Scattering pretty Christmas flowers around your home is the perfect way to dress up your house for the holidays. One thing that is missing from each of these arrangements is a vase. I love to use what I have laying around instead. An empty tea can or a mason jar are much more interesting to me than the traditional vase. To add a little holiday flair, I put a few fresh cranberries in the water and then snipped away.
You can really use any red and white flowers you like! Hydrangeas happen to be my favorite flower and they are the perfect way to fill up an arrangement! I used red roses, white lilies, and fresh evergreen. These little arrangements are perfect to scatter around, or for a more dramatic statement, placed together on a pretty tray for your coffee table or counter.

I hope your week isn’t too stressful and you are knocking out all of your holiday shopping and preparations! I’m picking up my last presents this morning and will be cooking and cleaning tomorrow! Speaking of cooking, I am baking this Red Velvet cheesecake Vanilla cake this year! It looks decadent and perfect for the holiday. Yum! This Saturday we are taking G and his cousin Lucy to the Teddy Bear tea at the Roosevelt in New Orleans. I cannot wait to see his face with all the lights and decor! This will be my last post for the Christmas season. I hope each and every one of you has a blessed time with your family and children. Thanks so much for your kind words and support throughout the year! XO!
