BOUQUET

This winter inspired bouquet is created from a mix of Amaryllis and light textured elements for a spin on the traditional Christmas arrangement. Amaryllis is a very popular flower for the Christmas season; using them in the peach tone creates a light and unique feel. The wool wrapped stems create a soft texture to finish off the overall winter theme of the bouquet. Amaryllis is in available winter and spring while dahlia’s peak season is summer through early winter.

CARE

This bouquet is created from show stopping amaryllis stems surrounding a bouquet holder. The floral foam allows the dahlias, hypericum berries and gypsophila to have a water source and stay fresh all day long. Dahlias are very sensitive to lack of water and are best kept in a bouquet holder or directly placed in a small amount of water. Amaryllis is very delicate and it is best to touch them as little as possible.
