I attended a big dinner event a couple of weeks ago and was lucky enough to take home one of the centerpieces. Amazingly, the flowers – roses, hydrangea, red calla lily – have stayed just as beautiful, deepening in color as they are drying out. The beautiful reds and pinks and greens are perfect on my holiday table. I don’t decorate for Christmas in standard reds and greens, but in deep pinks and cranberry accented with soft greens, which works better with my decor. Here, I’ve added some paperwhite bulbs growing in crystal wine glasses and placed all on a pale green glazed ceramic tray. Some added candles and I’m all set!
