Decorating for Holidays:
Some Decorator Tricks

To be sure, the process of finding materials to decorate for the holidays from your winter garden can turn into a scavenger hunt. This is the time of year the garden winds down. So it takes a little extra ingenuity and imagination to feret out all the goodies that are hidden there.

Professionals get around this by buying some flowers that will get tucked in amongst whatever they glean from the garden. Here are some things to look for: foliage, berries, ornamental grasses, lichen-covered branches, pine cones. Flowers that are long lasting, like carnations or mums for their color, are perfect choices to add to an arrangement. On top of that, it has a homemade, home-grown, original flavor and is extremely inexpensive to put together.

Supplement this with your arrangement of attractive fruits and vegetables purchased at the supermarket. Or for an even more unusual look, try a variegated eggplant coupled with purple broccoli, or add some cherries, lady apples, shell beans, grapes and pears. Ummmmm.

Whenever you use branches, cut a deep cross with very sharp scissors into the ends of the woody stems. This will encourage water uptake and prolong its life.

Don't make your dining table arrangements too tall where they will obscure the vision of your dinner guests. If it does wind up too tall, however, place it on a near-by table in the room where it can still be enjoyed by everyone.
