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.
