Lush Greenery

Sometimes, greenery is all you need. Adorn an elegant stone fireplace with oversized greenery garlands for a look that's simple yet so good. You can add a few candles for good measure, but there's no need to go overboard. Use greenery with larger leaves, such as silver dollar eucalyptus, for the biggest wow factor.
