Take time and smell the rosesRoses have been around for millions of years which just prove that roses are not difficult to grow. The Rose is also our National Floral Emblem and the state flower of several states.

If you still have roses in the garden, use them to decorate your home for the holidays.  If your garden has gone to bed, greenhouse-cultivated or florist rose can be used instead.  Two or three pots of red minis grouped together make a bold statement in any room.  An arrangement of red roses amongst different shades of pines on a low container; red tapers with white roses on a bed of pine boughs; blue tapers surrounded by blue-green spruce with yellow roses are all sensational centerpieces.  Here’s a decorating idea for your stairway:

Materials needed:
Fresh or synthetic garland
Red or gold ribbons
Various berries, herbs and greens
Fresh red roses
Floral vials and floral tape

Drape the garland around the railing.  Tie the garland with a ribbon.  Bunch a small cluster of berries, herbs and greens to the garland until it looks full.  Clusters of aucuba leaves are great because of its gold speck on them.  Trim each rose stem to the length of the vial.  Slip it into the tightly capped water-filled floral vial.  Tape with floral tape for added security.  Slip the vials of roses into the garland, wedging them in place.  Add fresh water to the vials daily.
