Artful Christmas Decoration Ideas for the Holidays

Holiday decorating is one of the joys of tshutterstock_235167862he Christmas season. Whether you choose traditional blooms and colors or opt for a non-traditional approach, flowers lighten the mood and brighten the energy at holiday gatherings. Whether you’re attending a party or hosting one of your own, flowers are always a welcome addition to holiday decor. Consider these artful blooms to help make the most of the beauty of the holiday season:

Festive Holiday Centerpieces

The centerpiece is key to setting the tone and creating the perfect zoom_C145gloriouswintercenterpiece-14112331348scene for your Christmas dinner spread.

The Holly Days centerpiece is a beautiful arrangement of white roses, red berries, pine cones and greenery.

The Glorious Winter Centerpiece blends traditional holiday elements like evergreen, red berries and frosted pine cones along with elegant orchids and other tropical elements for a truly unique centerpiece.

Holiday Plants and Blooms

Any arrangement that artfully combines red and green is a viable candidate for traditional Christmas decorating touches. The poinsettia is always perfect for exuding holiday cheer, but you might also consider bringing in the beautiful¬†Cyclamen — a gorgeous bright red blooming plant with elegantly frosted leaves surrounding the flowers. Holiday Kalanchoe is another festive choice, with more nuanced and detailed petals than poinsettia or cyclamen, but featuring that ideal contrasting combination of red and green.

While red accents with deep evergreen are the traditional approach to Christmas decorating, there are other ways to get their attention and celebrate the holiday season. All-white bouquets or mostly-white with subtle red or green accents can really take their breath away. Another exquisite bloom for the holidays is a Christmas-themed orchid arrangement.

Orchids and Berries is an arrangement that combines the best of both of these non-traditional flower ideas and can make for a gorgeous, artful centerpiece, accent or gift arrangement. This bouquet radiates all white dendrobium orchids, pine cones, red berry accents and bright cedar foliage. Orchid Delight blends orchids, hydrangea, red roses and calla lilies in a modern glass cube vase. You might also opt for a stunning all-white decorative approach with the Frost arrangement, which features various lilies and white hydrangea along with subtle seasonal greens.

Flowers are the perfect way to create a lush holiday environment this Christmas. Use these artful ideas to create the perfect backdrop for your holiday memories.
