It’s the most wonderful time of the year…Yes, Christmas is coming, and it’s time again to enjoy all the fun of decorating our home for the season. Christmas tree baubles are perfect for making any room more Christmassy, but have you ever considered Christmas flower bulbs? As their flowers open to provide color and fragrance, flower bulbs add a delightful sparkle to our homes at Christmas. There are so many kinds and sizes that you can always find just the right ones for your Christmas theme.
White and silver are colors often used at Christmas because this is a winter holiday when ice and snow are so prevalent. Many kinds of ready-potted flower bulbs are available in white. Good examples are ranunculuses, hyacinths and tulips. In a nice matching pot accompanied by white ornaments, they make a pretty picture in a shallow container.
Soft, lustrous tints of mother-of-pearl against white provide a lovely look for Christmas. Christmas tree baubles and Christmas flower bulbs make a wonderful combination. The magnificent Amaryllis grows up and away in its glass pot. Filling the pot with Christmas tree ornaments lends an extra Christmassy touch.
Warm inviting red
At Christmas, it’s time to deck the whole house in luscious red to create a festive fashionable look. And the majestic flowers produced by Amaryllis bulbs make the look complete. Combined with natural materials like pots made of tree bark, they look absolutely wonderful on a wooden serving tray. The pots could also be tied together with decorative red ribbon. As a finishing touch, place a few red Christmas baubles casually on the serving tray for a luxurious Christmassy look.
