The holidays are always a busy time of hustling and bustling, which is why we think this simple, low-maintenance holiday arrangement from our friend Andrea Brooks is a MUST for any busy entertainer or hostess! Thanks so much for sharing, Andrea!
I love to incorporate fresh greenery into my holiday dÃ©cor but with our crazy Arkansas weather you can’t always depend on it lasting through the holidays. I found this great DIY arrangement that will do just that – mine are over a week old and are still looking fresh and festive! Follow these easy steps to create your own:
How to create the mint julep cup arrangement 1. Cut a piece of green oasis to fit the full size of the cup. It should fit snugly to help the arrangement stay close to the top of the vase/cup.
2. Add water to fully wet the oasis.
3. Add your cedar branches starting from the outer edges (I like to start at the corners and work in). When trimming these pieces you will want to keep the outer ones a little longer to give them some drape. 4. Fill in the middle with shorter cedar pieces, pine and berries. Remember, the more organic it looks the better!
In seconds you have a festive arrangement that will long outlast fresh flowers. This arrangement can be used throughout your home in several different ways; for example, I have placed several in the windowsill in my kitchen and also as cheerful place settings for the head chairs in my dining room. I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season! Andrea Brooks Andrea Brooks Interiors | Facebook
