Silver foliage and white poinsettias create a frosty appearance in this untraditional wreath. To begin, soak a florist foam circle in water and cut-flower food. After darining, cover the form with Spanish moss, and secure it with monofilament line. Add greenery in short pieces, placing some elaeagnus sprigs backward, exposing the leaves' gray underside.
Skip the bow, and use a poinsettia or two for an unexpected wow. Cut a blossom 2 inches below the petals, and then immediately pass the stem over a flame. Add it to the wreath, pushing the cut end deep into the florist foam for adequate moisture.

Who says the back porch has to be attached to the house? One Memphis family enjoys theirs, which is nestled in the heart of the back yard. Although the structure was part of the property when the family bought the home several years ago, its size and scale seem ideal for today. The screened porch section measures 8 x 12 feet; exposed beams on the inside give it an open feel. To the left, an enclosed room that's used for storing outdoor equipment takes up another eight feet.
