Beautiful Holiday Centerpiece for Just $10!

This month's Fresh Ten special is 10 alstroemeria for $10. This South American flower is full and showy, perfect for simple vase arrangements. Alstoemeria is known for its longevity, with a vase life of up to two weeks.
For just $10, you can spread your alstroemeria down your Thanksgiving table by placing one stem in 10 bud vases. Or use Hilary's idea in our Fresh Ten film below and make an easy centerpiece with hazelnuts and place a bloom on each napkin ring:

If you're doing a buffet style Thanksgiving, this alstroemeria topiary will be the highlight of the buffet table:
