When I saw coxcomb at my bodega, I got very excited. Its one of my favorite flowers - not only because of its velvety texture but also because its cheap, lasts longer than flowers, has great color and is incredibly easy to arrange. Just smoosh together and voila. To add a little height I added some spray painted branches. Its a shame coxcomb isn't easy to come by because I would totally be rocking this treatment in spades for Christmas if I could.
$6 bucks out of pocket and now I get to enjoy this punch of color for days. Hooray.
