A tribute to the star of Christmas
About this time last year, I made a small tribute to the Christmas flower Poinsettia. Also known as the Christmas star. I’m repeating it this year, as I have been inspired by the beautiful flower once again. If you scroll down and see these photos you might understand why?
The Eckmann style
The photos are from a beautiful event by Stars for Europe, Floradania Marketing and Eckmann Studio, in the Hercules Pavilion in Copenhagen couple of weeks ago. An event I was SO sorry to miss! Sometimes Copenhagen is too far away (I live in the opposite end of Denmark) and there are some (many…) events and happenings I have to turn down. But luckily I can get inspired by the photos, too. Once again I’m impressed by the work of Anette Eckmann and her crew. I mean, look at this! I wrote last year that the Poinsettia never had looked better, and I have to write it one more time this year. Beautiful settings and stylings – wow!
Decorations with Poinsettia
Actually I don’t want to write so much, but instead let the photos talk for themselves. But I want to give you a couple of words on how to use the Poinsettia in you Christmas decorations. The thing is, that the Poinsettia can be used in so many other ways than standing in a flowerpot. It can also be used as a cut-of-flower in you Christmas decorations. Just remember to burn the end so the flower stops bleeding. Without water the flower will stay fine for some hours and if you put it in water the flower will stay fine for up to two weeks. I particularly love the fine decorations hanging in the windows – lovely right?
Poinsettia on the Christmas tree
Why not also use the Poinsettia on the Christmas tree? Cut it off, burn the end and but it in the small plastic bottles typically used for roses, and then hang them on the Christmas tree. Doesn’t it look nice with a blooming Christmas tree? I think I will try it out this year – would look smashing!
Well, I don’t have that much more to say, other than just enjoy the photos and get just as inspired as I did.
Enjoy your week and the last days of November!
