Elegant blooms for your holiday celebrations

When decorating your home for the holidays, you may already be familiar with the popular traditional choices. Of course, if you are looking for a bouquet that is truly elegant, there are a few particular blooms you should be on the lookout for. Here are some of the most elegant blooms that are perfect for the holidays.

Flowers and colours

The first thing that you need to remember is that a truly festive bouquet is not limited to a red, white and green colour scheme. You can opt for a red and gold bouquet, blue, white and silver arrangement or even a plain white selection of the most elegant blooms you can find. With these colours in mind, you can explore all your flower options.

Red roses

One of the most popular and elegant blooms of all are roses. A bouquet of red roses can be seen as a romantic gesture so you should make sure that you add some white mass flowers or some gold accessories to ensure that you emphasize the festive theme instead.

Luxurious lilies

Lilies are also known for being particularly elegant blooms. There are a number of different varieties out there so you really can take your pick. Oriental lilies are particularly great for this time of year because of their red and white colours. You don’t even need to pair them with any other flowers for a fabulous display.

Irises or tulips

Irises and tulips are also known for their elegance and they are available in many colours – including white. They can be displayed all on their own or in a mixed bouquet if you prefer. If paired with red blooms, you can be sure that they will certainly stand out.

Mixed bouquets

While most bouquets of elegant blooms usually only include one or two types of flowers, there is no rule to say that you cannot mix it up a little more. You can even go so far as to include colours other than those dictated by tradition. Take a look at all of the holiday bouquets available at your online florist before you make up your mind.

No matter which elegant blooms you choose, don’t forget the importance of choosing the right vase! Shorter, fish bowl style vases are excellent for centrepiece arrangements since they will not obscure your view of your guests on the other side of the table. Hat box arrangements are also wonderful. If you want to present a Christmas bouquet as a gift, you can also opt for a bouquet in a luxurious gift bag for the perfect presentation.
