Christmas arrangements with a minimalist style

It is clear that green is one of the colours that is associated with Christmas and the holiday season in general. There are many conifers available even when the weather is at its coldest. These types of leaves make the perfect Christmas wreath. When it comes to creating a beautiful arrangement, pots and vegetables are just as important as the flowers themselves. Of course, if you’re on a tight budget, you’ll be relieved to know that there are many ways to create your own Christmas arrangements using just a few flowers! This way, by saving a lot of money, there is no reason to send your friends and loved ones flowers for the holidays.

The smell of Christmas

There is nothing like the smell of Christmas. After December rolls around and you put away all the decorations, it’s as if the smell of tinsel and fresh pine is in your mind as completely as the smell of the season. Although we would all like to have a good tree in our house, it is not always practical. Even if you feel like you’re “stuck” with artificial wood, you can still smell pine in your home. Just make or order a Christmas arrangements with a colourful green head. This will highlight the Christmas theme and allow you to enjoy a new fragrance without breaking the bank. You can choose between using one type of green or combine several to create a contrast of colours and textures. Pine, cypress, lemon leaf and boxwood are popular this time of year. If you want to add colour, you can place thin branches with red berries between them and put some flowers in the middle to create a focal point for your arrangement. This basic design idea can be used to create a bouquet placed in a vase or floral foam. You can even create your own wreaths and party favours.

Use larger blooms

Another great way to create your Christmas arrangements with a few select flowers is to use large open flowers such as lilies and orchids. Place them in glass bowls or tubes with water. You can fill a bowl or tube with water so that the flowers are completely filled. This will increase the size of the flower to be larger than it actually is. This arrangement is perfect for decorating your Christmas lunch or dinner table. Bowls are best for round tables so everyone can enjoy the view, while cylinders are best for rectangular tables because they don’t take up too much space. In fact, these two types of arrangement take up less space compared to large Christmas flowers and you won’t need to spend a lot of money on new flowers.

Festive plants

Another option is to use plants like poinsettias and Christmas cacti. Both are suitable for the season and will give your home a wonderful look. They also make great gifts and you can even cover the jars with paper and/or tie Christmas ribbon around them. Potted plants are especially popular as gifts, because they are considered a gift that keeps on giving and, if you give them to yourself, you can enjoy them in ‘the time of rest without worrying about them comes before the end of the celebration. So, when you think of Christmas arrangements, don’t forget to consider some festive plants too.

You don’t need to spend a lot of money to make somebody smile this holiday season. The right Christmas arrangements will always go a long way to making this time of year that much more festive and fun for all.
