The festive season has officially begun, which means taking down the Christmas decorations from the attic and turning your home into a cosy wonderland of sparkle and magic. This may be a dreaded task and can feel overwhelming to some or perhaps you’re bored of using the same formula as previous years to decorate your home and are looking for some inspiration. We have put together some unique Christmas flower decoration ideas to encourage you to incorporate beautiful Christmas floral arrangements into your overall theme, but in unexpected ways..
A Floral Christmas Tree
We are sure decorating your Christmas Tree with flowers is not your first thought when you think of “Christmas flower decoration ideas”, however, the results can be pretty incredible. You can use fresh flowers, dried flowers or even paper flowers to add a whimsical yet elegant and pretty touch to your Christmas Tree this year. You can find many tutorials online showing you easy ways to create your very own reusable flowers. The beauty is that they can then be packed away for the next year or even re-purposed for other decorations such as Christmas floral table decorations or any other Christmas floral arrangement ideas you think of! Simply stick the stems of the flowers into the tree and secure with floral wire. You can then add any other traditional decorations you would like such as fairy lights and baubles.
Floral Chair Decorations
We often see chair decorations only at very special occasions like weddings, but who said we can’t bring the same level of class and flair to our Christmas dinner parties? Your guests will feel extra special when they sit in their decorated chair making the Christmas festivities a true celebration. Simply tie some ribbon and either dried or fresh flowers horizontally across the chair. You could also hang a mini floral wreath off the back of the chair for an even more unique take on Christmas floral table decorations as seen in the image below.
Floral Place Settings
When thinking about some Christmas flower decoration ideas, we reckon you can’t go wrong with beautiful floral place settings. How about adding an inventive and festive touch to your napkins to really wow your guests this Christmas. Simply pop in a few single stem flowers (dried or fresh) into the centre of a napkin, maybe add a little bit of holly and some green fir leaves, then simply tie with a piece of ribbon. If you want to make this place setting extra special, how about adding a cute little name tag so that your guests have their own personalised place setting.
A Floral Christmas Hanging Branch
Christmas floral table decorations don’t necessarily need to be ON the table, they can also be placed above the table, hanging from the ceiling. A festive Christmas branch dripping in snowy flowers is surprisingly simple to create even though it looks super elaborate. All you need to do is find a lovely branch that is large enough to hold your decorations, you can then add whatever you’d like to this branch using floral wire. Hang from the ceiling using invisible wire and strong hooks to secure. Finally, get decorating with your flowers, baubles and fairy lights. You can even add a snow spray layer to make it extra Christmassy.
Edible Floral Christmas Decorations
The floral additions don’t need to stop with your house decorations, you can also use flowers to make the delicious desserts that you serve that bit more impressive. Add classic Christmas flowers to your cake for an instant flourish of festive fun. Be aware that not all flowers are edible, so make sure to do your research, if you are unsure, it is best to place the flowers on the dessert and remove them before serving. You could also create your very own fondant Christmas flowers using roll out icing if you want something edible and gorgeous.
