Austin, Texas-based floral designer Elizabeth Lewis reimagines Christmas bouquets with bolder colors and shapelier silhouettes.

Dark and Dramatic

The Materials: Coleus foliage + bush ivy + artichokes + pomegranates + red spray roses + hellebores

The Vase: An earthy dough bowl

Staying Power: Three days

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

 

Cluster artichokes and pomegranates in odd-numbered groups of three or more. Place most of the weighty stems low within the arrangement. Fill in holes with spray roses and hellebores.

The Vase: A vintage pedestal Champagne bucket
