I LOVE X-mas traditions and this is what I choose for the first advent weekend.
Hyacinth, green moss and white&black stones and quail eggs (emptied)
Oranges pinned with cloves (with or without ribbons) and apples.
LOVE the easy way
Wooden trays that flowershops keep make for a perfect arrangement. Fill with hyacinth and green moss. Add christmas deco on top for a table setting with the right feel.
A heart from branches with one or two ornaments.
Large cinamon and more oranges with cloves tied with black ribbons.
Apples painted with egg whites and powdered with icing suger
makes the apples look like the just came in from a snowy tree.
The scent of hyacinth is Christmas to me.
A small X mas tree made from branches of pine
glued with a glue gun to a paper towel roll
The scent of cloves mixed with oranges makes X-mas.
