Winter Florals

Flowers and other plants are an important—if not entirely intuitive—part of a lot of décor that pops up around the holidays. Lauren Mathis, marketing and communications manager of Woodbury’s Woodlane Flowers, shares some tips to prepare and care for your winter floral creations.

“Most people think that holiday/winter arrangements need to be green and red, but white flowers arranged with winter greens make for an elegant winter arrangement,” Mathis says.

Fresh Beauty

During the holiday season, your home likely smells of fresh-baked cookies and pine needles—why not add one more lovely smell to the mix? Consider decorating your home and tree with fresh-cut flowers. We spoke with a local florist for some tips on beautifying your home with fresh or even permanent flowers.
