Give the traditional red and green color scheme a twist by using only red and gold ornaments on the tree, so that the pine needles, gift ribbons, and threads of green in the tartan blanket are the only green elements. This look proves that a nostalgic color scheme can be updated for a fresh, modern look.

A rich look for traditional Christmas decorations starts with a stunning mantel. Start with a store-bought garland . Space five pieces of water-soaked florist foam , secured inside cages, along the mantel. (Cover your mantel in plastic to protect it.) Cover the foam with pieces of store-bought garland.

Next, insert clipped magnolia, holly, pine, and cedar into the foam. Make loops from aspidistra leaves by poking the stems through the tips of the leaves. Insert the stems into the foam.

Complete the look by layering in milo, millet, and rose hips . On the sides of the garland, wire in items that don't require water. Fill in holes with more magnolia. Keep it looking fresh by misting with a preservative called Floralife Crowning Glory Solution .
