Versatility is Key When Decorating on a Budget

A great budget saving idea when decorating is to use accessories that can be easily altered to reflect the changing seasons.  For example, glass vases or apothecary jars can adorn your table filled with pine cones in the winter, lemons in the spring, shells in the summer and apples in the fall. By changing out what you have in the jars, you get a new look without breaking the bank.  For more great ideas visit
