Poinsettias to Shine Up To
|December 7, 2010||Posted by Laura Brown under Uncategorized|
There are a few things I look for in a poinsettia to wear for Christmas. One, is the red colour. It has to be bright, cheery and really, sincerely red. The next is size, something a bit too small won’t work for a poinsettia. It wants to be large and glamorous. Beyond that, it needs to actually look like a poinsettia, not a daisy or a chrysanthemum or some anonymous flower. This first poinsettia from Christmas Tree Hill (above) has all of those features. Take a look at the matching ring too. The only thing missing are the green outside leaves and it should be yellow/ green in the centre. But, I love the red on this one so much I can over look the other small things.
This one, from Cat Fancy Gifts, also has matching ear rings. It doesn’t have the same red but it really looks like a poinsettia, better than most of those I looked at. I think most jewelry of flowers is made too rigidly to a pattern than randomly the way nature designs them. This was the best one for the way the poinsettia looks. It looks like a real poinsettia! (They have a really nice holly too).
Uno Alla Volta has this poinsettia and matching earrings too. The design and the colour are great. I like it a lot but I don’t quite love it. Take a look at the poinsettia ring which they also have, not matching this set but very shiny and bright.
I will have to keep looking for my perfect poinsettia. I love online window shopping!
