I can't believe that it is already December! Thanks to the climate, winter in (most of) California does not have many limitations, and the local floral variety is really amazing year-round. Since I am one to seek unusual floral varieties, I have become admittedly spoiled by what the SF Flower Mart has (or can acquire). I really think the only other place for me in the world with such great access to floral variety year-round might be the Netherlands. When I saw these red garden roses at the market, I knew I had to have them. So, I combined them with some coxcomb and other fun flowers to create a vibrant winter arrangement.
Flowers: garden rose, coxcomb, anemone, lambs ear, dates, purple beautyberry, and winter greens
Begin with the greens, placing them on one side of the vase.
Add the berries - these beautyberries are my favorite!
Arrange the coxcomb in the middle of the arrangement - they really add a velvety quality to this arrangement.
Now, disperse the anemone throughout the vase.
Add the roses and the lambs ear. Aren't these roses just edible?!
Finally, add the dates, allowing them to drape over the side.
