Christmas is the time of year we festoon our homes with all the finery that brings back wonderful memories & joy. Recently I spoke at a garden club and showed how to decorate your home with wonderful & fragrant clippings from the garden.
The entrance table was decorated with a large Tuscan footed urn filled with an abundance of fresh cedar, pine, magnolia, nandina, holly, & umbrella palm. A set of 3 glittery bottle brush trees completes the look.
The dining table was set with a beautiful magnolia garland complimented with blue & white vases and mercury glass vases filled with cedar, pine & holly. The buffet featured a yellow Tuscan grapes cachepot filled with cedar & nandina and topped with a red gazing ball.
The mantle featured a classic magnolia garland topped with a silk plaid ribbon. An extra tall Tuscan vase was filled with umbrella palm and red flowering branches. Tall red candles completed the look of the mantle
Look to your own garden for inspiration this Christmas and make your own home just as spectacular!
