Decorate with natural elements
Don't buy expensive holiday decorations for a party when there are plenty of free raw materials in your yard.
Correale likes to use Styrofoam cones to artistically display evergreen clippings and create a centerpiece tree.
"At a florist, this would cost you $40 or more," she says.
She also takes real fruit -- apples, oranges, pears -- and spray-paints them gold for centerpieces.
"There are many things in your home (that) can be transformed into something that is suitable for holiday decorations," Correale says.
