Winter Inspiration by Randy McManus Designs

Thursday, December 11th, 2008

Southern elegance is what Randy McManus’s gorgeous creations bring to mind!

Our very talented member florist in Greensboro, North Carolina was featured in the “Entertaining” section of this winter’s edition of Southern Accents. Randy McManus Designs has a knack for creating holiday arrangements that are fun and festive, but still remain elegant and understated. Highly textural, vibrant centerpieces feature winter flowers like amaryllis, Christmas bush, roses, lilies, and other seasonal accents like artichokes, berries, pomegranates and crab apples. His natural, just-gathered-from-the-garden aesthetic is a refreshing take on your typical holiday centerpiece.

And in answer to your cookie cutter Christmas wreath, check out this gorgeous Fraser fir version – hand-decorated with berries, dried mushrooms, monkey pods, dipped pine cones, and accented with gold and burgundy ribbon.
