Poinsettias

What better to add to the festive feel of the Holidays than Poinsettias. And, they were the perfect answer to ..."what can I put on the credenza in the living room this year that would go along with my more natural theme in decorating".



I brought in this basket from the greenhouse, put in some chicken wire for support and added the poinsettias along with some eucalyptus branches...in cooler climes you have evergreens, in California we have eucalyptus. These were scooped up from some tree-trimmers working in the area.


The little bird ornament was made by my daughter at http://loveandlifeatleadora.blogspot.com/ several years ago...I wish she would make some again, they are so cute!


A ribbon and some glass ornaments add just a bit of sparkle


I don't think this credenza has every looked better. What do you think?



Thank you for visiting and...
Merry Christmas

  1. The poinsettias look so pink, rather than red, must be a different variety than we have here.

    I love the bird, I used to put one red cardinal in my Christmas tree at home in Maryland.

    Very nice.

    When we are in So California over the holidays, we were thinking of setting a date to meet for coffee... it will have to be after Christmas Day though...

  8. Hello Adrienne:
    The Poinsettia basket looks wonderfully elegant on the credenza, particularly so backed by the fabulous gilt mirror. The colour of the leaves of this particular variety of Poinsettia is so interesting and really works well with all the other elements in the arrangement. Perfect!!

  11. When we stopped to pick up the eucalyptus from the tree trimmers, they probably thought you were a bit crazy. However, if they saw this beautiful arrangement you've made, I'm sure they would have taken the trimmings themselves! This is a lovely arrangement, both in the photograph and in person.

  18. What a beautiful arrangement!
    I was delighted to finally get my poinsettia that I'd ordered through a school fund raiser. I thought it would never get here!
