|I used the heavy green and red onyx vase, which doesn't hold water well. The succulent cuttings don't need water and, after seeing Leucadendron used to create wreaths at an Orange County garden center earlier this month, I decided to test its staying power in a dry vase.|
|Back view: I did use water-filled floral tubes to hold the Coprosma and berries I included|
|Top view: The red flower-like stems of Leucadendron 'Safari Sunset' and 'Blush' ended up taking center stage away from the succulents|
I didn't create a second vase this week. I'm holding aside more of the blooming Hippeastrum I featured two weeks ago to create an arrangement for a holiday gathering this coming Saturday. This week's new arrangement replaced the last vase I created with the same Amaryllis, while last week's purple mix moved to the kitchen island when Christmas decorations filled the front entry.
