With Christmas on the immediate horizon I knew I had to get with it or give it up.
I stopped by my favorite flower purveyor, Safeway grocery store, and picked up 3 dozen white roses for $27 and change.
I hurried home and brought in the magnolia leaves, holly, pine boughs, and pine cones that had been piling up on the porch waiting for me to create some holiday arrangements.
First I started making some simple sprays for our exterior doors.
Even the Cottage got in the act.
I also made a spray for the porch door with a red feather cardinal in a little nest and a glittery gold cross.
The side porch is still wants to be decluttered but I can’t resist the urge to give it some Christmas style.
I have plenty of greens remaining to spread around the house on the mantel, with the roses, and on the dining room table.
Do you arrange your own flowers and greens?
