Merry Christmas!

Today I want to share some traditional Christmas floral designs I have done in the past two weeks. The first one using tulips, pomegranates, and assorted evergreens. In my quest to continue to be more eco-friendly with my design mechanics I used a vintage Dazey floral holder to make this piece instead of floral foam.

These holders are easy to source on Ebay and Etsy, and if you look around thrift and and antique stores locally I think you just might find one. I also used a large one to make the piece below for my parents home. Hemlock, cedar, rhododendron and other assorted evergreens and were collected from the woods, I added some begonia and purple passion vine cut from my mother’s houseplants and my favorite red garden roses “Red Piano”.

    Was glancing through internet for photos/websites on anthurium and found your wonderful website. What a treat! I really enjoy the ikebana but have to comment first on the above displays – just beautiful and festive! I have the same McCoy vases/pots. You’ve inspired me to get them out, dust them off and get creative. Thanks!
