Hope everyone is having a great weekend! Here’s a little project that literally took minutes to create (minus battling the grocery store crowds).
Carve out a cabbage, put a bit of water in the carved out hole, then insert some grocery store flowers, like these Alstroemeria, commonly called the Peruvian Lily.
Who says cabbage is just for coleslaw.

How’bout a quick and simple holiday flower arrangement how-to? Okay.
- Go to grocery store.
- Avoid crabby grocery folk.
- Pick up flowers of choice. I chose roses; hypericum berries; hydrangea; gerber daises; alstroemeria; and asian pears.
- A round vase (okay vase people why the need for so many sticky labels…enough already!)
Place four rows of rubber bands around your vase. Stick with me folks.
Now, using small sprigs of pines (I chose arborvitae) insert the sprigs under the bottom row of rubber bands.
Continue inserting the sprigs of pines around the vase then start on the next row, and the next until…
To conceal the rubber band at the bottom of the vase, I added a couple rows of twine. Okay, you’re almost done. Add some water, your flowers and you’ve got one unique holiday centerpiece! The asian pears were added last by inserting food-grade skewers into the pears then I placed the pears into the arrangement.
Happy Sunday and Happy Holidays!
