Rated: Very Easy Arrangement

Camellias are still in bloom in Southern California, but if you are in an area where they are not in bloom, you can make this arrangement with roses or peonies.  Last week's arrangement had ruffly camellias with long golden stamens.  This arrangement uses Nuccio's Bella Rosa Camellias that have symmetrical  leaves with a geometric shape.  

This arrangement is very easy to make and is the perfect size for a centerpiece.  Here are some other arrangements made with camellias:
