You can use fresh greens anywhere tucked among your mantel decorations, bundled into a big crock on your front porch, as a swag below your windows or on indoor window sills, as little table accents or place holders for your holiday meal and, most obviously, in wreaths.(Photo: Delpixart, Getty Images/iStockphoto)

I use real greens to decorate at holiday time;not only because they bring all the wonderful fragrances of winter to my home, but because they are sustainable and keep me from missing my garden quite as much on these shorter, darker days.

You can use fresh greens anywhere tucked among your mantel decorations, bundled into a big crock on your front porch, as a swag below your windows or on indoor window sills, as little table accents or place holders for your holiday meal and, most obviously, in wreaths. It just depends how much time you have and how ambitious you are.

The key to using greens most successfully is to think beyond your typical winter-themed trees, such as pines and firs. However, they are an excellent start and will bring that lovely seasonal scent into your home. Look for a variety of textures and colors; the variety of shadings among their needles is beautiful, from dark green to grey and even bluish shades. Mix needle lengths and textures, from long and sweeping to short and stiff.

Consider adding holly stems for contrast. Some holly leaves are variegated, which brightens the shades of green. The spiky, scalloped leaves of holly are reason enough to add them to your holiday displays but the berries are truly the icing on the cake for bringing a pop to your arrangement. They range from bright red to orange-hued or burgundy mix them up or choose a shade to accent your other holiday decorations.

Other greens that can add interest with berries are in the cedar family. Their berries come in a range of blues and add a delightful surprise to the typical holiday color pallet. A bonus: that lovely distinctive cedar aroma.

But what will truly make your arrangements stand out from the crowd? Consider the contrast of adding large, shiny magnolia leaves or stems of daintier-leaved boxwood. Both will bring contrasting texture to the needles of pines and firs and the scalloped leaves of the hollies.

One more consideration for truly unique displays? Herbs! Adding rosemary, sage or lavender to displays is the trifecta of delight: color, texture and scent. You can even find (or grow) tiny Christmas-tree-shaped rosemary trees for a sustainable and interesting centerpiece.

Finish off any and all types of green arrangements with your own particular flair;add shiny ornaments (you can lay them among the greens on your mantle or wire them to swags or wreaths), ribbons and bows or tiny Santas, elves, reindeer whatever your heart desires. Use colors to complement your decor or use an unexpected holiday color, like bright pink or blue, for a fun contrast to the traditional.

One of the best parts of this type of decorating is that you can tailor it to your budget. You can certainly purchase cuttings or pre-made arrangements with many of the above suggestions. But for me, part of the fun is seeing what I can find for free!

For starters, take cuttings of various evergreen trees around you property. If you buy a fresh tree, save the branches that are trimmed from the bottom. The tree farm where I buy my tree has a pile of free branches, and I can usually find an assortment of wonderful-smelling textures and hues.

Although it may be too late for this year, plan ahead and take cuttings of lavender. Or plantrosemary next spring and trim it into a conical shape as it grows. Dig it up before frost and plant it in a festive pot for your holiday table.

If you are more ambitious, look for native Pennsylvania evergreens to enhance your property and give you beautiful decorating options right outside your door for years to come.

A shot of the home before building began.

By: James Pruitt


A desire to be his own boss led an Edgerton man to start his own home repair business.

Vaughn Entenman says he has been working on home repair since I was old enough to swing a hammer. After working with relatives he began working on his own full time in 2010. He enjoys working on peoples homes and working with the customer to bring their ideas to reality.

Owning his own business allows him the freedom to be creative and flexible.

I like to be my own boss, Entenman said outside his home. This way I dont have to answer to other people.

Entenman, 37, offers full home repair, from widows to additions and everything in between. He does it as a one-man show.

By working on his own and out of his home, he can keep his prices as low, treat his customers right and still make a nice living.

My customers can use the funds they saved up to go do stuff too, Entenman said.

One of his recent jobs was adding a porch onto the house of Forrest and Casey Church. The Churches had posted on Facebook they were looking to put a porch on to their home.

Entenman sent photos of a porch he had built the summer before in response. And since he had a relationship with the family by being an advertiser, contractor and customer connected easily.

The 48-foot long, 10-foot wide structure included a full roof over a concrete stamped slab. Dimming lights were added so the family could enjoy it at night.

The edifice has several wrap columns that hide the 44s and add an elegant appearance to the porch. The job took two weeks to complete.

The job did not come without some challenges as a sewer line was found to be higher than it was supposed to be and that forced him to raise the concrete slab floor higher and reconfigure the design.

Its the hidden things that present the biggest challenges to projects, Entenman said.

Other than that, the project went smoothly. The weather was nice which helped him complete his work quickly.

Entenman advertises in the Village Reporter and has found that be a winning proposition to get his name out in the community. Satisfied customers help out now through word of mouth.

I am starting to get repeat customers, Enteman said. Once they know I am going to treat them fairly.

Entenman takes pride in his work and the service he provides. He warranties all his work, he said.

Unless a customer has an idea would severely impact the integrity of the structure, such as moving a load-bearing wall, Entenman will take their ideas and develop a plan to turn the clients concepts into reality.

I listen to my customers, Entenman said. What they want is pretty much what I want to give them.

Entenman tries out the concept with cheaper wood to see if it is going to pass muster. If so, he will go with the higher-end materials.
