Holiday Party ideas
Here is a series of pictures showing the evolution of one arrangement to fit nicely within several price points.
We've started with small round vase, we call this one the bubble bowl. Into the bubble bowl we've placed a single white hydrangea, tucked in some seeded eucalyptus and for flair, silver glittered ting ting. It makes a charming, and certainly affordable centerpiece for any festive occasion.
In the next picture you can see that we've kicked up a notch by adding 3 red roses for a splash of color, and we've used red in keeping with tradition at Christmas, but these can certainly be made in any color combination you prefer.
Lastly, we've incorporated some hypericum, these little berries are a great touch and they're reminiscent of holly berries this time of year, and again, they are available in a variety of colors.
Similar centerpieces, such as these are great to mix and match among your tables. You could place the smaller sized centerpieces on half of your tables and the mid or larger size on the remaining tables.
Below is a set of three other pictures showing a difference in vase size along with flower amounts.
Sometimes all you need is a simple spot of color and freshness, in these instances we like to suggest a single gerbera daisy blossom floating in either a bubble bowl, or a cube vase. These work especially well on highboys, outdoors where there may be wind, or simply a small area such as in a powder room.
