Create a Stunning Centerpiece
Create an elegant Christmas centerpiece with red roses surrounded by white tallow berries in silver vases made to resemble birch bark. Tuck pieces of boxwood garland and sprigs of berries around the base of the vases; add votives to finish the look.
Create an Arrangement with Fruit and Greenery
Use a glass hurricane or vase to create an arrangement that will last throughout the Christmas season by filling the jar with a layer of limes, red holly berries, and lemons. Top it off with stems of greenery.
Give Your Dining Table a Vivid Focal Point
Pair velvety red with chartreuse green to give the classic Christmas colors a fresh update. Start with a silver punch bowl. Round shapes work best here. To make arranging easier in a wide container, use tape to make a grid across the top of the punch bowl. Add chartreuse-colored hydrangeas at each corner. Then add flowering cabbage toward the center and sides of the bowl, and pack in roses between the hydrangeas. Fill in with sprigs of red hypericum berries and white pine.
Create an Evergreen Centerpiece
Use a footed silver serving tray to display a sumptuous centerpiece with vintage ornaments and clippings from the garden. Start with Southern classics: boxwood, pine, and magnolia. Next add large ball ornaments, followed by crocosmia pods, pinecones, and abelia whose flowers have dropped, leaving a showy flourish of pink sepals on the tips of branches. Finish with delicate sprigs of evergreens, dried shelf mushrooms attached to florist picks, and smaller ornaments.
