I like my mother’s simple holiday arrangement at The Motel. She got the basket at a yard sale (fifty cents at most) and the greens are from the farm. Bittersweet is everywhere and when the yellow parts fall off the berries, they easily pass for red winter berries.
I often see piles of “free” baskets in my travels. In the event you do not have access to a family farm, a bit of charm and a winsome smile may very well persuade a neighbor to share some evergreen with you. Don’t forget your garden shears.
Don’t forget to rest today, too!
