Christmas centrepiece options and top choices

If you want your Christmas centrepiece to look its best, you need to consider a few important decisions that you will need to make. Here are some of the main design aspects that you will need to address when planning your holiday flower display for your dining room table.

Best colours

Before you begin, you will need to choose a colour scheme. Your Christmas centrepiece could include red and white flowers. You could even include some lush green foliage. Alternatively, you could pair red with gold or white with blue and silver. Brown accessories, such as pine cones, are also lovely additions to these displays regardless of the colour scheme you choose.

Types of flowers

Now that you know which colours you would like for your arrangement, it’s time to choose the right types of flowers. Christmas centrepiece arrangements may include roses, lilies, carnations, chrysanthemums or similar blooms. It’s also important to make sure that you choose the right foliage too. Dark green foliage is ideal since it resembles the colour of a Christmas tree.

Ideal size

Your Christmas centrepiece should take the limelight but this does not mean that it needs to be large. In fact, its size depends on the size of your table. It should also not be too tall or you will have trouble making eye contact with the people on the other side of the table.


Your Christmas centrepiece does not need to consist strictly of a single arrangement. You could opt for something more intricate like a tablescape. This requires a centre arrangement and extra decorations on either side. This is where you can really make the most of all the most beautiful accessories. Scatter some pine cones, make some mini Christmas gifts and similar decorations to line your table.

Remember, if you are looking for the perfect Christmas centrepiece for your home, you should look at the holiday blooms on sale at your favourite florist. You will find the most beautiful and perfectly designed bouquets listed in their holiday section.
