Instead of cut flowers, use small tropicals and ferns in arrangements with poinsettias or orchids. Try poinsettias in shades other than red – like pink, white, speckled reds.
Bring beautiful color and scents in doors with forced bulbs. Paper whites are especially lovely.
Go to the Garden:

Trim the Tree:
Whether you use an ever green or another kind of tree, you can use natural ornaments to decorate your Christmas tree. Try pinecones, sweet gum balls, baby’s breath, dried hydrangeas and seashells.
