This year was challenging as far as creating floral arrangements for our Christmas party. I usually find beautiful red roses at Costco and a nice variety of greenery at Trader Joe’s and throw some beautiful arrangements together.
When I went to buy red roses last week, I couldn’t find them! I did end up buying flowers at Costco, but the roses were primarily white and pink with a few red ones thrown in. I did find an interesting mixed arrangement with a few red roses, the green poms, leucadendron, and greenery.
In our bathrooms, I like to add a small floral arrangement … or even a single rose in a tiny silver vase with a few sprigs of greenery.
And, I like to tuck small arrangements in bookcases, on end tables — any area that could use a touch of color and fresh flowers.
When I hit the antique flea markets and stores like HomeGoods or Marshal’s … I’m always on the lookout for tiny silver containers and white ceramic pitchers. They make great anchors for fresh flowers.
And, my trick that I learned years ago — use Oasis (the green floral foam) for everything — even the tiniest of containers. The end results are so much better and you have flowers that stay put.
