1. Table Decorations
Choose a simple piece of greenery and some pinecones. Add in a decoration or two and you have a simple table setting.

4. You do not need a big green tree
Eucalypts in the garden dropping big branches all over the yard? Collect a few, whack them in a jar/vase and hang a few decorations & wa la! Christmas tree!! This is my favourite way to decorate when we are heading out of town for Christmas but still want a few decorations for the weeks leading up to when we leave. No one wants to come home in early January to a large green tree, but a few sticks are easily packed away on your return from holiday.
