For a change from the standard roses, carnations, and mums featured in many Christmas flower arrangements, consider adding some tropical flowers for an exotic flair. Anthuriums, the red waxy heart-shaped flowers on the left side of this arrangement, are long lasting and festive. Other vibrant tropical flowers for Christmas arrangements include protea
, ginger, and the bird of paradise.
