? Are they a particular type of glass? They look almost like julep cups but are seemingly bigger! Great post! xo
