Great idea Runnybeak. My top tip for greenery decorations, if you have a beam/wall, is.... 1. Save the netting stuff from round the Christmas tree, or get some old garden plastic netting and attach to nails in the beam/wall.
2. Ask garden centre for their Christmas tree trimmings - got two black bags for nowt last Christmas - they were glad to be rid.
3. Stick them into the netting, using wire ties. Add holly and ivy. Arrange tinsel and lights and do baubles/stuff the kids made at school etc. And bingo. For me, it is just as lovely to look at as the Christmas tree. And a lot cheaper. It worked a bit better when we lived near local supplies of holly to be honest, but here I have to buy it in. Keep meaning to plant some holly.
Why am I talking about Christmas - arrrrgh! I've been wound in!!
