Holiday Ideas

An article appeared in the December 1999 issue of Country Living magazine focusing on an entreppreneur, named Rebecca Cole. The photos were by William P. Steele. For years she had been going to flea markets or anywhere she could find old pieces that could be used as containers for her flower arranements. As of 1999, she was seeing people by appointment only.

Her tips are tried and true and still hold up today. I thought I would share them with you.

  + 18 roses fill a clay jardiniere, above, more lushly than the usual 12 and a promise of a white Christmas with or without snow.

+ Put holiday bouquets in enamalware milk jugs filled with any type of long-stemmed flower.

+ Give white flowers - tulips or paper-whites which compliment any holiday color scheme. Prechill and plant the bulbs, or present them unplanted in a beautiful pot or bowl.
