Create a CenterpieceUse a footed silver serving tray to display a sumptuous centerpiece with vintage ornaments and clippings from the garden. This will last a full three weeks!
How To: Start with Southern classics: boxwood, pine, and magnolia. Next add large ball ornaments, followed by crocosmia pods, pinecones, and abelia whose flowers have dropped, leaving a showy flourish of pink sepals on the tips of branches. Finish with delicate sprigs of evergreens, dried shelf mushrooms attached to florist picks, and smaller ornaments.
