Fresh by the Fire
Fresh Christmas Greenery is the easiest way to bring the spirit of Christmas home!
Greenery: An olive branch garland is fresh, airy, and modern. For a full wreath, wire a slightly smaller form inside the larger one. Cover with bay leaves, olive branches, and silver dollar eucalyptus.
Ornaments: Gently press the wire loops into candlestick sockets to keep them secure.
Selections will vary by store location and limited quantities are available.
Candles: Choose unexpected colors that work with the room, and vary the heights.
If you have a large window in your home that doesn’t usually have treatments, go ahead and hang a simple garland here to frame your space.

Set wire wreath frame flat on a table. Use cypress as the base; attach branches to frame with florist wire. Dip stems of magnolia leaves in florist glue; add to wire frame. Tuck pussy willow into frame. Pierce clementines with florist wire; wrap wire around frame to secure. Add araucaria or other greenery from the yard for texture. Wrap ribbon around bottom of wreath, and tie in a knot. Mist the wreaths with water every few days, especially if they’re in direct sunlight.
Scatter votives of different sizes throughout fresh greenery on the table for a simple centerpiece that doesn’t have to be watered. A small vase is also filled with loose greenery for additional interest.
Silver, Green, and a Touch of Red
Combine three traditional holiday colors for a classic mantel. A wreath of Fraser fir, pine, and cypress is complemented with matching garland. Weave silver beaded garland throughout the greenery and hang oversized, silver pinecones at the ends. Incorporate red touches with a fresh rose arrangement and a few red ribbons.
