Flowers for Christmas
Photography by Geoff Hedley
Christmas is a great time of the year to show off flowers with all your seasonal decorations. Just ensure that the colours all match so they enhance each other beautifully.
White looks great with silver and red. The choice of cut flowers at this time of year is endless. Flickering candles set them off perfectly and create an ambience.
The party bucket
A thick length of oasis has been hung on this party bucket (photo above). A good choice of flowers for these are chrysanthemums, as they have firm stems and are quite economical.
This old soft-drink box is perfect for using old mineral water bottles and filling them with flowers. It's also a good way for showing a few flowers off. Drinking glasses also make a good choice.
Here, the same party bucket is dressed with peonies, freesias, and New Zealand lily of the valley.
Peonies as seen in the bottle image always make any arrangement special. Simple but stunning!
