"To set the tone right when you walk into the house, put a spare pair of boots in the entryway and stick a few long birch twigs and greenery in them. I like to use the free tree trimmings from Christmas tree lots. The key is to set a jar of water in each boot to keep the plants looking fresh longer. …I also like to tie extra trimmings together with wire and drape them over mirrors and wall art too." —Jennifer Rizzo, author of Creatively Christmas: Inspired Yuletide Décor
