At certain times of the year we just don’t have quite enough flowers. This is when "filler" is really important.
During the holidays, it is interesting and fun to decorate with natural materials.
If guests are expected and you have no flowers, just pick a few sprays of evergreens from the garden.
If you are planning a Valentine's Day party, either for a crowd or for one special person, I have an idea for a floral centerpiece that is easy yet charming.
At the approach of the holiday season, early American colonists decorated their homes with greenery in the English tradition.
