We’re taking a few days off at Polka Dot Bride so we’ll be refreshed and renewed for all of the exciting things we have lined up for you in 2010! There’s no reason to leave you empty handed though, so we’ve compiled a few entries full of great reads we know you’ll enjoy!
Check back every day this week and we will be back on the 4th of January with our regular scheduled programming!
From our hearts to yours, wishing you and your family a very merry & safe festive season!

This spectacular plant is a shrub or a small tree. In Spring its true flowers appear – these are a creamy white and fairly small. As the flowers are pollinated, the pinky red bracts emerge holding a seed.
The combination of the pinky red bracts and creamy flowers in profusion amongst dull green leaves is a sight that is breath taking. Imagine armfuls of Christmas bush adding a cloud of colour to your tables. Or use them in large containers to line an entrance or aisle.
These flowers would enhance a colour scheme based on browns, creams, ivories and whites, or match the colour of the flower to a fabric for bridesmaids dresses, table runners, invitations or bridal shoes.
