It was seventy degrees out this afternoon. The wind came up and dried the holly from last nights rain. I was ready to trim the Blue Maid Holly for Christmas arrangements. I make "Kissing Balls" for my ceiling fixtures.
Two pink confections, one for the living room and one for the dining room.
The kitchen has a bit of yellow in the decorations so I went with a variegated ribbon. The entry is in silver.
I used sixteen holly stems for each one. Tonight my husband will cut the pine for my big vases. The Holly and the Pine will stay fresh in water until January.
