I'm Phyllis Cambria, the co-owner of Let's talk a little bit about Christmas flower arrangements. Well obviously you are going to find flowers in centerpieces, that's where most people think about Christmas flowers. But there are other places that you would use Christmas flowers. You could decorate your Christmas tree with them or you could get pots of poinsettia plants and line your walkway or your driveway. You could put them in a wreath. You can put them in a dry flower arrangement. You can take a flower, a single bud and add it to your napkin next to your plate, that would add a totally new dimension to your dining table and your Christmas experience. Some flowers you can even use as garnish on foods, but you want to make sure that you're getting edible flowers. And speaking of edible, there are some plants like poinsettias that are very poisonous. So, if you have small children, or if you have pets, what you want to do is take silk or velvet poinsettias and use those in your arrangements. You want to make sure that your plants are safe for your house pets, for your guests, for anyone who has a small child who may come by. But, if you take some artificial flowers and add them with fresh greenery and some fresh flowers, no one will be able to tell that you're using artificial poinsettias, but everyone will be safe. This has been Phyllis Cambria. Thanks so much for watching.
