A special occasion, such as Christmas dinner, calls for a little bit of extra effort on your table decor. A special floral arrangement for your Christmas table will be the focal point of the meal and will really make the day feel more festive. The exciting thing about living in the warm climate of Perth is that you will have many beautiful flowers to choose from during this time of year.
Here are some great ideas for unique floral Christmas table decorations:
Vase Arrangements & Flowers
Christmas can be a stressful time of year which is why cutting a few corners every now and then is totally acceptable. To make dressing up your Christmas lunch/dinner table that little bit easier – why not order in some beautiful fresh flowers. You can leave them as is and put them on the table or get creative and spread out a bouquet into various different vases (see our vintage vases idea below).
Our Blitzen Vase Arrangement is a stunning centrepiece in a vase that consists of a hand-picked assortment of fresh, seasonal flowers. They are selected for their happy, festive feeling and would be a perfect decorative addition to your Christmas table. If you want to make sure that you will receive your floral arrangement before Christmas, make sure that it is sent before midday Friday, 23 December.
A homemade table wreath is a festive and exciting way to decorate during the Christmas season. A Touch of Class recently did a demonstration at a local Bunnings Hardware store on how to make your own holiday wreath.
The wreath is quite simple to make, and you can use any type of flowers or other materials. You can use the traditional holiday flowers of holly and poinsettia, or you can incorporate some native Australian flowers such as waratah, wattle, banksia, kangaroo paw and eucalyptus. This means that your wreath is completely customisable to the decor of your home and the colour scheme of your other Christmas decorations.
Place Cards with a Sprig of Rosemary
Place cards not only serve the practical purpose of letting your guests know where they should sit, they also can be a lovely decorative element. These little rosemary sprig place cards are incredibly simple to make, yet they look so elegant and festive. All you need to make them are a few sprigs of rosemary, printed place cards and a hole punch. The great thing about these is that your guests will be able to sniff their place cards and enjoy the wonderful scent of rosemary. This is especially a great idea if you’re serving up lamb for Christmas lunch!
The vintage trend is hot at the moment, so why not re-purpose old mason jars and bottles for your Christmas table? You can wrap lace and vintage ribbon around the glass jars to make them even more special. Fill some of them with sand and a tea light candle and others with cheerful bunches of flowers and greenery. The tall and skinny bottles are better as vases, while the stouter mason jars work well as candle holders.
Mini Christmas Trees
Check out this adorable idea for a mini evergreen table centrepiece. All you need are baby pine trees, which you can plant in elegant white vases and arrange in the centre of your table on a silver platter. Decorate the trees with twinkling lights or tiny baubles to complete the look!
Another great idea for your Christmas table centrepiece is a beautiful bowl of succulents. Cacti are very stylish at the moment and you don’t have to worry about remembering to water them during the busy and hectic Christmas season. After providing the focal point at Christmas dinner, your succulent will last for weeks on a window ledge or bathroom vanity.
These are just a few exciting and unconventional Christmas table ideas that you can try when decorating your table this Christmas. This day only comes around once a year, so it’s worth the extra effort to make it as special as possible.
