In A Vase Monday ( ? )

So I asked husband to pick up some flowers at the produce store. He came home with 2 small bundles at a cost of $8.00, one had yucky green daisies and other ok flowers , but the other bunch worked well for a simple Christmassy arrangement.

Euonymus clippings were used ( we have 5 shrubs) and the carnations and unknown red flowers he brought home.  The berries are starting to turn red and the unknown flowers are opening making this a cheerful addition to our kitchen.

  1. You will know not to ask him to repeat that task! These blooms though, are lovely - they look a little like godetia but with imported flowers who knows what wil be available from our supermarkets these days. They make an effective Christmassy arrangement in this round bowl,along with your greenery

  2. So Christmassy! Husbands definitely have their uses... :o)

  3. The Euonymous clippings do a great job of highlighting the red flowers. I think the unknown red flowers are Godetia (Clarkia amoena).

  4. Those are godetia, I believe. They look great with the euonymus!

  5. Thanks all. Looked up Godetia (Clarkia amoena) and wondering if it may be suitable for my garden.

  6. Your unknown blooms look lovely with the Euonymus clippings, Patsi. Very Christmassy. Wishing you a Merry Christmas! P. x

  7. Wow, this really turned out nice! Sometimes you just need a bouquet to make you smile.

  8. Hi Patsi, your little bouquet is very lovely! I really like your addition of Euonymus clippings to the flowers. I learn more and more that filler green is as important as the flowers itself to create a successful bouquet.
    Wishing you a happy and healthy New Year 2017!
    Warm regards,

  9. Happy New Year, Patsi! Best wishes for all good things in 2017!
