I was at the Sacred Heart Holiday Home Tour this weekend and there were so many amazing florals and garlands. It was pure eye candy. I noticed that many of the homes had cut paperwhites in flower arrangements. It got me thinking about all of the different ways to display these holiday beauties.
These simple flowers look so elegant wrapped in burlap and tied with a silk ribbon.
The flowers shine in an old wooden box.
These paperwhites take center stage on this table planted in a silver bowl
A rustic urn is the perfect complement to the simple white blooms.
Paperwhites are perfection planted in an antique planter. I like how the silk ribbon is pulled up a bit on these. One of the main problems I have with paperwhites is that they tend to grow so tall they lean or fall over. Seems like the ribbon placed up high would keep them in place.
If paperwhites are not your thing, it is always fun to grow amaryllis for a pop of color!
Have you ever grown your own paperwhites at Christmas? Any growing tips? I love to plant them, but sometimes (like this year) I forget and it is too late to have them bloom in time.
