“Nature is the muse for this glowing centerpiece. Fill a glass cloche with clear ornaments (with their caps removed) along with shapely pine cones and evergreen tips. Flip the cloche upside down on a paper plate, place on the table, and remove the paper plate. Surround the cloche with more evergreens for a fresh, fragrant display.”  Better Homes and Gardens

Muse?   Cloche??  I just liked the paper plate idea.

“This elegant arrangement is made of  ‘Casablanca’ lilies. Simply strip the leaves off and tie the stems together, pushing the bottoms into florist’s foam. Lilies usually last two weeks from bud to end of bloom, so this decoration will last through New Years!”  BHG.

Look how pretty:

“Make simple Christmas ornaments the center of attention by arranging them in a square, clear glass vessel wrapped with pretty ribbon. Set the package on a silver tray, then embellish the inside and outside of the display with faux snow and additional baubles.” BHG

Look how simple and elegant this arrangement is:

“Boxwood clippings in a white tea cup become a tiny holiday tree. Fill the cup with oasis foam and stud with green clippings. Use a hot glue gun to attach silver dragees from your cake-decorating stash. Add sparkle to natural cones and acorns with a light spray of silver paint.”
