Wit and Whimsy: Christmas Floral Arrangements

Since I'm going with a fresh greenery/candle theme this year, I searched for some inspiration for Christmas foral arrangements on Pinterest.  Here are three of my favorites:


Got to *love* the woodland theme with the bark vase!



I love this combination of amaryllis and magnolia leaves (I'm a Southern girl after all)!



The silver enhances the paper whites and dusty miller leaves.


I will post more of our fresh greenery and floral Christmas decor later.  I'm waiting because I want it to be fresh for Christmas.  Do you like to decorate using fresh greenery?

Until next time...

Blessings!
Ricki Jill

  4. I love fresh greenery. Very simple is fine with me even if it is just a bunch of white daisies or baby's breath. Lately, I've been cutting fronds off my ferns that are still faithfully hanging on since summer. They are so pretty sticking out of a blue jar. :)

  7. I decided I'm totally getting a couple poinsettias this year. I don't really have the room for them, but I'm going to find room.

  11. Hi Ricki Jill, three beautiful ideas here all equally lovely. Nothing as wonderful at Christmas than fresh fragrant greens and bright floral arrangements. I'm sure whatever you do will be lovely. We decided to go with fresh fir wreathes for the windows this year, left the artificial wreathes in the attic! Hope you have a great weekend. Enjoy the concert..........and Roll Tide!!!!!

  14. I like the silver one - it looks like a winter wonderland. I always go with the red and green traditional decor, but I've always wanted to try a silver and white winter theme. I think it's lovely.
