Decorating with Flowers
I LOVE flowers and I decorate with them year round so it is no surprise that I use flowers to decorate during the holidays! Flowers from a florist can be a pricey addition to your holiday decor so here are my tips for creating your own arrangements this holiday season…
Tip 1. Go to Costco
Stock up on roses, hydrangeas or whatever else
Costco is stocking that matches your
holiday decor and do various arrangements
for different areas of your home.
Tip 2. Start Small
Find a smaller vase than you think you’ll need.
By using a smaller vase you will create full, dense
and perfect arrangements with ease.
Don’t get overwhelmed by starting with a huge bouquet.
Do three small bouquets that are easier to manage.
Arrange the bouquets on your dining table for a bigger impact.
Tip 3. Keep it Simple
A monochromatic colour scheme is a fool proof
way to have a chic arrangement every time.
Tip 4. Think Geometric Shapes
When you’re arranging lean toward creating square
or circular arrangements depending on the vase you’ve chosen.
Tip 5. Cut the Stems to Fit
When trimming the stems cut them so they fit
the height of the vase. This stabilizes the flower and
keeps the arrangement sturdy.
Tip 6. Think Outside of the Vase
Use an unconventional vase or decorate your existing vases.
An urn vase, wooden box or tree ornaments add a festive touch.
Flowers bring some freshness to your home during these
cold winter months and add colour and texture
to your holiday decor.
