After trying a couple different vases and such, I ended up using a thrift store urn I found for under a dollar.
The buffet is a work in progress...I'm still messing around with it, but the branches will stay. I don't think I will want to take them down when Christmas is over!
Maybe I will leave them up as a winter display. I usually leave some decorations out as long as they just feel wintry. My woodland mantel is a good example...it can stay until it starts to thaw around here, I'll just take the Merry Christmas sign down. One year I put every little bit away and it felt like the Grinch that stole Christmas....bare and a little sad.
