My Flower Book (16) : Merry Christmas December 21, 2009

Christmas is coming ! 

  

Although the sunflower does not blossom in winter, its bright yellow color is so gay to warm the cold winter and to decorate the holidays, I chose it for my Christmas decoration this week. The sequined foliage is perfect to give more Christmas atmosphere…

Besides the small Christmas tree, I arranged a another bouquet with floral foam. Red and green are Christmas’s colors too.

 

Merry Christmas !

My flower book (15): Tulips December 7, 2009

On the left is a simple bouquet of orange tulips for home decoration.

 

On the right is a round bouquet of tulips and buttercups to offer at an informal visit.

 

The orange color is cheerful in winter, when it rains a lot in Paris. Although I can’t help from keeping thinking that the tulips come from the hydroculture in Holland, but not a Spring field…
