So every year my company has a big Christmas party, and there’s always a huge raffle of TVs, ipads, Apple TVs, etc. I mean, like, five or six gifts per year. That’s a lot for a small company like ours. And I’ve been there for YEARS and have NEVER won! I’m just not lucky with those things. (Either that or they’re not putting my name in the Santa hat. I might not be on the “nice” list. …)
Anyway, I HAVE managed to walk out with a centerpiece “win” a couple of years, though, and this was one of those years. I thought this one was so pretty. I put it on my buffet, and then realized it needed some “height,” so I put it on top of my mother’s cake stand she gave me from her 1965 wedding gifts. (I love that cake stand!)
I really like how this livens up my dining room this week! Isn’t it purty? What are those crazy red flowers, anyway? Does anyone know? They look sort of tropical. …
Beautiful winter flower arrangement! You’re always a winner in my book, BTW. ; )
That is a beauty. I have no idea what the red flowers are, but you are right they do look tropical. So pretty. Your dish reminds me of my mom, she loved milk glass. I miss her so much, and even more so during the holidays. She was my best friend.
I hope you and your family are enjoying the holiday season and not stressing out too much. I hate that part. I so wish we could go back in time when we put more into spending time together as family and doing things together vs all the crazy shopping and hurrying along like it is now. Old fashioned things to me would be the way to go. I guess I was born too late?? LOL
I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas, I hope it is filled with so much love, laughter and smiles. <3
What a gorgeous bouquet!
Thanks, all! Nothing like fresh flowers in December, huh?
And Phyllis — I can imagine that this time of year might be hard, missing your mom. Especially when you love more “old fashioned” celebrations, spending time with family. I know she’s in your heart at this time of year. Merry Christmas to you, too!
