Decorating For Christmas
The festive season is upon us and it really is the most wonderful time of the year! One of the things we absolutely love about the Christmas period is seeing all the different decorations people put together to celebrate the festive season, from Christmas trees, table decorations and pretty lights. But most importantly, we love to see how flowers are used to create gorgeous festive decorations at this time of year. We know that everyone is incredibly busy throughout December with social commitments, Christmas parties and shopping, so we have compiled a list of tips to help dress your home with flowers for the Christmas period!
Choosing a Festive Palette & Style
Firstly, when it comes to decorating your house with Christmas flowers, the most important part is to pick a colour palette that is consistent, elegant and complements the features of your home. The ‘classic’ Christmas colour palette is a mix of greenery and striking reds, as seen in our Cosmopolitan and Rosy bouquets. These colours immediately elicit feelings of Christmas joy and tie in beautifully with traditional festive decorations such as the tree, candy canes and Santa hats! A colour scheme that is becoming increasingly popular for an Australian Christmas is a pastel palette with Natives, as seen in our Blushing Natives Bouquet. Aside from their beauty, Natives have increased in popularity due to their longevity compared to other blooms. With the right care, Natives can easily last over two weeks, meaning they’ll continue to be fresh and fragrant right through the festive season. Don’t forget you can dry them out too and they’ll last for a year.
Christmas Table Decor
One of the best ways to impress your friends and family over Christmas lunch is with a stunning arrangement of flowers for your dining table. The Christmas feast (we’re already drooling thinking about it) at lunch and dinner is often the highlight of the day and a floral centerpiece is the perfect addition to complete the experience. We recommend organising an arrangement that ties in with the plates, cutlery, napkins and decorations of your table to provide the perfect ambience. Our new range of bouquets created by former Harper’s BAZAAR editor-in-chief and Klarna Content editor Kellie Hush are elegant and joyful arrangements that would work perfectly as an impressive table centerpiece. Haley from our Sunshine Coast floral studio would recommend the Bold Blooms Bouquet if you are looking for an extravagant arrangement that complements a traditional Christmas palette on your dining table.
Christmas decorations aren’t complete without the addition of a floral Christmas wreath to symbolise eternity and growth. A wreath is one of the most traditional Christmas decorations and remains one of the best ways to create a natural, festive atmosphere to any setting. Our Festive Wreath is a stunning assortment of vibrant flowers that is perfect for the front door or Christmas table if you are creating a traditional palette. Our Natural and Pale Wreaths are a unique twist on the traditional Christmas wreath and perfectly complement a Native palette.
