Here were my key expenditures: I bought the topiaries at Taipan this week with the 20% off one item coupon. Although they were expensive at $55 each, they were worth it as they will be up all year long. They are real dried boxwood and give great height next to the tv. The rest of the decor items came from Rod Works. I got the clock when they were doing the 12 days of Christmas and had 35% off. All of the other items totaled about $60. The ceramic bowl and balls in it were something I already had; I just moved their location. Don't be afraid to look around your house and repurpose an item elsewhere. I got all of the items over a two week period. I left the tags on, so that I could look at them for a while to make sure that I loved how it all came together. As I cut the tags off yesterday, I'm sure you know the answer.
