3 Winter Floral Arrangements With Staying Power
Play With A Muted Palette
Go beyond poinsettias this season with an arrangement of dusty miller and cut amaryllis tucked into a ginger jar. Often used separately for Christmas arrangements, these flowers look fresh when combined. The silvery foliage has a cool, frosty appearance while orange blooms bring warmth and impact.
Build Drama With Tall Sculptural Branches
Arranged en masse, rose hip branches create a striking silhouette in your front hall. The delicate green stems and small red berries are festive without being overly Christmassy, and will look attractive well into the new year. Be sure to choose a sturdy vase, like this marble one, to best support leaning branches.
Add Layers Of Texture With Long-Lasting Greenery
During party season, it’s common to put floral arrangements in the front hall and on the dining table. But what about your bar area? Here, feathery maidenhair and asparagus ferns are planted amongst moss, proving that gorgeous greenery can stand on its own, sans flowers. Potted in a ceramic bowl, this arrangement is a stylish alternative to a bouquet, making it a perfect hostess gift.
