No Poinsettias for Christmas

christmas flower arrangements

I don’t love poinsettia’s.  I don’t know why, they just seem antiquated to me and remind me of times gone past… but not in a great way.  They can still be done well (a full poinsettia tree would be awesome!), but for a party, you can make a much better option.

I used just a couple of everyday blooms to get this simple, but seasonal look.  Roses and tulips, along with a couple of more seasonal fillers and greens – spruce, red berries, and eucalyptus – look gorgeous together.  With just these five pieces, and the same exact tips I used on my ‘market bunch’ tutorial, you can get a really beautiful arrangement for the holiday that is a little more modern than the norm.

As always, having fresh flowers in my house is a must.  The great part about going the extra mile to put together a custom arrangement is that the blooms bought make more than just one bouquet.  With the flowers I bought, I was able to make a large arrangement for the kitchen (shown here), a small arrangement for the bar, a vase full of tulips for my bedside table, and two bud vases for the bathroom and office. Now, that’s getting my $15 worth!

 

Tell me, do you buy individual blooms to create your own bouquet? Do you think you’ll give it a try now?
