Have you wanted to make a professional looking Christmas floral arrangement for entertaining or decor? I have a simple way to do it!
You can make a pretty Christmas floral arrangement using a cake stand and a bowl!
We are counting down the days to Christmas, where there may be gatherings, parties or maybe just lovely quiet time enjoying the season at home. I have a very easy way to put together an impressive floral arrangement. the best part is you can put this together in a bowl standing on a cake stand and it turns out beautifully! Let me show you…
To start, you will want to grab a bowl and a cake stand. This is what you will use to hold your arrangement. The cake stand provides height (but isn’t too high to be overwhelming).
Anytime I use a bowl to arrange flowers, I always use my favorite tape trick. Tape a grid across the whole thing. This helps keep stems secure.
I grabbed a few bunches of pine branches, some eucalyptus, and a large flower at the grocery store. The key here, is making sure to get greenery that will hang low over the bowl. If you use pine branches then you can gently bend them so they hang in the direction you want.
Here you can see that I am filling in spaces with hanging branches. I do try to insert the the stems closer to the center as they are more stable this way and yet the hang over too.
Once you have a nice base, you will being filling in. You want this step to have stems and flowers that begin to stick up.
I love imperfect arrangements and the look of things being asymmetrical. So you will notice I have the flower of focus sitting off to the side. And some branches leaning more heavy to one side. There is no right or wrong to this.
And if you answered yes to: “Have you wanted to make a professional looking Christmas floral arrangement for entertaining or decor”? Then I am so happy to have shared this easy way to do it!
It is so simple, yet you can make a pretty Christmas floral arrangement using a cake stand and a bowl!
Couple extra important tips: while your arranging, if things feel too loose or like they may fall over, just make sure to add more stems into your taped grid. This will hold things in tightly.
Another big tip I use when arranging is to incorporate fruit (fresh or faux).
I carefully placed some into the arrangement and more on the side or next to it.
There you have it! Funny thing is, once I was don’t photographing this I pushed it to the side and it tipped water all over! Ugh, haha! So do be careful if you are moving this to keep things steady.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
