Sept. 18, 2016 — It’s (almost) the most wonderful time of the year…yes, planning for Christmas is well underway in garden centres and florist shops across Canada.

Are you preparing to help customers decorate for the yuletide season?

Christmas tree baubles are perfect for making any room more Christmassy, suggest the iBulb marketing team, but have you ever considered Christmas flower bulbs?

As their flowers open to provide colour and fragrance, flower bulbs add a delightful sparkle to homes during the festive season. There are so many kinds and sizes that you can always find just the right ones for your Christmas theme.

White and silver are colours often used at Christmas because this is a winter holiday when ice and snow are so prevalent. Many kinds of flower bulbs in pots are available in white.

Good examples are Ranunculus, hyacinths and tulips. In a nice matching pot accompanied by white ornaments, they make a pretty picture in a shallow container.

LOVELY MOTHER-OF-PEARL

Soft, lustrous tints of mother-of-pearl against white provide a lovely look. Christmas tree baubles and Christmas flower bulbs make a wonderful combination. The magnificent Amaryllis grows up and away in its glass pot. Filling the pot with Christmas tree ornaments lends an extra holidays touch.

GO RED INSTEAD

How about decking the whole house in luscious red to create a festive fashionable look. And the majestic flowers produced by Amaryllis bulbs make the look complete.

Combined with natural materials like pots made of tree bark, they look absolutely wonderful on a wooden serving tray. The pots could also be tied together with decorative red ribbon.

As a finishing touch, place a few red Christmas baubles casually on the serving tray for a luxurious Christmassy look.
