Holiday decorating: Faux greenery

Homeowner Victoria Mifsud-Teti doesn’t miss a bauble when it comes to decorating her Toronto home for Christmas. To extend the season and reuse her greenery year after year in different ways, Victoria opts for authenticlooking foliage, evergreens, berries and blooms, which she also carries at her beautiful home decor boutique Rizo Lola & Company.

A magnolia garland accents the window beautifully and mimics the existing curves of the space. Pine cones, twigs, cedar and white balls set in a tarnished silver pot work well together.

Top 5 spots to decorate with faux greenery

1 Mantels
Create a pretty vignette along a mantel, then adorn a sculpture or candlesticks with small bundles of greenery, baubles and ribbon.

2 Place settings
Spare no expense and surprise guests with a unique place setting. Include an ornament in the arrangement as a take-home gift.

3 Tabletops

Stage an eye-catching display by grouping together natural elements in a single container, accented by a few other decor pieces.

4 Windows

Drape garlands across windows, paying specific attention to opening up the leaves and twisting and turning the branches for a natural look.

5 Light fixtures

Dress up sparse-looking fixtures like a chandelier by weaving a vine or garland through its arms in a relaxed fashion.
