Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share an arrangement using materials collected from our gardens.

In A Vase On Monday – Yuletide Greetings

With limited bloom options this week I again selected the Yuletide camellia. Despite very cold temperatures of late freshly opened buds were easy to find.

I was in search of something diminutive so I could use a new vase, a recent gift from my friend Chris.

Standing approximately 2 inches tall this runner vase is composed of three bottles decoratively wired together.

The blue glass adds to the charm of the vase.

A holiday tea towel, several sprigs of rosemary and small candles lend a seasonal touch to this week’s vignette.

    I have recently seen Yuletide advertised for sale here and having seen yours and other’s blooms it is something I am considering – what wonderful flowers for this time of year. And such a lovely little vase too – with time and patience that is a nice little project to do if one had access to the right kind of bottles. Such a joyous vase today, Susie – thank you!

      The vase does look “approachable” as a project if one were so inclined. I think it’s so cute. Perhaps we’ll both be sharing Yuletide next year Cathy!

    What a happy seasonal still life, Susie, with these pretty three sisters all lined up (Yuletide is such a star plant!). Have a fab christmas, looking forward to your creations in 2018 🙂

    ‘Yuletide’ as always is beautiful but I love that runner vase and the charming tea towel, so perfect for a gardener. I hope you’re enjoying the holidays despite the weather, Susie.

      Isn’t that a sweet little vase? I adore it. The weather turned fairly mild today so it was pleasant. We had a few pretty stiff, cold mornings over the weekend.

    A beautiful festive vignette! I love the embroidered cloth with garden clippers and the shiny red votives matching the Yuletide camellias are perfect. Have a great week ahead, Susie – enjoy!
