Before you go out and buy new objects to decorate look at what you have with a creative eye. There are so many possibilities. I hope this collection gives you ideas of your own.
I've always loved cream coloured poinsettias. As you near Christmas they often go on sale and the longer you wait the less you'll pay. If your deal looks a little bedraggled this is the perfect solution. Cut the blooms and arrange separately in bottles or clear glass vases. Perfect.
|Amaryllis and candles|
Keep your display simple and repetitive. Amaryllis is the flower of choice here but carnations are relatively inexpensive and last forever.
|Green ornaments on stacked cake plates|
Consider stacking several cake plates of varying sizes to make an arrangement similar to this one.

Simple white candles of varying heights, oranges and greenery.
