Festive arrangements and gorgeous colour schemes

One of the most important parts of decorating your home this holiday season is choosing the right flowers for the occasion. Not only do you want to select festive arrangements that suit the season, but you also want to make sure that they suit your personal preferences. Here are a few ideas to help you select the right types of flowers as well as the best colour combinations.

Christmas roses

Red and white are clear winners when it comes to festive arrangements and roses are classic beauties. So, if you are looking for a bouquet that will prove appropriate and elegant, you should ask your florist about their red and white roses. These blooms can be displayed as a centrepiece or you can place them on a table in your living room or entrance hall for example. Add fair lights, baubles and other accessories the bouquet for extra sparkle.

Red, white and green

If you want something more traditional, you can always opt for a red, white and green display. These festive arrangements often include several types of flowers along with red berries and possibly even some accents like pine cones. Consider stylish pairs such as roses and lilies or roses with carnations so that there is a clear variation in terms of colour and texture. Dark green foliage is best since it will represent the luxurious evergreen leaves that we are able to enjoy in the winter months.

Something tropical

Festive arrangements do not always need to stick to the status quo. There are so many amazing ways in which you can spruce up your holiday style and add even more colour to your Christmas table. Tropical flowers such as ginger flowers, anthuriums and birds of paradise can all be used to make your home that much brighter. These bouquets are best left without the addition of traditional accessories since you do not want the two themes to clash.

With all of these fantastic ideas for festive arrangements in mind, it’s important that you not forget about Christmas trees too! Even if you have a large tree on display in your home, you can always add a mini potted tree to brighten up a dull corner or even use as a centrepiece.
