I thought it would be fun to put together some ideas for flowers around the house for the holidays. You know how much I love to have flowers everywhere, be it single blooms in a glass or large generous bouquets, they are my finishing touch to a welcoming home.
As much as possible I use flowers from the garden, and as you can imagine at this time of year choice is limited. So I tend to buy a few flowers from the florist and hunt around the garden for the foliage to accompany.
Today is the first Christmas bouquet, I shall try and show you two more at least before the big day. This bouquet is very traditional colours for the festive season. These deep red roses are velvety and luxurious and look fantastic teamed with the dark holly and box leaves, and the grey green berries from our huge ivy.
I arranged them on the three tiered cake stand that I have used here before, you may remember that I displayed summer roses and peonies in the same way last June. It is simple to layer the plates and place a block of florists foam on each.
Voila! Deep reds and greens for you this Sunday …. what colours shall I use next week?
