Some of the stalks were starting to bend, so I tied a little bit of nubby twine around them.
I've since learned that these will grow in just about anything, that you don't even need dirt! I'm not sure how long the blooms will last; when I planted them I didn't think they would grow and bloom as fast as they have! I wanted them to be ready for our party on the 18th, but that's a week away and I don't know if they will last that long. I'm sure all you smarter people in blogland out there might know??
I also remembered that I had bought a vintage table runner last spring that I thought would look pretty on the sideboard at Christmas time, but wouldn't you know it, I had forgotten about it until just the other day when I was putting away linens and I spotted it with the place mats. I must have been momentarily high from my vintage-linen-gluttony-spending-spree last spring and put it in the wrong place.
I think the red roses are very festive, even if not exactly 'Christmas-y'.
Thanks for stopping by! I'll be joining Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show & Tell Friday
