Christmas is a great time to make your home look festive especially with Suzie the cat helping. Water beads are a simple way to add color to your floral arrangements. Red, green and white are the colors I most frequently use for the Christmas holidays, but using a blue with silver or white flowers is very elegant.
Water beads are used as a vase filler to hide or cover the stems of your flowers plus add color. Use them with fresh or artificial flowers.
See my post on what are water beads to help you if you haven’t used these water beads before.
Remember, water beads can be reused. I prefer to put them into a plastic container or a Ziploc baggie. But you can let them dry out and then rehydrate them. Save the red and white water beads for our Valentine’s Day arrangement and the green will be perfect for St Patrick’s Day.
