Now is the perfect time to bring some nature into your home and add a little "wow"
Cattails make a dramatic display - Cut them down to place in a vase on your mantle or table.
Leave them long and put them in a large vase in a corner of the room.
Add some of those feathery reeds you see along the side of the road.
You can also turn your bed at an angle in a corner of the bedroom and place your display in the corner behind it. Don't forget to coat the cattails with hairspray so they don't explode!
For another look - pick up some dead tree branches and spray paint them. Put them in a vase, alone or in an arrangement. Black is dramatic, but don't stop with black - experiment with different colors and coordinate with a set of dishes, a decorative pillow, a throw, etc.
Pinecones are plentiful now and look great in a bowl as a centerpiece. Add some acorns and nuts. Use individual pine cones as place card holders at your next holiday dinner.
