Using Flowers to Decorate this Christmas
The holidays bring festive sights, sounds and lots of holiday cheer. It’s the perfect time to reconnect with family and friends while reflecting about the highlights of the year gone by. Whether you’re invited to holiday gatherings or are hosting your own, flowers can help to provide the ideal setting for a Christmas celebration. Adorn your own home or surprise your host with these holiday flower gift and decor ideas:
Traditional Christmas plants and flowers are a classic way to set the scene and get everyone in the holiday mood. These festive Christmas flower decor accents have red and green as the central theme.
Holiday centerpieces. The holiday centerpiece brings a warm, inviting focal point to your gathering. A Candlelight Christmas will light up your table with your choice of one, two or three taper candles surrounded by holiday greenery, red carnations, white mums, faux berries, pine cones, and small metallic red ornaments.
Poinsettia. The classic holiday poinsettia plant combines stunning bright red leaves with dark greenery and is the perfect holiday accent plant. Buy poinsettia on its own in Winter’s Kiss, or get it mingled with other flowers as in the O Come All Ye arrangement, which includes a poinsettia plus elements that could include ferns, cyclamen, kalanchoe, ivy, azalea, African violet, peace lily, prayer plant, diffenbachia, and more.
Elegant Winter Decor Alternatives
While red and green epitomize Christmas, you can also break with tradition and still dazzle them with your decor. Lily accents and all-white bouquets are two striking ways to do this.
Stunning holiday lilies. An unexpected but beautiful approach to Christmas decorating is holiday lilies. Home for the Holidays combines stargazer lilies with red roses and greenery for a breathtaking effect. The Christmas Waltz features calla lilies along with mini hydrangeas and holiday accents in understated gold, umber and sepia tones.
Winter white flowers call to mind a pristine snowfall and can bring an elegant touch to any holiday celebration. Celebrate gathers together white lilies and roses along with evergreens, gold glitter ornaments and two taper candles in an artistic glass cube vase. Winter’s Friend combines white roses, carnations and button poms with a smiling white snowman accent.
Whether you opt for traditional red and green or non-traditional arrangements, these flower ideas are sure to enhance your Christmas gatherings.
