To add a bit of Glitz and Glam to your holiday décor take a mercury glass vase or urn, line the bottom with tin foil and put a string of white lights inside and hide the cord in the back. Add you favorite fresh greens: pine, magnolia leaves, evergreens, juniper, boxwood and some holly berry branches. This can be particularly festive lit up at night on a mantle, side board, console or end table.
When putting your garlands on the mantle or banister add some fresh greens: magnolia leaves, boxwood, pine, holly and wire around garland to give it a real full look. It will look and smell just like Christmas! Do not forget to add the lights! Restoration Hardware has battery operated lights that are wonderful and easy to use!
