Nice even tones in this one, I like the balance and composition. Not sure if this is something I'd see in a catalog though with the dark background, something lighter may have made it appear more festive.

Love the softness of the lighting.
Christmasy? I suppose this is a Christmas plant.

The lighting, while doing a good job of hiding the background, doesn't do much for the flowers themselves. I'm not an expert on lighting so I don't really have any helpful suggestions, but I think it needs something to add emphasis, maybe having one cluster of flowers brighter or darker than the rest to create a strong focal point to the image.
