Green tidings

Instead of draping your mantel with the typical cedar or pine garland, use silver-hued seeded eucalyptus. Artificial green apples provide just the right amount of punch.

Standing tall

Creamy, textural birch poles look stunning any time of year. To create the most impact, cut the poles to various lengths and display in a cluster. For a finishing touch, wrap them with a crisp paper cuff and embellish with a taffeta ribbon.

Door candy

In lieu of a front door wreath, hang a swag of giant pine cones. Wire the cones together at graduated lengths and prettify with a large satin bow.
