If you’re looking for ideas for entertaining and decorating with Christmas flowers, you’ve come to the right place. We love a beautifully decorated home at Christmastime, and we spend quite a bit of the holiday season figuring out which flowers will look most amazing when our friends and family visit.
The following are some of the fun ways that we think entertaining and decorating with Christmas flowers can go hand in hand this year:
For a Casual Holiday Celebration
If you’re having friends and family over for a casual holiday celebration, consider these ideas to decorate with Christmas flowers:
- Create snowballs and snowmen using white carnations.
- Fill your outdoor garden pots with poinsettias, ivy, cyclamen, and amaryllis.
- Greet your party guests at the door with a personal mini-wreath that they can take home with them.
- Use fresh flowers, such as paper whites and candy-striped amaryllis, on your Christmas tree (place them in vials of water).
- Wrap presents with pretty bows and sprigs of mistletoe.
For an Elegant Christmas Event
When you’re throwing an elegant Christmas affair, you can use traditional, or contemporary, holiday flowers as decorations and place them in fancy bowls or containers. Or, adorn them in a super-special way. Try the following:
