Crafting your very own Christmas centerpiece may seem like a daunting task, but it certainly doesn’t have to be that way. If you’re in need of a fresh and innovative idea GlobalRose is here to help with some easy steps you can follow along with so that your dining room table looks #AbsolutelyFestive this Christmas!
First and foremost, select your color palette. This will dictate the entire feeling of the design. For the Christmas, go with the absolute classic red and green! You can also bring your arrangement to life by adding extra detail, little personal nuances such as sparkly gold-treated branches (which can be purchased at craft stores such as Hobby Lobby or Michael’s) or silvery mistletoe that can be wrapped along the stems of flowers for that extra little festive touch. We also highly recommend experimenting with warmer colored hues such as deep plum purples and resonating golden oranges. and moreover, simple pairings such as white and silver or white and gold are equally as impressive; both pair gracefully with greenery and pine detailing.
That all being said, no Christmas centerpiece would be complete without some well chosen accessories! Whether you choose to go with real candles or electronic ones, there’s no denying their effect! They add a genuine warmness that is both elegant and gentle and if you’ve ever walked into a room lit with candles you’ll know exactly what we mean. The ambiance changes.
Ornaments such as small Christmas tree bulbs and Christmas lights that compliment your desired color scheme are another great way to really dress up your arrangements for the holidays and to make use of any older or unused Christmas decorations.
You may also consider beautiful Christmas ribbons to wrap around your vase, bells that jingle, pine cones, tree branches, or decorative fruit even. Let your imagination run wild and you might just surprise yourself with what you create!
You can choose to spend a little more time on your vase if you wish for a particularly innovative display. An example of this, try lining the outside of a low square vase with candy canes for a sweet touch or a table that has the center lined with mason jars is another friendly idea that is a little more down to earth and kitschy if that suits your taste.
