Christmas is a wonderful and magical time of the year. It lands annually on December 25th. Christmas is eagerly awaited and anticipated by a wide variety of people. It’s a great holiday for enjoying quality time with family and friends. Rocking around the Christmas tree, kissing under the mistletoe, sipping Egg Nog and singing Christmas carols. It’s a time to decorate your homes in bright lights, filling the interior with red, green and white for a most welcoming Christmas cheer.
Some great blooms for sprucing up your holiday cheer:
These cherry red and deep green beauties are the most recognizable Christmas flower, even though poinsettias are actually plants. While their bright leaves look like flower petals, poinsettias are the most popular potted plant of the season. Stick with red or put a twist on tradition with a white poinsettia. Even better, display both red and white together for layers of festive florals.
- Red and White Roses
You may not immediately think red roses for Christmas but they are actually a festive flower that brightens the holiday season. The red rose traditionally means love, but some believe it represents the blood of Christ during the Christmas season. Red roses paired with pine-cones and ribbons give off a chic and rustic vibe. White roses symbolize purity and peace, adding a gentle touch of winter elegance to your holiday decor. Florists use white roses to create winter wonderland inspired arrangements.
