Freshening up

If I decorate the house just after Thanksgiving, real greenery is getting dry by Christmas week.

I don't mind freshening everything up a little. In fact, it's a good excuse to change the scenery.

Now is the perfect time to polish your silver and pull out your serving pieces. In the meantime, put them to work doing double-duty for decoration!

I love all the orange and green. VERY refreshing!

And did you know that toothpaste is a fantastic (and cheap) silver polish? Must be paste.. not gel. I don't have a lot of tips so I share those I do. :)

Meredith,
Do you use something to hold water in the arrangement? If so, what is it called and where do you get it? And then, does the fruit actually touch the water and thereby spoil?
Just learning. Thank you.

Thanks for the inspiration - the greens on my end table were looking pretty sorry!
