For the love of flowers…

It’s the best time of the year, I love the festive atmosphere of December.  Everything is dressed in red, the lively energetic color.

Throughout this month, the traditional Christmas flowering plants Poinsettia are found everywhere.  I picked up one from the flower shop and wrapped the pot with green paper, bought from a craft shop.  It gives a different look.   I used a golden ribbon around the green paper to add an extra color.  Then, I put it on a red rug to complete the festive look.  It’s warm enough for winter time!

When we talk about flowers, it’s important to use greenery as it adds texture and movement.  For the color scheme, red is the complementary color of green.  So pairing red and green is good to get a pretty look and to catch the eyes with a mix and match textures. Most of us have plants in our homes.  It might be randomly set in any place in the room.  I gathered some plants I have at home with Poinsettia flower.  Little details can make difference!

In a corner in the living room, I chose a table to set the flowers.  I put both of Poinsettia and greenery in red tins.  I had many ideas to play with the red and green colors.  I put a green craft paper on the table and arranged the flower tins on it. I also covered the table with a red fabric sheet and combined the greenery.

I believe that the balance of the flowers arrangement is very important to get a great result.  It’s not necessary to make a symmetrical arrangement.  The best is to see the flowers beautiful from different angles.

Flowers bring life and color to home!

    Lovely! When I was on my honeymoon in the early ’80s, I bought a poinsettia to take home to my mother – I had never heard of them before. The lady in the florist called it a ‘pointsetter’ and when my mother heard me pronounce it that way, she was horrified!
