Use seasonal color to create an elegant new look with a palette of burgundy, bright green and white.

Arrange miniature deep green conifers around a trio of taller lime green ones in a low taupe bowl. After the holidays, plant them in garden beds.

Make patio chairs more inviting with seat cushions and pillows covered in outdoor fabrics to match the flowers. White fabric picks up on the border's white blooms, adding to the garden's serene palette.

Supplement existing plants, such as the azaleas and ferns pictured here, with an edging of white cyclamen. Tuck lamium or a similar variegated plant between the cyclamen to add a lacy skirt of frosty-looking greenery.
