Take a Bough

Spruce up the mantel with fragrant greenery of your choice, like eucalyptus and pine, arranged in vintage milk glass vases.

Here's how: If you don't have evergreens in your backyard, purchase scraps from a tree lot or garden center. Cut stems to desired height and insert into vases with water in them. To keep branches upright, cut blocks of floral foam, soaked thoroughly in water, to fit snugly in containers. Drape a swag over mantel for the finishing touch.
