I love fresh flowers any time of year, and yet in winter, I crave them even more. Christmas time is no exception. They look lovely, smell wonderful, and add cheer to any room. I bought some fresh flowers and greenery last week to decorate with. They added the perfect touch to the festivity for my dining room, living room, and kitchen. We didn't put up a tree this year, because we will be spending Christmas with our daughters, but we did want a bit of that beautiful smell of Christmas and the cheery-ness of the season to enjoy. These did the trick. I bought a couple bags of greenery at the florist, that were full of Fur and Pine sprigs and small branch cuttings, of various winter type plants. It smelled just like a fresh cut Christmas tree throughout the house. I also picked up a variety of white and red flowers; the roses were as they always are in my heart "the Lovely Lady" of them all.
I don't have a lot of vases; going casual works just fine for me, so I improvised by using a few small vases and jars and filling as many as possible around the house.. with the main focus still being the dining room table. I started with the greenery, and added in flowers informally arranged until all had run out The informal arrangements work well with our cowboy type of decor, adding just enough festivity to enjoy in the bright and pretty daylight to dusky evening candlelight.
Oh, and if you are interested in online flowers, here is a link that I like: BloomNation, an online flower delivery service.
I pray blessings for you all this Christmas Season, and may your house be full of good cheer.
