So here they are in the van. I was pretty excited about getting them home and seeing how my wife integrated them into her holiday decor that she had been working on. There is one key problem with Poinsettias though (aside from pronouncing them) They almost always come in this hideous foil wrapping around the pot!
While in the lobby of a corporate building, or in a business window display this may work ok, it is not really part of our style. I mean I am all for shiny gold, but in a different format entirely.
So I love the plants, but hate how they look, and dont really want to just remove the foil and leave the plain plastic pot either. The good news is that all hope is not lost. We grabbed a roll of wrapping paper that has an old print pattern on it to look like a book or newspaper.
And there you have it. a piece that fits the decor, without breaking the budget!
