Christmas at Helen's

Today I made an outdoor arrangement for my friends Helen and Bill and brought over an arrangement for their dining room table - they are having an early Christmas dinner tonight with both of their girls, one soon to be son-in-law and their new granddaughter.

For the piece outside, I wired some small Christmas balls onto twigs and stuck them into the oasis I put right on top of the dirt of the planter.....I also used ilex berries, cedar boughs, seeded eucalyptus, candy cane carnations and varigated greens.

For the other pieces, I used white hydrangeas, red roses, red and white tulips with the same greens.
