They have to look great, and they have to be cheap. Sort of a champagne-on-a-beer-budget situation. But impossible? No. One of the easiest things to find looking alive and well is any kind of greenery. This time of year, it's all about the holly and evergreen boughs. Another option that tends to look good on any budget: Berries.
Hot Tip: Always snip apart stems of fake flowers of any kind. Breaking them out of their mass-produced state will make them look a million times more real from the get-go.
|All you need: One stem and wire snips.|
|A few sprigs in square vases (aka: two of Nate's ski trophies) for the mantel.|
|A little color for the mantel.|
|A few trimmed branches & berries to cover an empty front porch container.|
|A few with some greenery in a julep cup.|
I bought two stems of pine boughs at the same time I picked up the berries - Show you what I did with those Friday.
