house to add that extra flair.

Arrangement
-Tin bucket of any size that fits your needs.
-Cut a block of designer oasis to fit the container and
submerged in water until fully watered.
-You can cut your own greens from outside or go to a local
grocery store or nursery where you can buy them.
-We used mixed greens of cedar, pine, and other holiday greens.
Fill the container until you can not see the oasis and add silk
berries, ribbon, holiday bulbs for a perfect centerpiece.

elements that give that rustic feel.

as cinnamon sticks


Metallic Style

-Ribbons in few different sizes to create interest and style in
colors of black, ivory, shades of gold

the ribbons once tied in a bow.
