Adding live greenery can bring a freshness to your coffee table tray, says Kathy Story of Clairebella Studio. She also tries to match the decor on a patterned tray with the tray’s theme, such as putting a pineapple candy dish on a tray with tropical leaf print.
If you want to add live greenery to your front porch entry but worry about proper care and upkeep, stick with arborvitae in ceramic pots. As long as the front porch receives direct sunlight for a good portion of the day, the trees will thrive for a month or so leading up to the end of the holiday season. After that, it's best to plant them outside in full sunlight.
Adding a touch of greenery to your mantel will instantly give it a more lively look. Look for objects that can accommodate a small potted plant or cut flower arrangement on top or inside. Once greenery is added, the look will feel fresh.
