Vintage brooches and jewellery can be taken apart and re_designed and worked into a unique hair flower design to match your theme and outfit. Look for small vintage Marcasite clip earrings as these can add depth to the design and surround these with silk or lace and you have a unique yet very cost effective bridal hair flower. Wax flowers are going to be making a statement in 2013 we think. Vintage wax flowers are not always easy to come by but can be a really quirky alternative to your usual bridal headdress ideas.
You could create an arrangement for any size vase, the larger the vase, the more flowers and greens to use. For Christmas time, use red, white and maybe even green flowers (like green button mums). Also choose from a variety of greens and evergreens out there. Accent a red rose in a bud vase with some baby's breath and cedar. Deep red alstroemeria are especially beautiful. There are many other flowers that would be perfect to use for Christmas arrangements, the link below will take you to a complete list of flowers, foliage, and evergreens for Christmas floral design.
