Holiday Floral Arrangements

December 18, 2018

Whether it’s a holiday dinner, or a boxing day get together, we are all bound to be hosting or attending a dinner party this season. Our dining tables become central to all gatherings with family and friends. This year, as you’re putting a holiday table setting together, or getting reading to head to another dinner party, don’t hesitate to make a holiday floral arrangement. Adding a floral element to your table is an easy way to elevate your space. By adding a pop of color, your table is not only brighter, but the freshness of the spruce, cedar, and eucalyptus will add a wonderful fragrance to your home. I’ve also found that giving my friends and family a holiday arrangement is better than a gift!

Flowers have the ability transform a space. Whether you want to make a specific centrepiece for your dinner setting or simply liven up your table throughout the season, having the right shape of arrangement can make all the difference.

We prefer to match our style of arrangement with the table we have. For instance, if we have a rectangular table, like the Florence Rectangular Dining Table, we’ll make a longer arrangement to take advantage of the table length.

For this arrangement, we opted for an oval vase. Starting with foliage, we placed pieces of spruce, cedar, eucalyptus and pine together to form a sturdy base for our flowers. We then added in red daisies, white chrysanthemums, and freesia’s. Our final touches were some red winterberries for an added festive feel. Feel free to use your own variety of flowers and foliage- after all, this is all about customizing your space for the holiday season!

The same process can be used when creating a circular arrangement. You can determine the size of your arrangement based on whether or not you want your arrangement to be on your table during the main course. We opted for a smaller sized arrangement for the Fenwick Round Dining Table so that we could have space for our place settings.

When making circular arrangements, I find it best to start with a making a tape grid. I do 5×5 sections across my vase. This will aid in arranging the flowers and keep them in place afterwards! If you do choose to make a grid, pour in your water after creating the grid. This will ensure that your tape sticks to the vase and does not peel off.  Now, you can add in your foliage base. We used the same foliage as above (cedar, spruce, and eucalyptus). When you are happy with your foliage base, you can begin to add in your larger flowers (in this case the red daisies). Follow up with some more delicate flowers (freesias and chrysanthemum) after and add in your winterberries as the final touch!

Happy Holidays!
