I love decorating the table for the holidays and I’m thrilled to show you how to design your own holiday centrepieces!

I get so excited pulling out the holiday plates, setting the candles and dressing the table to welcome family and loved ones.

Depending on how you are serving your holiday meal, sometimes it’s easier to use small containers for your centrepieces rather than having one large centrepiece in the middle of the table. With smaller containers, there is still lots of room for food platters and wine glasses. You can design in an assortment of votive holders, Julip cups in a mix of colours, and metals.

It is fun to bring the colours from your artwork into your floral designs. I used touches of blue in the candles to match as well as pulling red into the design.

Some of our favourite florals for dressing the Christmas table are:

  • Arachna and Ashima orchids
  • free spirit roses
  • kale
  • pine
  • cedar
  • juniper
  • magnolia
  • skimmia
  • ilex berries
