Real Simple December 2009

Our 5in Silver Mini Trumpet Vase, 4in Silver Trumpet, and 5in Pewter Bud Vase hold prettier poinsettias for a Christmas decor idea in the December 2009 Real Simple: In pots, these ubiquitous holiday plants tend to congregate in a corner (talk about a wallflower). Snip off a single stem, however, and the humble poinsettia perks up. CLIP individual blossoms and tuck them in shiny silver bud vases filled with water... GROUP a few together on a mantel, or let a single one stand on a side table. The poinsettia's "petals" are actually long-lasting leaves; your display should look fresh for at least five days.
