Elegant Holiday Arrangement
Add texture with pine boughs for a festive seasonal arrangement.
A silver vase adds sparkle to this modern country bouquet. To create the same arrangement, you'll need pine boughs (white or red pine are good choices, or try cedar for an aromatic twist), white roses, twigs, and floral foam, all of which should be available at your local nursery or florist. Choose a deep vase or container to prevent toppling, and use floral foam to anchor each bough and flower as you place it.
To begin, create a base for the arrangement using the pine boughs to create a ring around the container. Ensure all foliage below the waterline is stripped to prevent rot, which will shorten the life of your arrangement. Fill in the centre with roses, again stripping foliage below the waterline, until you have achieved a 'full' effect. Insert twigs in the very centre for added height.
