A simple fresh bouquet inspired by the offerings in the garden in late autumn and winter is a bouquet with ornamental cabbages.
Over the past three years, when December rolls around, I pop into my local Trader Joe’s and purchase a bundle of ornamental or rose cabbages. For fewer than $6, I then add a few white hydrangeas and a dash of greenery with the silver dollar eucalyptus and for less than a $20 bill I have a winter arrangement that will last for at least a week. Often the cabbages last for two or three weeks and I simply swap out the other bouquet details to maintain the favorite part of the season display.
Enjoyed only once a year, I look forward to welcoming this bouquet every December as it compliments the holiday decor throughout the house which is largely muted with greens and whites and just a touch of gold in the brass candlesticks.
