winter greens from the garden

for my front porch this year, i was able to use a variety of collected evergreen branches along with red berries and red twig dogwood for my large decorative pot.

in addition, a smaller basket was placed in front of the pot with an additional collection of greens and holly.

by using a variety of greens, the varying texture of the needles provides interest and shape to the arrangement.  other ideas for arrangements include using large branches from a tree secured in the pot, with evergreen boughs placed at the base of the pot along with pine cones.

by using natural materials from the garden, decorating the porch for the holidays is both easy and beautiful.
