The holidays are the perfect time for decorating your home and making it even more beautiful, warm and welcoming than before. This is why so many people choose special seasonal centrepieces for the duration of the holidays and not only for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. If you are looking for a little inspiration, here are some lovely ideas for decorating your table these holidays.
Flowers with a vintage touch
When most people think about seasonal centrepieces, they often imagine colours like red, green and white. However, it does not mean that you have to stick to these colours. You can get a bit more creative and go for something a bit more vintage. Sure, you can include white and dark green elements as usual but, to make it truly special, you need dark red (or burgundy) blooms too. Set your flowers in a silver dish or pedestal-style vase and you’re all set! Allow the flowers and foliage to flow over the edge for a stunning and natural effect.
Now, this is not exactly what you might think at first. You will need bottles with wide bases and slender necks. The will need to act as candle holders but you also want to make the most of the interior of the bottle. Make sure that you choose tough flowers that will not break apart when submerged in water. Now place your flowers, foliage and berries in the bottle. Do not overfill the bottle. You only need a few stems. Next, you can add water and then place your candle on top. You only need to light the candle when enjoying dinner. Even when the candles are not lit, these seasonal centrepieces are a delight to behold.
Cranberries and other red berries make excellent vase fillers for your seasonal centrepieces. You can also use berries that are safe for consumption to create a tablescape. All you need to do is add a few bunches here and there or you can scatter them across the table.
Seasonal centrepieces do not need to be elaborate. In fact, simple designs are becoming increasingly popular. This is because it gives your table a more modern appearance. It is also better because you have more room for all your cutlery, crockery and glassware.
