all the reasons rose hips are good for you (and any lucky birds that frequent your yard), so I'll just show you a few ways they can become part of your holiday centerpieces. Bonus: red, ripe rose hips have a lovely citrusy smell! • Martha Stewart created this simple, elegant arrangement using just rose hips (at different stages of their development so they are green, orange, and red) and seeded eucalyptus, which has a spicy scent that's perfect for fall and winter. • The French Bouquet of Tulsa did a great round-up of their purple bouquets, including this one featuring rose hips, carnations, seeded eucalyptus, and zinnias. • Floral Artistry of Vermont created this bouquet using rose hips and the near-black callas I love so much, plus roses and dahlias. • Casa Sugar spotted this spare arrangement of rose hips and protea ("Pincushion"). Like the Martha Stewart arrangements, the silver vases add a touch of glam to the wild rose hips.
