Top Your Mantel with Winter Blooms
A collection of fluted vases, julep cups, and chalices makes it easy to display (and replace) choice blooms throughout the season. The foliage base will take you well past New Year's; and the flowers will last five days. To creat this look, begin with a base of silver artificial garland. Then tuck in layers of two kinds of fresh eucalyptus (silver dollar and seeded), as well as dusty miller placed in water tubes. Add silver brunia, white ranunculus, star of Bethlehem, 'Sahara' roses, eucalyptus pods, succulents, and snowberries to vases and along the mantel.
