Winter Blooms / by Brooke

I love holiday decorating, and one of my favorite things to do each Christmas season is finding or making a great flower arrangement or plant to add a little unexpected interest. I try to do something that will last at least the whole month of December.

This year I found these amazing Bromeliads at Cactus and Tropicals in Salt Lake City. They are really easy to care for and the bloom will look good for a long time.

Last year I used these little 'Goldcrest' Cypress Trees with clementines and deer moss for a client. I love the lime green and orange together.

Here are some other great ideas for long lasting arrangements.
