For anyone who doesn’t want a tree, there are many different ways to create a festive atmosphere and avoid a carpet of needles on the floor. How about a flower buffet to set the scene?
Silent night, flowering bright
Introduce style elements from our eco-luxe trend to your table. The centrepiece is an asymmetric hanging bouquet, featuring flowers with a natural, but luxurious look. This includes chrysanthemums, amaryllises, roses, rosehips, callas, cymbidiums, botanical branches and - for a velvety touch of Christmas - red kangaroo paws. Arrange them loosely and scatter some individual flowers across the rest of the table to achieve the best effect.
Your green branches will delight!
- Geometric lines and natural structures will work well in this case.
- Feature geometric coloured glasses to keep things bright.
- Use natural materials such as copper, wood and ceramics.
- Soundtrack: Joni Mitchell’s 'River' - It don't snow here, stays pretty green.
- Restrict your colours to green for fresh, red for Christmas and yellow for glow.
- It’s even more luxurious if you spray the rosehips gold.
From Down Under
The beautiful red colour of the kangaroo paw is ideal for Christmas arrangements. It has an attractive whimsical shape which fits this trend perfectly, and works beautifully with copper and wood. In Australia these‘botanicals are common Christmas flowers, like holly is here.
