A bit of Christmas at my House

Cyclamen is one of my all time favorite flowers.  I love putting red ones in our planters at the front door during this season.  I'm running behind this year on all things holiday related, but I did do this little bit yesterday.  These candleholders were an item I ordered from my blue and white porcelain source as I was considering offering them in my store.  When they arrived, I wasn't enthralled.  I think I must have been very tired and lacking imagination because I came upon them at home recently, and realized that if I put some greenery/holly/berries they'd look great.  Here's my attempt.  I put them with my cyclamen on the breakfast table to see what I thought.

Then, I went to the backyard and cut some boxwood.  Here's one on the mantle in our den.

Here are a pair with holly and berries on the same mantel.  What do you think?  I really like them very much.  Combining blue and white with Christmas decor has always been a favorite of mine.  I also think that these could be pretty with any greenery and lots of different flowers.  I wish I had offered them in my store.  I asked my source about stock and there are only three pairs left.  If you're interested in a pair email me.  When there's more stock available I'll definitely add them.  I'll want at least one more pair for myself!  I'll share more of what I do for Christmas around the house soon.

I love the greenery in your blue and white. Blue and white looks great every season and I will probably be using mine for Xmas too.

I love those, you should definitely add them when they are back in stock. Cyclamens grow outdoors in California. Love them.

Jennifer,
I love the candlesticks with the holly and boxwood. So attractive. They look so nice on your mantel too. I think I must have a pair! I too love red with the blue and white.

Your decorations are beautiful. I also love cyclamen. I recently bought a white flowered variety, at the grocery store of all places, but it has the most beautiful leaves - they are very dark green with white veining and an almost white shadow through the middles. And I absolutely love boxwood.
All best,
Phyllis
