This has been a joyful time of creating floral designs for Christmas celebrations. This piece has been embellished with crystals, manzanita branches, and hanging votives. Christmas greens from the garden include variegated osmanthus, sedum, nandina and white pine branches. Other florals include white hydrangea, rose hips, green button mums, cypress, seeded eucalyptus, and Majolica spray roses.
These designs are headed to Peace Presbyterian Church for the International Christmas Dinner tonight. White pine branches, dried crested celosia, holly berries, and variegated osmanthus are all from the garden. Other flowers include seeded eucalyptus, cypress, green Fuji mums, green button mums, and white cushion mums, purple stock and white Majolica roses.
This piece was created for a Christmas Tea last weekend. The holly berries, variegated osmanthus, and yellow cypress are all from the garden. This vintage design also includes rose hips, green Fuji and button mums, red spray roses, green and blue cypress, seeded eucalyptus and fresh Lady apples. The base of the design was decorated with a fresh willow wreath dressed in greens and berries.
