Winter Floral Arrangements
After Christmas can be a struggle with how to decorate your home. Winter floral arrangements are just what you need to add a little cheer!
Winter Flower Arrangements
I'd like to that my very talented friend, Amber, from Follow the Yellow Brick Home for organizing such a fun tour this month.
If you are stopping by from Shiplap and Shells then welcome! I absolutely love Kim's home and gardens. She's quite impressive with her gardening skills!
More Winter Decor
I always leave the Christmas season with a little sadness of looking at all the festiveness. I adore all the twinkling lights. On the other hand, I love the idea of packing away all the stuff and getting back to normal.
Things always tend to look a bit bare and boring to me.
We had our Christmas decor up about 7 weeks this year.
Just because Christmas is over does NOT mean that you have to say goodbye to using evergreens in your home.
Evergreens are great to use in your home all winter long. I chose to use them a bit differently. Not in elaborate tablescapes or in garlands.
I like to make small winter flower arrangements with them.
I'm not a florist or have any formal floral training. Just go for it!
I was at Trader Joes the day before and picked up bouquets of white hydrangeas. I chose white because, after all the red and color, I wanted things to feel calming and more winterlike. Each bouquet had 3 stems for a price of $5.99 each. That's pretty reasonable. You get a lot of bang for your buck with hydrangeas. They typically have large blossoms which really help to quickly fill out an arrangement.
I then took a stroll around our yard with my pruning shears and went shopping. Shopping our yard and woods!
The kids gave me a tiny Leyland cypres several years ago. I asked for one. We had rows of them at our old house and I missed not having access to them for the holidays. They are airy and delicate. They really last a long time. It has grown so much!!!! I adore it.
I then clipped some pine, cedar, and luyken laurel.
I start by positioning my hydrangeas in the vessel.
You'll want to cut varying heights for your container like I did for the mantel. I wanted them graduated. Then you simply fill in the empty spaces with varying types of greenery.
The white and green looks so beautiful with the blue and white vase. It stands out nicely against the oil landscape without being bold.
For the silver thrift store urn, I cut my hydrangeas closer to the same height. Since this was on the coffee table I wanted the arrangement lower and more compact. Love these blue and white porcelain balls.
I carried the blue and white theme to the table from the mantel.
That fun little disco ball was actually pried off of my daughter's toy from years ago. It broke and was going to be thrown away, so I acted fast. I use it every winter now.
It's ok to mix metals. Here I have brass with silver.
To add another pop of color to blend with the pillows on the couch, I added a few old books and a small oil painting from eBay.
It's so simple to create winter flower arrangements! I hope you are encouraged to create a few yourself.

Thrift Store Decor Roundups
Here are roundups from the past from The Thrift Store Decor Team!
I love your arrangements! I’ve never thought to mix hydrangeas and winter greens together. Thank you for sharing this. I pinned and will definitely remember this for next year.
I so love hydrangeas and yours look perfect mixed with your evergreens in small bouquets. I think hydrangeas look wonderful every season depending on how you mix them. The blue and white is beautiful combination with the white and green. I always love seeing your beautiful home. Thanks for taking us on a walk around your lovely yard and driveway.
Christy I love how you took cuttings from your area and mixed them in with hydrangeas for some seriously stunning arrangements! I used cuttings from my garden as well, but I didn’t take pictures of the trees and such I got them from – I think I will do that next time. I hope you’re having a great weekend!
Absolutely beautiful Christy! I love the combo of the white hydrangeas with winter greens. How wonderful to have access to some many types of foliage on your property!
The blue pottery is perfect too! I am always eyeballing all the other treasures in your vignettes too. Loving the little gold Florentine box and that tiny flower painting in the styled tray.
Everything looks beautiful for late winter. Thanks for joining the hop!
I love how beautiful the hydrangeas look mixed with the winter greenery. I need to make a quick trip to Trader Joe’s today for hydrangeas. I can’t think of a better way to chase the winter blues than with pretty arrangements like yours! Thanks for the inspiration! Pinning!
Your floral arrangement is so beautiful. I love that you added elements from outdoors. What a great idea.
I absolutely adore the fresh greenery paired with the classic blue and white! I need some of those porceiain balls in my life.
You had me at blue and white and hydrangeas! So pretty…pinned!
Christy I love how you brought the outdoors in! Your arrangement is beautiful! xoxo
Isn’t it amazing how much you can brighten up your home during the winter months with beautiful flowers and greenery? It looks so gorgeous and I’m loving the blue and white, and the disco ball for sure! Pinned.
Foraging in the yard is one of my favorite things to do. I love your beautiful winter arrangements. Gorgeous.
