Need holiday flower ideas? Check out these three festive options.
Create a serene winter tableau with this simple arrangement: birch bark wrapped around glass cylinders filled with plants found easily in the winter. Trimmings from the holiday tree and scented geranium leaves snipped from a houseplant accentuate the amaryllis blooms.
Cut birch bark to fit around 3 cylindrical glass vases of various sizes, adding an inch to the circumference. Secure bark with knotted twine.
Cut stems to different lengths, and arrange amaryllis, boughs and leaves asymmetrically.
Stagger vases and surround them with boxwood and pinecones.
