What flowers do you think of in December? There are centerpieces for celebrating Christmas, traditionally in reds and greens. And, there are arrangements celebrating Chanukah and the winter season, and at FlowersFlowers, we often make those with white flowers along with gray and silver accents.
There are also weddings in December! We had two December weddings, both using whites and reds as their wedding colors. Here are two beautiful photos taken by Maggie Rife from one of our weddings.
Just think of what January, and a new year, will bring!
When the temperatures are in the single digits here in the Chicago area, and there’s snow and ice everywhere outdoors, it’s time to focus on the indoor decor!
You can have a beautiful winter arrangement of magnolia, pine, cedar, berries, and varieties of eucalyptus to bring life into your home.
For a more traditional Christmas holiday decor, consider tradition with a contemporary twist by having your arrangement in a glass vase. This arrangement is red and white roses, ginestra, winterberry, lilies, and cedar, designed in a clear glass square vase with a wide ribbon wrapped around the vase.
Another option to consider is a winter arrangement of whites and blues, shown here with blue thistle, white ranunculus, anemones, silver/grey berzilia, and dusty miller.
Whether it’s a single stem or a larger arrangement, always bring some flowers in to warm up your home.
The bad news is that the flowers and plants have died, and the leaves have fallen. 🙁
The good news is that you can decorate outside your home, and it will last all winter! 🙂
FlowersFlowers has greens (magnolia, pine, cedar), winterberry, and dogwood, along with wreaths for your door. This is one of the the pair of urns we decorated for one of the beautiful homes here in Evanston.
Here’s what the outside of our shop looks like as we approach the month of December (makes you want to come in, right?)…
