This year I am in love with poinsettias!
Last year, I did a post called Crazy about Cranberries, because I love to decorate with cranberries too. If you missed it, click on the picture for lots of inspirational decorating ideas.
But this year, it’s poinsettias for me!
One reason I just love them so much is because they are red. If you have been reading my blog for any time at all, you will know I love red.
Red makes me happy.
And Christmas is not Christmas without a lot of RED in my home!
My husband bought me a beautiful, big poinsettia for 99 cents at Lowe’s on Black Friday.
It sat on our kitchen table for a couple of weeks, until I decided to decorate with it differently.
Mainly, because I saw this picture in Country Living Magazine…
See the individual poinsettias in little glass bottles?
I knew I wanted to try this!
The boys didn’t have school on Monday because of snow, but that didn’t stop me from getting to Goodwill! :)
We actually went to a matinee, and when it was over, the boys asked me if we could go to GW. Love them! Of course, I gave in. :)
I was going to start looking for little clear glass bottles so I could make a vignette like the picture above.
You would not believe my surprise when I walked over to the shelves at GW and saw three little glass bottles sitting together. They were absolutely perfect!!! And only 50 cents a piece. I scooped them up, and I might have yelled, “woohoo” out loud…maybe….
I loved that they were all different shapes and sizes!
I also got this little bottle for a dollar too.
When I got home, I cut branches off of my beautiful poinsettia, and place them in the water-filled bottles.
