Poinsettias As Cut Flowers?

I never knew that you could use Poinsettias as cut flowers.  Thanks to SouthernLiving.com, now I do!  They recommend searing the ends of your stems with a flame to prevent drooping.  Poinsettias contain a sap and the searing prevents this sap from dripping out.  Here are their detailed instructions. 

Here are some great ideas for displaying your cut Poinsettias:

This first one is my favorite!  I love how they used the bright green colors for a twist on the traditional red and green.  These could also be used for your New Year's party decorations.

The traditional red is also beautiful.  I love the frosted and clear decorations.

This idea is great because you can use containers you probably already have like a trifle dish and candle holder.
