There are so many reasons to host an event during the holidays, but right up there at the top is the florals and greens available for decorating. Behold the glorious sight of flickering candles mingled in with fir and pine cones, a vivid display of seasonal blooms at its heart. Today we’re providing three ways to style your holiday event table, whether you’re going for rustic elegance or lavish luxe.
Cranberry & Plum
Don’t overlook this color story when it comes to planning the tables for your holiday event. Rich yet vibrant cranberry makes a marvelous complement to plummy purple, with its touch of majesty. Set off by evergreen and metallic accents, this color scheme is perfect for a luxe affair such as a fundraiser or a gala.
White is never so elegant as when it’s deployed on a rustic table, glammed up by gold or bronze place settings and floral vessels. The full range of whites creates a serene tablescape, especially when other earthy, organic elements are brought into the scene. This approach to holiday event flowers works indoors or out and keeps the focus on nature.
In The Reds
This classic color choice lends itself to a traditional holiday party or event. A surprising number of flowers have a red variety, but that doesn’t mean you have to stick to just flowers to pull of this look. Weave in berries, evergreens and even fruits like the pomegranate shown here. Use pedestals and vessels of different heights and finishes to give the tablescape a modern look.
