A “free” arrangement of Christmas greenery

Here I used an inexpensive vase , maybe even from a previous floral delivery.  This one happened to have a green tint.  I have a table in my kitchen that I use as an island and often serve from it.  Having family for Christmas Eve,  it desperately needed a holiday touch.  I grabbed my clippers and a bucket of water, forged the cold, and went cutting.  In my area,  I found good smelling spruce, cedar,  a few berries and had an arrangement.  I like filling the vase to the top with water because as it evaporates I’m safe for a day or so if I forget to add more water (as I often do in the hurried time of holidays.)  I also added some of the berries in the bottom of container, it gives depth.
