- 3 - 4 tall vases (I use cylindrical ones)
- 2 Calla Lilly per vase (I stretch and coaxed the stems so that they arch past the next vase’s bloom – think of a wattle fence or loose "M" shape)

Greens & Urns Accessorize the Hot Tub

How Glamorous! What a stylish winter garden spa -- and all curated from the garden -- greens and conifers that add a dash of holiday winter fashion...
