At first I was going to dress it with mini christmas tree balls, but when I saw the price ($5) I decided to hit the dollar store. I went twice and unfortunately they didn’t have mini ornament balls or the gold garland that I was looking for. So I decided to make my own.

We gathered berries from our palm trees and pine seed husks from a nearby pine tree. I was actually looking for acorns, but that’s kinda hard to find in Miami, but so are the mini pine cones. I went to Michael’s and found the perfect gold painted mini pine cones.
