Create a serene winter holiday tableau with this simple arrangement: birch bark wrapped around glass cylinders filled with plants found easily at this time of year. Trimmings from the holiday tree and scented geranium leaves snipped from a house plant accentuate the amaryllis blooms.
Gold-painted pears look straight out of a fairy tale. This gold dust, however, isn't magic -- it's available at baking-supply stores. Magnolia leaves are also transformed with gold, in the form of floral paint. A beribboned, gold-dusted fruit welcomes each guest to the table.
Vintage or new silver ornaments give a table luster. These pinecone-shaped examples are nestled in a basket, clustered among eucalyptus leaves and sprigs of cedar. Juniper enriches the frosty colors of the arrangement, as the blue-gray berries play off the silver ornaments.
