South African protea, gerbera and leucospermumin subtle tones of rich pinks and oranges combined with folded pandanas leaves in a simple hand_tied design is an unusual arrangement which would be suitable for any occasion.

Seasonal Decorations _ For those of you that desire to have your house decorated for each season, here a couple tips. Rather than decorate everywhere with everything possible, choose a few areas to keep festive for the seasons. This cuts down on storage needs and overall work. This could be a calendar area that is designed differently each month, or a shelf on the wall with craft items. Changing the clothing of a stuffed animal to reflect the seasons is a nice, safe way to decorate if you have little ones at home. One way to save money and space is to reuse what you have. Sometimes what may be considered as a very season_specific decoration can be adjusted to fit other seasons as well. Retooling your wreath is one way to save on space: instead of having a wreath for every occasion, use one wreath base and change out its decorations.
