December is that time of year that so many Holiday’s, that mean so very much to so very many offers us the opportunity to learn and grow from each other. I’m sure many of you are in the midst of planning holiday dinners, parties and decoratating your homes. Flowers and fresh evergreens always compliment any dinner table, an entry hall table, guest powder room, or guest rooms where holiday guest may be staying to name a few. Here are a few tips and things to think about from Flowers Plus to help you choose the right flowers for your table!
Avoid Fragrant Flowers. Some flowers smell wonderfully fragrant, but for a dinner table, it’s best to avoid aromatic blooms. You don’t want the scent interfering with the delicious meal that you’ve just spent hours preparing! Also, avoid high allergen flowers.
So now that you know what flowers to avoid, which are the best flowers to use for your holiday table? Our favorite flowers that we always love to use for holiday centerpieces are Velvety Roses, Orchids, Calla Lilies, Snow Flake Mums, Snap Dragons, Hypericum Berrries, Hydrangia, Stars of Bethlehem, pods, and mixed winter foiliages…just to name a few.
Always make sure your centerpiece does not block the view of the person sitting across from you. While the flowers may be beautiful, you do not want them interfering with having a conversation! Make sure that your flowers are a reasonable height. You either go low (no higher than 12” to 15” tall) or go really high like decorating your chandelier with flowers!
If you’re lucky enough to have a massive table, you can order a large centerpiece without it taking up too much of a footprint on your table. For those with less space, a smaller centerpiece or individual vases and arrangements might be better so you have enough room to showcase all those great treats for all of your guest!
Just tell us your vision and our designers will create something beautiful that is sure to please!
Wishing you and your families a very Happy and Safe Holiday Season, and from all of us at Flowers Plus, “Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year!”
