some of it looks like rosemary and some of it looks like a pine branch of some kind?

Lotus pods, and some of that filler they use in floral arrangements. Not sure what's it called.

It's called asparagus fern

 

But I think that green stuff looks much more like real cedar that has started to bud

AThank you! I'm guessing lotus pods are the ones with the holes?

I have two types of asparagus fern growing right outside my window and they don't look anything like that, but cedar is definitely the word I was looking for for the other stuff.

Local florist? Online greenery supply perhaps?

take a walk in the woods...

The green stuff is a type of moss that grows in the woods and the large round brown things are indeed lotus pods.  I agree, take a walk in the woods, it's free.
