The Anthuriums are sprayed gold and are placed inside test tubes with water. The other plant material is dried and sprayed.

Thank you Dianne and Zany.
Thinking about it, Carnations would have been a better choice in the blue tree, they last longer.

Hope to see some Christmas arrangements soon!

I hope to see some more as well! I really like the gold spray, that is just an ideal arrangement for the holiday. What else are you making?
All of my decorations are ones I have bought through the Petals catalog and I just got a few out today since we are going away.

Now keep in mind that these are all purchased from Petals catalog. We aren't getting a tree this year so I just plugged in the little rosebud tree. I love a real tree and we usually cut one ourselves, but never got around to it this year.

Thank you Candee! Love the rosebud tree, it's very unusual and the matching mantle piece arrangement co-ordinates perfectly!... Pretty decorations, sweet as candy!

Not sure what I'm making next, maybe I'll start the Aspidistra Christmas tree!

Usually by the 15th of January they are down... I am afraid this year they might be up longer. I am taking photos of all my crafts trying to get them organized for later disposal of some and it looks like is going to be a long extended holiday doing that! We have always left the Christmas tree up for the New Years day parties in the past.

I am game for ideas for Christmas all the time. I think Christmas and the Fall holidays are the best for getting creative!

I love bears! These are wooden cut outs a neighbor of mine gave us...I have used them in a number of holiday settings including a deorated pony wagon we did for a Christmas parade on year.

...for next year I plan to make some new Teddybear wreaths and ornaments...God willing and time allows! Was hoping to do the pink (pank) and blue thing with silkflowers for newborn baby wreaths as well as a few for Christmas!!
