It’s not quite Thanksgiving, but we know many of you are already planning (or have started) decorating for Christmas! We don’t blame you. It’s a beautiful time of year and we love to enjoy it as long as possible, which is why we are providing you with ways to incorporate Christmas flowers into your holiday decor!
Christmas Flowers for Holiday Decor
Even if you live in a cold climate, your local florist still has access to beautiful and affordable blooms and greenery to use in your Christmas flower arrangements.
The fireplace mantle is one of the most oft-decorated areas of the home at Christmas. A simple display of candles, greenery, and deep red flowers and picks can make a stunning statement piece during your holiday parties.
Decorating your table can be a simple or elegant affair using Christmas flowers. For a cute approach that the kids and adults alike will love, create a candy cane arrangement
If you are feeling crafty, attach candy canes to a rectangular glass vase with hot glue. Spray with polycrylic to avoid stickiness. Use red carnations (or your favorite red or white floral combo) to fill the vase. Voila!
Using a white ceramic bowl and white-and-red-tipped carnations surrounding a white pillar candle, add a red and white striped tablecloth with peppermints for a fun kids table!
For a more elegant and sophisticated centerpiece, have your neighborhood florist create an arrangement to fit inside a small vase, then attach the vase to the top of a sturdy gold candlestick. This festive Christmas flower arrangement features white hydrangeas, red garden roses, red spray roses, red scabiosa privet berries, white snowberries, seeded eucalyptus, lemon leaf, and Israeli ruscus.
Another idea that would work for either a tablescape or mantle arrangement is to say no to color and go for cozy and metallic holiday vibes. Use a group of three smaller floral arrangements in white ceramic bowls and accent with white, rose gold, gold, and copper votive candles. These arrangements were created using garden rose, white anemone, cotton, alabaster garden rose, astilbe, bay laurel, and cedar.
We would love to help you create these and any other holiday arrangements you can imagine (or let us dream one up for you)! Contact our talented designers at any of our three locations in the Salt Lake Valley today!
