Poinsettias in Vases by Martha's Vineyard Glassworks

I love poinsettias, but let's face it, they can be a little fusty and a little boring. I think I've been jaded by seeing way too many red poinsettias still wrapped in their foil, decorating bank lobbies.

However, poinsettias don't have to be a cliche. Choose some of the mini-poinsettias or an unusual or interesting poinsettia variety and group them or put them in unusual pots.

Another way to give poinsettias a new look is to take cuttings and use them in vases.

These small bud vases, called "Modern Minis," were made by Andrew Magdanz, one of the founders of Martha's Vineyard Glassworks.
