Modern bouquets for Christmas
Every year, we see many of the same kinds of Christmas bouquets and flowers at various florists. Some of the arrangements look so similar that it can really take the thrill out of sending and receiving Christmas flowers. Some of these bouquet designs have become so cliché that they are as common as your average Christmas tree. The good news is that this need not be the case in your home. Many florists around the world have come up with new and exciting was to decorate your home with flowers over the holidays. This year, a more modern approach could be just the change you need!
When you look at the history of floristry, you will notice just how far it has come over the years. Not only have florists come up with new and exciting colour combinations, but we are also getting increasingly creative with the way our flowers are displayed. We are no longer confined to traditional vases and we can really give each bouquet a theme.
Whether you are planning on ordering flowers for yourself or a loved one for Christmas, there are a few things to consider. Firstly, you need to make a decision regarding the colour scheme of the bouquet. If you want to stay true to the traditional Christmas theme, then you could opt for something with a fair bit of green, red, and white. You could also opt for a blue and silver bouquet, a red and gold arrangement, or even a white and green bunch of flowers and foliage. Consider your home décor or that of the recipient when choosing the best colours.
Poinsettias are known for being associated with the holidays but if you want to take it up a notch, you could add some extra colour to this potted plant in the form of festive accessories. Think about the red and gold theme and imagine just how great a poinsettia will look with gold accessories in between. This will really help emphasize the festive theme.
In fact, you can add these kinds of shimmering accessories to just about any bunch of flower arrangement in order to give it that more modern touch. Remember, however, to avoid excessive amounts of greenery and focus on fewer colours rather than trying to include a bit of everything. Simplicity is the ideal approach when trying to achieve a modern design.
As for your container or vase of choice, here is where you can get even more creative! Rather than leaving your vase plain, you can add some festive flair with a holiday ribbon. Again, simplicity is key but you want to add that festive touch. This is why a clear glass vase with a ribbon is so effective. It is festive without taking any attention away from the flowers themselves.
Finally, don’t forget to place your bouquet in just the right spot so that it has just the right effect! You want to set your Christmas flowers in an area where they won’t be overshadowed by other decorations and the size of the bouquet should also suit its location. So, don’t place a huge bouquet on a small side table, for example, place it on a larger table in the corner of your living room instead.
