Works for me.

White Amaryllis also look great and would be available at that time

@minted:  You could add branches spray paiinted white or silver. Just poke them into the pot.

I would cover up the moss with white stones.

Depending on the container the orchid comes in, you could choose to slip it into a cachepot.

I had orchids for my wedding in December.  If they looked tropical, it didn’t occur to me.

Anyway, I think it will be fine, but as I did something similar, I am hardly unbiased.

This is a modern take on orchid centerpieces. White branches are placed horizontally and orchid blooms woven in. It doesn’t have to be on such a grand scale.

@minted:  Milk glass just doesn’t say modern to me.

@minted:  I am totally for using what you love! I see nothing wrong with using them!

If you wanted too you could always throw a little greenery into the bouquet which gives it more of a wintery type feel

 

 

You could use fillers like in this bouquet below to give it more of that wintery vibe

 

 

You can see orchids in these centerpieces and to me they look give the a bit of a winter wonderland with the bling and feathers on the right so I think you are safe to use them! They are a beautiful flower so go for it!
