Decorating comes naturally to this Santee, South Carolina, couple.
- Fill a Champagne urn with water-soaked florist foam. Insert the frond of a swamp palmetto into the back, and then add two fronds, edges trimmed, to the sides to form a cradle.
- Spray-paint five to seven pampas grass blades gold, and insert them just in front of the back swamp palmetto frond.
- Position a pineapple in the center of the urn (skewer it into place to keep it steady, if desired), and finish the front with magnolia leaves.
