A Bounty of Red Camellia Blossoms for a Country Centerpiece

  I must admit that, last year, I had no idea what the beautiful, red blossoms were on the trees outside of our new house. I learned that they are winter, flowering camellia's.

Camellia's are plentiful around our neighborhood this time of year and we are lucky to have two beautiful trees, like this one, to harvest clippings from.

We're lucky that they are so perfect for the decor of our house and they make really long lasting cuttings. They last a week or even more!

A display was then made, for our dining table, using a Home & Garden red floral tablecloth, a pair of  red, grain sack, striped napkins, a vintage, bun foot, cutting board and a brown transferware plate as a base. The white ironstone pitcher and creamer hold a bouquet and single bud for the country centerpiece.

It's another pretty addition and cheerful arrangement for our country kitchen!

   Love, Hugs and Kisses,
and Gucci, too!
