the set­ting

Wake up to the aroma of a fresh flower blend (car­na­tions, dahlias, anemones, and win­ter green­ery) in a vin­tage At­woods cof­fee tin (try an­tiquead­ver­tis­ing .com for sim­i­lar) set atop a fes­tive red-and-white striped “Wheaton” ta­ble run­ner ($59; pot­tery­barn.com).

the sips

Pour cin­na­mon­in­fused cof­fee (hot tip: Add a cin­na­mon stick to the grounds while brew­ing!) into charm­ing Santa mugs ($6; hobby lobby.com).
