Tradition with Style

by Ardith Beveridge, Tastemaker in Residence

The floral design recipe below can be converted to any color flower you might choose to add a touch of light and pizzaz to your table. I'd love to see your creations, so send me a photo!

1 Design Ring—three sizes
Candle holders
Pine cones
Large flowers
Winter greens


  1. Submerge the floral foam (Oasis) in water and keep it wet
  2. Place large items in the foam first, pine cones, large flowers, ribbons, candle holders
  3. Add a variety of winter greens around the inside and outside of the foam, additional on the top
  4. Next, add the flowers that are a little larger to fill in the spaces with more foliages
  5. Finish with accent flowers
  6. Check water source and water daily with fresh clean unsalted water with flower food.

Designer’s Note - You can use a center candle in a vase or candle holders and tapered candles
