Trimming your holiday spending doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style. With some creativity, you can add extra icing to your holiday décor: - Bring a taste of the outdoors in with a "green" theme -- straight from your back yard. Use foliage, like pine cones and holly, to create a lush centerpiece or dress up a mantle. Intertwine the natural flora with ribbons, ornaments or other earthy trends. - Group ornaments you already own in similar colors or themes and either hang them throughout your home or place them in bowls or vases.  - Bring your flowerpots indoors and plant bulbs that will bloom over the holidays, like amaryllis.  - Gather bushels of apples or cranberries and place them in bowls and vases throughout the house. Coordinated with holiday-patterned linens, this makes a stunning display.
