It is soo bittersweet

My husband works for the Missouri Department of Conservation. He is outdoors almost every day. 
He gets to enjoy natures bounty for all the seasons. Every once in a while I have a request for him.
In the fall it is Bittersweet- the berry's!!!

They end up with a orange/reddish berry on them, but if you pick them early enough, 
you can get this beautiful buttery yellow berry. 
I took a grapevine wreath that only had a little bit of faux grapes & leaves on it.

I just started by cutting some of the smaller branches off the big hunk he brought home. I did not use any glue or wire, just tucked them in between the vines of the wreath. 

I think it is just perfect! I love that it is not symmetrical & I love that it is all natural.

Here it is hanging on the front porch.

Or the front door?? Hmmm, can't decide which I like better. Any thoughts??
