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.
