Swag the Mantel
The antiqued convex mirror hung on chalky walls influenced Sybil's frosty palette. A collection of fluted vases, julep cups,
and chalices makes it easy to display (and replace) choice blooms throughout the season. The foliage base will take you well
past New Year's; the flowers will last five days.
How To: Begin with a base of silver artificial garland. Then tuck in layers of two kinds of fresh eucalyptus (silver dollar and seeded), as well as dusty miller placed in water tubes. Add silver brunia, white ranunculus, star of Bethlehem, 'Sahara' roses, eucalyptus pods, succulents, and snowberries to vases and along the mantel.
