‘Tis the season to deck the halls! What colors have you chosen to make your home holiday ready? For some, it’s the traditional hues of red and green that makes Christmas feel right. Others will seek a more modern vibe through unconventional colors. Love pink? Embrace it and pair hot pink with silver or gold or both! It’s your Christmas and you need to feel good about the colors that surround you during the holidays. And that goes for your Christmas flowers too.
Fresh flowers make us feel good and they look beautiful, so go ahead and add them in as part of your holiday displays. Christmas flowers come in all kinds of colors and forms from festive table top centerpieces, to fanciful Christmas arrangements to elegant bouquets! With floral designs ranging from traditional to modern, simply choose your style and colors and let an expert florist help you effortlessly incorporate Christmas flowers into your holiday decorating.
If red and green is your thing, nothing says Happy Holidays like red poinsettias! Place a table runner on the dinning table, side board or counter and group three red poinsettias together for huge impact. The showy poinsettia blooms along with their large green leaves and sturdy stems add a great dose of red and green into your home. Want red to be the predominant color? Use long stemmed red roses in a tall vase for a classic yet elegant look. If you love red and white together, consider the Snowy Night Bouquet by Teleflora with red and white roses in a cube vase. Simple and stylish floral designs are soothing to come home to during the hustle and bustle of the season.
Love green? Use lots of greenery on the mantle paired with gold or silver ornaments in shiny or matte. Ask your florist for pale green flowers or if you dare, try some spunky lime ones. If blue is your go to color year round, (everything from jewel toned peacock blue to baby blue to sky blue), use it for your holiday displays too. You can mix blue with white, silver or gold or both metallics. White flowers can be incorporated into the blue theme by placing them in a blue vase or wrapping a clear glass vase with coordinating blue ribbon.
Pink adds a pop of color to your holiday displays and a grouping of pink orchids next to a snowy white bowl of silver and gold metallic ornaments can look current and fresh. However, if all this talk of color is too much of a commitment for you, try classic winter white hued flowers. White will always look just right in your home.
Just remember that there are no rules about the colors to use when decorating for Christmas. Just follow your heart and decorate with whatever colors lift your spirits. For a cohesive and consistent look, simply carry your color theme throughout your decorating and onto the tree. Don’t forget, a florist can help bring clarity to your holiday color vision with fabulous Christmas flowers.
