Christmas Fun with Red and Green Floralsby Stephen Rittner on December 1, 2016 at 11:45 am
Christmas means many different things to many different people. For some, it represents the birth of Jesus. For others, it represents peace on earth and goodwill to one another. To others, it represents winter weather and sports, wonderful sales and lots of presents. Regardless of your beliefs, Christmas is celebrated worldwide. Let flowers express your favorite parts of the Christmas season.
I enjoy celebrating with the traditional Christmas colors of red and green. Flowers can be designed and displayed in so many joyous ways in reds and greens. Here are just a few examples, and your local florist has so many more. Visit their shop for expertise and a truly festive experience.
A floral arrangement with berries, vines and evergreen foliage evokes a natural Christmas feeling.
A traditional red and green Christmas floral arrangement with bursts of pink would brighten your home’s foyer, sideboard or mantel. Designed on all sides, it could be adapted as a centerpiece.
A floral arrangement created in traditional reds and greens with branches, berries and gold balls is a welcome greeting for a reception area or mantel.
The holiday season is associated with so many wonderful botanicals. Pine, balsam firs, and holly by themselves make festive greetings.
Centuries of songs celebrate the season. This container simulates a Christmas caroler’s hat. What a great icebreaker for a holiday party.
Children love flowers, too. Send floral gifts to youngsters, or the young at heart. Ask your florist to add a stuffed animal to your floral gift.
Groupings of holiday colors and botanicals add warmth to workspaces.
Flowers and the way they’re designed can add so much to your holiday celebration. I hope that you enjoy a happy and healthy Christmas.
