Poinsettias Are Perfect For Last Minute Perfection
Christmas is just DAYS away and if your house isn't beaming with Christmas brilliance, it's time to get in gear! Christmas poinsettias can instantly turn any space into a festive favorite. Their big, star-shaped blooms bring back many memories of Christmases past. It's no wonder they've become a staple in our holiday celebrations.
Just check out this (above) beautiful Christmas poinsettia with it's massive red blooms. Just imagine one of these beauties decorating your dining room. Choose mini poinsettias for a fantastic Christmas centerpiece. It takes only one to spark the Christmas spirit in all of your holiday visitors, but why not get one for every room in your house!? No matter where your guests wander, Christmas follows! Poinsettias are easy, last-minute Christmas decorations for those less-frequented rooms, and much less expensive than buying an entire Christmas tree with decorations.
If you have a much larger area to decorate, bunch several poinsettia plants together, or ask your local florist to create a unique poinsettia topiary. The giant topiaries above are from the beautiful Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. Christmas poinsettias look fantastic together; just look at how striking the red and white mix is together!
If your Christmas decorations are not the traditional Christmas colors, no worries! Poinsettias come in a wide range of vivid colors. The above is a unique, vintage pink color and would look fantastic with any pink or vintage Christmas decor. Contact your local florist for the best selection of poinsettia flowers. They will have many types you won't see in department stores, and they'll be alive and healthy! (I don't know about you, but every time I see poinsettias in department stores they just look awful! The blooms are falling off and they're about half-dead. Not sure what type of spirit those will put you in, but it's definitely not Christmas!)
If your holiday plans don't include guests at your house, poinsettias still make great Christmas hostess gifts. Stop by your local flower shop on your way to grandmas, or where ever it is you're headed, and pick up a luscious Christmas poinsettia. (To ensure you find the quantity you are looking for, call your florist ahead of time, just to be safe! This close to Christmas, you can't be too careful!)
