Holiday Decorating Ideas with Flowers
The holidays are supposed to be a cheerful, happy time, so it’s only fitting that the atmosphere of your home or office reflect that as well. Nothing says “cheerful” and “happy” more than fresh arrangements of flowers that fill the room with life and vibrant. Part of what’s great about flowers is that there are blooms for every season as well, so you can schedule an online flower delivery any time of year without having to worry about the availability of fresh blooms. If you want to decorate your home or office for the holiday season, consider the following ideas when doing so.
Garlands are a great way to instantly bring a bit of festive cheer to any space. When you visit an online florist and buy flowers online, try to select from varieties that can easily be hung on a garland. For instance, poinsetta blooms can be pinned to garlands to get them a festive look, as can roses, carnations, lilies and more. Simply cut a few stems from your floral bouquets and then tie the stems onto a garland strung around a staircase or draping from a fireplace to add the freshness of flowers to it.
No holiday is complete without a feast, and even if you don’t have one, you can certainly use your dining table as a decorative piece by creating a holiday tablescape on it. Fresh flowers are always a great addition to any tablescape, so you can simply take the flowers that you had sent to you from your online florist and place them in the center of your table, or you can get even more creative by placing the floral arrangements in a bowl, vase or basket that’s filled with decorative ornaments or moss to add to the holiday ambiance. You can also fill a couple of holiday-themed wine glasses, mason jars or wine bottles with flowers from your arrangement as well to add to your holiday tablescape. Add a couple of tapered candles into the mix to complete the festive look.
Wreaths are great decorative pieces for every season, and they are especially so for the holidays. Instead of purchasing a pre-fabricated wreath for the holidays, you can use your floral bouquets to create your own personalized one. Simply arrange your blossoms’ stems into your wreath in the design that you wish, and not only will your wreath feature seasonal blooms, but it’ll also give off a nice, fresh aroma.
If you have a mantle, then you certainly need a centerpiece on it for the holidays. Consider creating a tiered centerpiece featuring different seasonal blooms, or arrange blossoms around a candelabra or pillared candle centered atop your mantle. Floral centerpieces placed atop mantles that have mirrors above them look particularly well since the blooms can then reflect into other areas of the room.
No matter whether you plan to send flowers to India or some other part of the world, there are plenty of ways that you can incorporate the blooms you receive from your online florist into your holiday decorating theme.
