Use branches from the garden to create a unique table setting for the holidays. Cut lengths from a tree, leave them to dry out and then spray on a light dusting of metallic spray paint.

An alternative way to use what nature provides, or fake it, is to make a rustic wreath with garden leaves and spray with metallic gold. Hang indoors or on your front door.

Set a beautiful shimmering table with gold and copper accents. While we love monochrome design, an easy way to add layers of elegance is to incorporate shimmering gold or bright copper.
