This Scandinavian-style greenery "chandelier" is an eye-catching way to draw guests to a holiday cocktail or buffet table. It's fashioned from a pair of cedar wreaths that have been adorned with wine-colored satin bows and suspended from the ceiling with lengths of the same ribbon.
Fresh garlands tied with ribbons enliven plain stockings. When cast in sunny shades, the stockings create vibrant accents for a Christmas-morning gift exchange. The stockings featured here are trimmed with Port Orford cedar, a delicate-looking evergreen that is versatile and hardy, and eucalyptus, which dries nicely and smells lovely.
The shiny green foliage of a boxwood wreath embellished with a quartet of slim satin bows captures the classic Christmas pairing of red and green. This window wreath could just as easily adorn a door or wall to make a festive statement.
