The holidays need a few things to be complete, including your Christmas tree and all of your beautiful decor. Even if you're not having the usual big feast this year, a gorgeous centerpiece is just the display your table needs. For anyone who doesn't want to spend a lot of money—save that for the gifts—or isn't big into a DIY project, a waxed amaryllis bulb makes for the perfect focal point for your holiday table.

Wax Amaryllises are super easy to grow, and the result is stunning as the bulb blooms a few flowers. They take about four to six weeks to blossom, so you'll want to order them now to have them ready by Christmas. Pair a single bulb with a few other festive items as a centerpiece, or buy a few (maybe with different wax colors) and display them as they come. However you decided to arrange them, your wax Amarylisses are sure to impress.
