Nice idea. I do my outside pots with greenery, but will have to do some inside ones too.

A lovely idea, we were at our local wholesale nursery the other day collecting our winter pansies and the greenhouse there had over two thousand Poinsettias, a beautiful sight.

Thank you for a wonderful centerpiece idea! I made 12 for a luncheon and your instructions were easy to follow. The finished centerpieces were lovely and the use of red metallic sinemay (wire mesh) made the centerpieces very professional looking. Could not find cypress boughs in Florida so Scotch Pine and Douglas fir were my choices for the evergreens. Gold flocked berries and the gold ting ting completed the look!

This is a great walk-through of the setup, which I'll be checking out. How can I incorporate some Italian ceramics to these Poinsettia? I would love to see them together but I don't have an idea.

Alice, thanks for your comments on this video. Try some containers like those I found here as your pot, leaving a plastic pot on the poinsettia for ease of watering, etc. These could be decorated using contrasting ribbon and bows or complimentary colours. A little imagination and experimentation will produce stunning results. Have fun with it!

I really appreciate the response and I have checked on kaboodle...this is such help.
