Evergreens

Earlier today I was browsing through blog land and stop to visit Liz at Savvy Seasons.

She had created the most wonderful arrangement using fresh greens.  You can see her pretty arrangement here.

I must confess, I copied her :-).  Liz used her arrangement in her kitchen.  I am using mine in my dining room.


Thanks for the great idea Liz!

When we get closer to Christmas, I will weave fresh evergreens through my chandelier, like I did last year, here.
Welcome Home,
Penny

LOVE,LOVE, LOVE yours! In fact, I like yours better, it is scaled better. I also like the ornaments you used, very pretty, and the tray the vase sits on is very nice with the added greens mixed in. I just may copy you if I can find a tray. Thanks for sharing and for mentioning me, as well. Happy Holidays! xoxo ~Liz

Fresh greens are so beautiful this time of year. We brought our fraser fir in last night and the house smells so good! I love this arrangement, it would be beautiful anywhere and easy to swap out as the branches dry out. Great idea:>)

That is such a neat idea to add greenery on top of ornaments in a vase. I like it on your table. It's always fun to get inspired by something someone else did. That's why I love blogs!

I adore the beautiful simplicity.

Lovely!!

I picked up some 'free' greenery at Home Depot where they throw the discards from trimming their Christmas trees. I used it to fill my window box. Love the smell as I walk by there.

Girl, you did good!! That greenry is perfect for your dining room table. I just love getting ideas from others... saves on the brain cells. hehe

Pat said...

This is beautiful Penny. I love to mix in evergreen sprigs with faux and or just have the evergreen stand alone. One of my favorites is the evergreen by the back porch.

Jeanne said...

Good morning Penny, Don’t faint, it is really me. I have been so busy with a Christmas party here (35 people) and my Garden Club Christmas party (38 people) Not here but a big deal held at our church. I have been having a grand time decorating our home and enjoying the festivities of these two events. Thank goodness, now I can get back to my friends. I have missed my Blogg friends so much.

I love your greens and your beautiful tree in your previous post. You have the perfect home for that gorgeous tall tree. I hope your hubs decorated the top for you. You are just too little to reach that high. HA!

It makes me happy to be visiting you today.
HUGS, Jeanne

Eileen said...

Beautiful! I actually planned to make an arrangement like that from our tree - you know, the extra stuff that has to be cut off - but I wasn't quick enough and it got thrown away. Oh well - at least he cleaned up, right? :)

Calypso In The Country said...

The greens look beautiful! What a lovely arrangement! I have some fresh greens in a few places but they are already looking a bit wilted. Next year I think I will stick them in water some how. Your room looks very festive!
