Given in Love

Today I went and picked up all of our flowers for Christmas. I Love to have fresh flowers in the home all year round; but the holidays give me an excuse to "go all out!" I Love to give every room of our home a special floral touch; from a single poinsettia in a small glass bottle next to the sink, to a large gathering of holly, evergreen, leaves, and pinecones on the kitchen table. I also Love grouping a bunch of flowers in the same family together and incorporating a unique canister to hold them all together. The large pop of color and design make such a beautiful statement.

It is hard to choose my absolute favorite flower; since they are all so unique and different. But Poinsettias are on the top of my list! Every year, I look forward to seeing their debut in every supermarket and floral shop. Poinsettias are also known as "The Christmas Flower" and "The Christmas Star." They symbolize good cheer and success and are said to bring wishes of mirth and celebration. I wish they were available all year round! What a wonderful message in a flower given in Love!



I Love putting a group of poinsettia plants together. Our poinsettia plants highlight our folk art piece that displays a beautiful holiday message of Peace, Love, and Joy!




The Beekman Boys know how to do a poinsettia right!
Wonderful idea of using the poinsettia flower as an inspired ornament by holding them in small floral water containers and putting them in the Christmas tree for a gorgeous pop of color!! 

Poinsettias are an inspiration flower with their beautiful color and intricate detail!
